Default Removing users on rolling release, and upgrade manager not working
I have installed a rolling release working fine but a couple of problems.

Update manager notifies when updates/upgrades are available but the following happens:-
Open update manager>
Enter password (I have tried both root and user password) with root password authorisation box disappears with user password upgrade/update screen appears starts update/upgrade then stops and disappears.
To update I have to open a terminal as root and use "pc-pkg update", "pc-pkg uograde" to install.

During the upgrades install a message appears "If you are not using Samba remove the following directories" (it was took quick to write them down).
It also says to "manually remove" the following users colord, polkit, avahi, haldaemon, vboxusr, webcamd, pulse, kdm, and gdm.

Is it O.K. to remove the Samba directories and the users?
