Ubuntu Installation :: How To Remove A Package From Autoclean Listing

Mar 1, 2010

I would like to tell apt, "hey, take packageA out of that list, cause I really need it, and I do not want to reinstall it out of fear it may mess up the configuration of that very same package".Anyone know what program and option I would use to accomplish such a task?(couldn't find anything interesting under the `apt-get` command.)

CentOS 5 :: Complete Software Listing For A RHEL5 Box (NOT An RPM / Package Dump)

Aug 31, 2010

I have a need for a complete software list off of an existing RHEL 5 system. I need this list to compare software installed to software on a government approved software list to ensure the compliance of this system. I was given an RPM Dump, listing all the 2000+ packages on the system... This does not translate to the Government Approved software list that I have to compare to. I do not have access to this system myself, so what ever method is prescribed for extracting the list I will have to pass along. What I need is either:

1) A way to convert an RPM Package dump to actual software names and versions, etc.


2) A method to extract a complete list of software (titles/versions/etc) from an instance of RHEL5.

Example: Instead of knowing that "pango-devel-1.14.9-6.el5" exists on the system I need to know that "Pango v3.0.x" is installed on the system. Many packages do not relate on a one to one basis with a specific piece of software via inter-dependencies etc. (not to mention the version of the software, not the version of the package/library). The Pango example is not the best example as you can see what software is likely the source of this package; however just because this package is installed, I cannot grantee 100% that the Pango software suite is installed, just that this package was installed...

Ubuntu Installation :: Aptitude Wants To Remove A Package?

Jan 19, 2010

i installed a package with dpkg --install and told it to ignore an unmet dependency because the package it depended on could not be installed with apt-get (it was a perl module) and i have manually installed the perl module, it works... however every time i do "apt-get upgrade" or anything like that it wants to remove the package i forced to install because it still thinks there are unmet dependencies, is there a way to either tell it to ignore that the package has unmet dependencies (i mean ignore that always, not something i will have to add every time i use aptitude) or is there a way to convince it that the package it thinks is missing (the unmet dependency) is actually met.

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove Package Using Live CD?

Aug 1, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.4 on a lenovo T500 yesterday.

Today I am almost sure to have a problem with the fglrx package.

Today I installed the graphics card accelleration driver - I think it is the fglrx, but I am not shure, because I used the gnome fancy gimmick offering this driver. Now the computer starts neither in normal mode nor in recovery mode. In the latter it displays very fast about two screens of the usual lines and changes then something with the display. Trying to use boot=/bin/bash as an additional boot parameter didn't work either. I even tried typing blind a login and something like "apt-get remove fglrx <return><return>".

Booting from CD works.

Here my questions: When I have booted from CD, can I see the synaptic history to verify that it actually is the package named above? When I have booted from CD, can I remove packages from the installed version?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Remove Virtual Package

Jun 15, 2011

i wanted to install zsnes emulator on natty 64, but it turns out there is no such package. so i tried zsnes_1.510-2.2ubuntu3_i386 using "force architecture" command but it failed due to dependencies problem. later i found amd64 version of zsnes deb package. now when i try to install it it says "it's not co-installable with zsnes:i386 1.510-2.2ubuntu3 (Multi-Arch: no) which is currently installed". i cannot find zsnes:i386 package in synaptic, removing or purging the package doesn't work (Virtual packages like 'zsnes' can't be removed), cleaning cache with apt-get clean doesn't change anything.

Debian Installation :: How To Remove Half-installed Package

Jun 30, 2010

Recently tried to install a new Wine package, but the install failed, so I removed it and reinstalled the old one. That installation also failed, and now the package is in a half-installed state and can neither be installed nor removed. I'd be most grateful for some help - I miss my Wine!

# apt-get install 0.9.47~winehq0~debian~4.0-1
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: The package wine needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
# apt-get remove 0.9.47~winehq0~debian~4.0-1
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: The package wine needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.

What does it mean by "an archive", and where can I find one?

Fedora Installation :: Add / Remove Software / No Package Cache Is Available

I now want to review and possibly remove some software with the Add/ Remove Software Tool. When I try to locate installed packages I get an error that reports 'No Package Cache Is Available'.

When I click on 'More Details' it says 'Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify it's path and try again'.Can anyone please explain what's going on, and what I need to do to get the package list rebuilt?

Recently I have installed Fedora 10. It comes with firefox 3.xx by default. Now I was wondering if there is any way through which i can update it to 3.5 version though yum.

Ubuntu :: How To Remove The Package

Jun 17, 2010

10.04 installation (that worked fine for weeks) does not boot anymore (soft lockup). After some googling I suspect that the problem is the installation of the hostap_utils-package that I performed the last time I could use it. I am on a Thinkpad X30 without CD-drive and don't have my docking station at hand, but fortunately I still have a working 8.04 installation on it and I from that I can mount the 10.04 partition.

So my question is: Is there a good way to remove a package from a 10.04 installation when you cannot boot it directly but have access to the filesystem? Alternatively could someone please post all the files that belong to the hostap_utils package so I can just delete them manually (even though that probably is not a clean way to remove a package..).

Ubuntu :: Cannot Remove The Package Kdm

Apr 20, 2011

I had installed some kde app a while ago which I didn't want anymore so I uninstalled it and noticed that I didn't need the million kde dependencies that program had required. So I uninstalled all those, and everything went fine except for kdm which gives me the following error:


$ sudo apt-get purge kdm
[sudo] password for user:
Reading package lists... Done


I was able to autoremove it, just not purge it (removing the config files left over).

Ubuntu :: How To Remove Package I Can't Find?

May 28, 2011

I couldn't find an amd64 version of the package I wanted, so I forced the architecture on the i386 version I found. (The package in question is xinput-calibrator, so that I can finally get my touchscreen to work.) I later found and added the repository that has the 64 version and tried to install it. It won't install the 64 version because I already have the i386 version. But it also won't let me remove the i386 version.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Remove Bad Package Installed From .deb

Oct 29, 2010

I attempted to install the CLI management tool for my Highpoint Rocket Raid card (rr62x) downloaded from this page: [URL] When I tried installing it, this is what happens:


# dpkg -i hptraidconf_3.5_amd64.deb
Selecting previously deselected package hptraidconf.
(Reading database ... 68853 files and directories currently installed.)


How can I get this package removed? I was able to get a different management tool installed to configure my RAID so I don't need this one. My system appears to be working, but everytime I use apt-get to install something else, it shows the hptraidconf package as failed.

Software :: Remove A Package And All Its Dependencies In Ubuntu 8.10?

Jan 8, 2009

I thought KDE is better than Gnome, and installed kubuntu-desktop on my Ubuntu 8.10 to get KDE. But then I found out my computer can't run KDE without serious laag, and now I want Gnome back. I tried switching back to Gnome, but now this is totally messed up. It's half Gnome and half KDE, plenty of bugs, and I got tons of KDE apps that I don't need. So I just want to remove package "kubuntu-desktop" and all it's dependencies. Maybe there's a fast and easy way to do it? I may/will want to do this for some other packages too.

Ubuntu :: Apt-get (use Aptitude Purge To Remove All Associated Files Of A Package)?

May 2, 2010

Did a fresh install of 10.04 Desktop 86_64 this weekend. One of the first issues I noticed right away was that apt was not function properly. Say for example you install the packages tor and vidalia (assume I'm running everything from root). #apt-get install tor vidalia This command will check and install necessary dependencies, for example 'privoxy'. Now if you decide that you don't want to use privoxy and instead use polipo, you would probably feel inclined to remove privoxy. Well I found that apt-get autoremove, apt-get remove, apt-get purge WILL NOT remove all the files/directories associated with the package. You'll find that after running each of these commands, there will still be directories, scripts, etc. in /etc/init, /etc, and /etc/rc*.d. The only solution I've found to completely removing a package is aptitude purge [package].

Ubuntu :: How To Find And Remove Broken Package References

Oct 14, 2010

A while back a disk error caused /var/lib/dpkg/status to go south - completely corrupted. I managed to rebuild it with the help of a script i found online, but now there's a package called libghc6-edison in limbo on my install. It has no sources, as it was custom built, and i cant seem to find the references to this thing. Apt cache shows that it exists, synaptic gives me an error in CLI every time i launch it referring to this package -Traceback (most recent call last):

I've tried grepping all the files in /var/lib/dpkg to no avail. Any ideas where else this information could be stored? i need to find all the references to the package and purge them. It seems to preven me from successfully pulling off a do-release-upgrade (in a VM for testing) as well as doing a remastersys dist (have to do remastersys backup instead).

The package was never available in Lucid, if i remember correctly, i had to compile it myself and debianize it, but i cant seem to find the sources on my build VM or anywhere in the installed end-product OS.
