Hi pure
--> I thought I want to study how to remove the software. <--
Here is some stuff to read about it.

have fun...

EDIT
If you are saving changes, you can delete (whiteout) software with the pkgtool.
This will not delete the software in the original modules.
open a terminal > su to root and type pkgtool
But before you delete something,
Make a backup of your "changes" so that you can go back to the previous stage.
something might go wrong....better safe than sorry... :wink:
