How do I remove chrome config folder? [Solved]

Post#1 by Ed_P » 12 Jul 2014, 04:52

Ok, I'm having some problems with a webpage in Firefox so I download the 04-chrome module and add it to my modules folder. I try Chrome for a couple of days and don't like it so I remove the module. Now when I boot I get a dozen or so errors on cp functions early in the booting process.

I trace the errors to .wh files. I delete .wh files and reboot. The errors remain. So I reboot to Always Fresh mode, attempt to delete the files again and this is my results.

Code: Select all

 Your data file has been mounted at: 
/mnt/loop

You can unmount it by typing uloop

Here is a list of the files:
etc  home  opt	root  usr  var

find /mnt/loop -name .wh.*
/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/Session Storage/.wh.000003.log
/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/Session Storage/.wh.MANIFEST-000002
/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/Extension State/.wh.000003.log
/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/Extension State/.wh.MANIFEST-000002
/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/File System/000/.wh..wh..opq
/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/File System/Origins/.wh.000003.log

Enter to delete, Ctrl+C to exit.

Deleting the found files
find /mnt/loop -name ".wh.*" | xargs rm
rm: cannot remove ‘/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/Session’: No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove ‘Storage/.wh.000003.log’: No such file or directory

rm: cannot remove ‘System/000/.wh..wh..opq’: No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove ‘/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/File’: No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove ‘System/Origins/.wh.000003.log’: No such file or directory

find /mnt/loop -name .wh.*
/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/Session Storage/.wh.000003.log
/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/Session Storage/.wh.MANIFEST-000002
/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/Extension State/.wh.000003.log
/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/Extension State/.wh.MANIFEST-000002
/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/File System/000/.wh..wh..opq
/mnt/loop/home/guest/.config/google-chrome/Default/File System/Origins/.wh.000003.log
So, how does one delete files that don't exist except when booting? :%)


-update- I deleted the /home/guest/.config/google-chrome/ directory, rebooted, and now they are gone. Very strange. imo
