[Solved] Uninstall Transmission

Post#1 by luciano » 04 Mar 2015, 00:15

This is my first Post, I am testing Porteus for reusing donated computers for an NGO, so far works great but i have some troubles trying to find out how to uninstall an application, for instance transmission.

I am used to yum, apt-get not so much with usm depkg or slack - porteus tools in general, as far i go i am guessing i have to xzm2dir 001-core or something like that but i am a bit lost, how can I uninstall a 'core' (?) app like transmission.

Thanks.

Yes you need to unpack the module and remove the transmission package. To see which module it is in:

First boot into copy2ram mode
ls /mnt/live/memory/images/002-xorg.xzm/var/log/packages | grep transmission

# Unpack the module
mkdir /tmp/unpacked
xzm2dir /mnt/sdxY/porteus/base/002-xorg.xzm /tmp/unpacked

# Remove the package
ROOT=/tmp/unpacked removepkg transmission

# Repack the module
dir2xzm /tmp/unpacked /mnt/sdxY/porteus/base/002-xorg.xzm

# Cleanup
rm -rf /tmp/unapacked
