how can I remove packages from 001-core module

Post#1 by roelof » 03 Jan 2014, 14:04


For my project I need to have shadow pam-enabled and also a new version of glib.

How can I change this the best way in I think core.xzm and or devel,xzm ?

For shadow pam you will need to recompile shadow after you have PAM installed. Instructions here

To remove the current glib (which will no doubt bring problems for other packages) you need to unpack the 001-core.xzm module into a folder and then remove your packages:

mkdir /tmp/un
xzm2dir 001-core.xzm /tmp/un
removepkg -root /tmp/un glib2-2.36.4-x86_64-1
