how to remove the installed software

Hi

I am new to HP-UX.

I have installed a software "cfg2html-4.3..depot"

Ex:

lndsll03:/homeroot/cfg2html/9-4-2009->swlist -l product | grep -i cfg2html
cfg2html C.04.22.20090128 cfg2html


Now i want to remove this.

what is the correct command with syntax.

Re: how to remove the installed software

unset DISPLAY
swremove

then scroll through the software selection, find and highlight the software to remove and from the top menu (accessible by tab key), select Actions then remove selection.

there is a way to do it from the command line but since you said you are a newbie, this is a safer and easier way to do.

Hope this helps

Re: how to remove the installed software

You can also just use swremove to bring up the interactive tool, then search through the list to find the software you wish to remove. Handy when you want to remove multiple packages.

Hi Senthil,

For UI interface:
# swremove

Easiest will be using UI interface.
Use swremove and search that software, select it by pressing , and as mentioned go to Action tab and select remove.


Regds,

Sorry, that didn't come out too clearly. I meant to say just use "swremove" without specifying anything further.

Hi:

You _REALLY_ should do yourself a favor and spend some time reading. As pointed out in one of your earlier threads on the subject of the SD tools, I urge you to look at:

http://docs.hp.com/en/5992-5875/index.html

The above begins with terminolory and concepts.

Regards!

Re: how to remove the installed software

You could use the interactive way via

# swremove -i cfg2html

Choose the software, go to action tab and remove.

Re: how to remove the installed software

Just type 'swremove', this is a menu driven tool and it's easy to understand and work with this.
Also have a look on http://docs.hp.com/en/B2355-90681/swremove.1M.html

Re: how to remove the installed software

If you like GUI go to SAM and choose SD-UX and do it from there..life is easy :)

But if u want a command use
#swremove -i

Hi,
you and directly remove software by giving
#swremove cfg2html or
#swremove -v cfg2html
or
#swremove
it will open swremove screen and it will show you all software which are installed into your system, select the software which you want to remove from your system.

Re: how to remove the installed software

As if you are using GUI

goto

1>sam->software management

2>select--> remove local host software

mark the required software

---->select action->remove.

if you want to verify it again goto the first step
select ->view installed software

All the log files generated will be in /var/adm/sw/swremove.log for further verification

you can do the interactive way by
swremove -i
