Re: how to uninstall software in HP-UX system(Itanium)

Hi,

#swlist -> lists complete set
#swlist -l bundle -> lists all bundles
#swlist -l product -> lists all products
#swlist -l patch -> lists all patches

To uninstall software
#swremove

The above command is to remove the software in interactive mode. This will open a user interface when you can select desired software and remove it.

#swremove ->To remove in non-interactive mode
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

>>Is there a way to get a complete list of the installed software

Define "complete." If you mean a complete list of software installed with the 'swinstall' command, the 'swlist' is your friend (see the man page for details).

If the software was NOT installed with swinstall, then there is NOT any one simple way to get a list.

To uninstall software installed with 'swinstall' you use the 'swremove' command. If the software was NOT installed with 'swinstall' you are on your own to figure out how to uninstall it (according to vendor instructions).

Re: how to uninstall software in HP-UX system(Itanium)

to get a list of software:

swlist -l product


to install software, since you did not sound to have much experience with hpux, I'd suggest running

swinstall

and finding your software from the menu system that this application will present you. But you have to know how to get the application in the right format onto your system first. If you are a new hpux admin, I'd suggest learning about the system administration basics first.

Re: how to uninstall software in HP-UX system(Itanium)

use :

# swremove -i


this will take you to a tui interface:

select the software -> hit 'm' key to mark it -> Go to ACTIONS menu -> Select REMOVE.


Thats all.



or use :

# swremove
