Dear Gurus ,
i installed wireshark with swinstall from internet CD, but unable to uninstall with swremove, i had alredy restarted the swagent ...here's the error.I tries searching simlar post , but could't find with solution :
vvv#whereis wireshark
wireshark: /usr/bin/wireshark
vvv#swremove wireshark

======= 03/29/09 13:11:50 vvv BEGIN swremove SESSION
(non-interactive) (jobid=vvv-0020)

* Session started for user "root@vvv".

* Beginning Selection
* Target connection succeeded for "vvv:/".
ERROR: Could not remove the software selection "wireshark"; it is not
available from depot or root "vvv:/".
* Software selection failed for "vvv:/".

Re: swremove wireshark

"wireshark" is the name of the command, but not necessarily the name of the swinstall package.

Use "swlist | grep -i wireshark" to see the package name. Then use that name with the swremove command to remove the package.

I think the Internet Express packages used to have "ix" prefixed to their names. Maybe the correct name is something like "ixWireshark"?

That's no criteria for assigning a perfect which Matti fully deserves.
