NAME

uic_purge - purges packages from the specified installation environment

SYNOPSIS

uic_purge [−hvyrIC] [<environment_path>] <package> [<package> [..]]

DESCRIPTION

uic_purge performs an intense uninstallation (purge) of the specified package list and all derived dependencies from the specified installation environment. In order to take in account potential changes in the list of additional software specified in the installation template, a reinstallation of all software listed in the template can be requested.

The special filesystems /sys, /proc, /dev, /dev/pts and /dev/shm are mounted in the installation area in order to offer full functionality during the uninstallation. The undesired automatic start of services performed by software installation is inhibited by a temporary policy (/usr/sbin/policy-rc.d fails with return code 101).

<environment_path> can be omitted if the command is launched from within the environment directory. Otherwise it can be:

-

an absolute path to the environment directory (e.g.: /home/leo/netpoldo-1404-32)

-

a path to the environment directory relative to the current directory

-

a path to the environment directory relative to the default working path (usually /usr/src)

OPTIONS

−h, −−help

shows the help for the command.

−v, −−verbose

increases the verbosity level of the command. If specified more than once, the verbosity level will be increased.

−y, −−yes

assume Yes to all queries and do not prompt

−r, −−remove

only remove packages instead of purging them

−I, −−do−reinstallations

reinstall all packages listed in the template

−C, −−skip−customization

skips the installation customization

EXAMPLES

uic purge −vy htop partclone

if the current directory is the home of an installation environment (the uictpl.conf file is there) and the installation environment was properly initialised and populated with uic create, the packages htop, partclone and all derived dependencies will be uninstalled and purged without asking for confirmation. The command will produce verbose output.
