    Default Remove broken package

    I tried to remove a teamviewer package manually, and I chose to delete all folders and files from the "/" and after.

    Now YaST2 and zypper keeps saying that the package is already installed and did not make the removal
    How do I remove this piece of broken package?

    Thanks in advance

    You should of course remove it using zypper or YaST. How do you think zypper/YaST can keep it's administration up-to-date when you remove the legs under the table?

    Default AW: Remove broken package

    Install teamviewer new:
    Code:
    zypper in -f Name-of-the-Programm
    Then try to remove it with Yast2/zypper.

    When the above fails, you could try
    Code:
    zypper clean
    zypper ref

    Or,
    Simply do a "Force re-install" of the package which re-installs everything you manually ripped out
    Code:
    zypper in -f packagename 
    Followed by a proper uninstall
    Code:
    zypper rm packagename 
    Then, you can manually remove anything else that might still remain.

    Sorry, I did not see that your post and I've done more nonsense.






    I copied and pasted from another machine all files and folders that were deleted.

    Ok Now it's working

    Thank you

    Nothing wrong with doing the same the "hard way"
