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?
Thanks for the reply, unfortunately I did zypper and YaST cripples and incurable. So there is no solution?
Install teamviewer new:
zypper in -f Name-of-the-Programm
Then try to remove it with Yast2/zypper.
When the above fails, you could try
Simply do a “Force re-install” of the package which re-installs everything you manually ripped out
zypper in -f *packagename *
Followed by a proper uninstall
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
Nothing wrong with doing the same the “hard way”
