How to UNinstall VirtualBox.run?
OpenSUSE 11.2 64 bit.
So, I have mistakenly deleted the VirtualBox.run install file, so I cannot run this command now:
When you run the command "locate VirtualBox", that's all locate will look for. Not all files installed by VB will have the regex VirtualBox in the file name.
Try searching for the regex vbox as well; also make the search case insensitive: locate -i vbox:
In your other thread re. VBox you mention two versions:
Version 3.0.6_OSE r52128.
Which is the one you've got installed? I think the OSE versions are usually installed through the package manager. The .run (PUEL versions) usually put most of their files in /opt/VirtualBox, and modules in /lib/modules/uname -r/misc.
Thanks for the suggestion, I'll follow up soon.
I'll reply to rest of the post when I am in office tomorrow.
Other suggestions :
Install the Suse "vbox" : # zypper in virtualbox
( Or # 'zypper in virtualbox-ose', if it still is Suse 11.2 ).
Should overwrite the files ( or some of the files.)
rpm -ql virtualbox : Will show all the file names and locations.
And you can uninstall the Suse version with # zypper rm virtualbox
May be also remember the files in /home/ : ~/.VirtualBox/
And .... /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/3rdparty/vbox/vboxdrv.ko
