Uninstalling canonical landscape on ubuntu


Hello!

I want to uninstall landscape on my Ubuntu 9.04 headless NAS because I do not use it.

Running an uninstall simulation: "sudo aptitude -s remove landscape-client" produces:

...
The following packages will be REMOVED:
acl{u} hal{u} hal-info{u} landscape-client landscape-common{u} libffi5{u} libhal-storage1{u} libhal1{u} libpolkit-dbus2{u} libpolkit-grant2{u} libsmbios2{u} pm-utils{u} policykit{u} powermgmt-base{u} python-dbus{u} python-gobject{u} python-pexpect{u} python-pycurl{u} python-smartpm{u} python-twisted-bin{u} python-twisted-core{u} python-twisted-web{u} python-zopeinterface{u} smartdimmer{u}
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 24 to remove and 3 not upgraded.
...

To me it seems that it want to uninstall support for acl among other things. But I don't want to remove support for acl as I use it on my files.
And also should "hal" be removed?

Can somebody explain to me whether it is safe to carry on with uninstalling landscape-client?

regards
Klaus

Believe me when I tell you, you do not want to uninstall HAL, the "Hardware Abstraction Layer." Any procedure that promises to uninstall HAL should be passed up.

Probably caused by a bug in 'landscape'.

Suggest : delete the files displayed with the command

dpkg -L landscape-client

+ the generated files ( hidden files ) in /home/'user'/
.. and in /etc/.. ?

Could anybody execute "sudo aptitude -s remove landscape-client" to verify that you get the same output.
Note that the above command does no harm to your system but merely tells you what it would have done.

Please state your ubuntu version when replying.

Thanks in advance
//Klaus
