Is there a way to reset Slackware to it's initial installation


I'm setting up MythTV but want to change the direction on how I'm setting it up. I was going to just reinstall Slackware, but I remember reading that there is a way to remove all installed packages and return Slackeware to its initial freshly installed configuration.

TIA

-JJ

The only way I know of doing that is with slackpkg
Code:
man slackpkg

If you need to remove things like SlackBuild Packages, try running:

Code:
slackpkg clean-system
This will remove any and all 3rd party packages, but will leave official Slackware packages intact.
