pkgtool, removing package taking very long


I'm new too Linux.

Tried installing Java, this is basically how I did it. Downloaded JSE (JDK + JRE) self extracting binary. Extracted it, made it into a .tgz package using makepkg and default options, and then ran the package to install it.

This was silly I know now, so I'm gonna do it again, but first I have to remove it, so I ran pkgtool, and chose to unistall the package. Its now been sitting at the "Package removal in progress" state for over 30 minutes, is this normal? Looking at the System Load in KDE, my processor is doing very little, and HD activity is non existant.

Any ideas? I get the feeling I screwed up something

[edit]Forgot to add, I ran the tail command in another console, and nothing seems to be going on

Maybe your package had errors? Consider running it through pkgcheck for a check.

Maybe you should uninstall manually each file.

list all the files (with their path) contained in the .tgz package and then remove them from your system (as root).
