apt-get remove chrony doesn't remove all?


I've installed chrony using apt-get install chrony, but decided to use something else instead. I then uses apt-get remove chrony and hoped all files would be removed. But there is still a chrony directory in /etc/ and a chrony script in /etc/init.d/ ... should I remove these manually, leave them be or something else?

I'm quite new to linux... please be gentle

Regards, Asger

You can use the --purge option in aptitude to remove all traces of a once installed program.

#dpkg -r chrony
#dpkg -P chrony (it will remove configurations used by the program)
