fc3 problems removing installed packages.
 
Hi all,

I am seeing some strange behavious when using the Add/Remove packages. I am on a fresh install of FC3. I did not choose to install Postgre SQL, but it got installed anyways. Then when I uncheck the box in Add/Remove Packages and click Update, i get a message saying it can't find the following installed:

libodbcinst.so.1 ('MyODBC', '2.50.39' '19')
unixODBC ('MyODBC', '2.50.39' '19')

I tried searching for both of these but didn't find theml.
It says it can't continue unless these are installed. For the sake of investigation, I tried uninstalling the web server it says it can't find httpd ('system-config-httpd', '1.3.1' , '1'), but if I run system-config-httpd from the bash terminal, the http config gui appears.

I'm a little confused as to how you go around removing some packages. This is a fresh install and I have yet to do an update even though it's asking for it.

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks!

if you have yum working y not try "yum remove pacage_name " it works on my fc3.
for example " yum -y remove httpd" "yum remove samba"

@m2azer
when u say " yum -y remove $packet_name ", does it remove all other packets which needs $packet_name?
or it romves $packet_name without checking depencies, like "rpm -e --nodeps $packet_name" ?

don't use the "-y" after yum and yum will show you all the files it will delete in order to remove the package you want to get rid of. so yes, yum will check for depencies first, list them for and will ask you if you want to remove them or not


thanks
