Net-SNMP not removed properly


Hi All,

I had installed Net-SNMP 5.7.2 (Ubuntu 14.04/64-bit) using apt-get install snmp snmpd.
I wanted to use the latest version net-snmp 5.7.3 pre5 which i downloaded from sourceforge.

i uninstalled current snmp using

sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove snmp snmpd

then i installed the new package using ./configure, make, make install

snmpd -v gives the loaded version number but it gives the old version

root@dell-Inspiron-5423:~/Desktop/net-snmp-5.7.3.pre5# snmpd -v

NET-SNMP version: 5.7.2
Web: http://www.net-snmp.org/
Email: net-snmp-coders@lists.sourceforge.net

when i tried auto-remove again this is what i get

sudo apt-get purge snmp snmpd
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package 'snmp' is not installed, so not removed
Package 'snmpd' is not installed, so not removed

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
libmysqlclient18 mysql-common
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Should i remove the mysql package shown and recompile new net-snmp package?
Or is there any other solution?

I don't know if it will help in your case, but recently when I tried to remove an old Dropbox version so I could install a new one, I used the same apt-get purge system, but it did not work. In desperation I tried
Code:
sudo su
followed by
Code:
# dpkg --purge dropbox
That took out the old package and all the configuration files, and left an easy install for the new one.

You seem to be trying to compile source code for snmp. You have not installed a package. Compiling a program from source will not have any impact on your installed packages.

What messages did apt-get give you when you did this? Is the new version that you compiled yourself working properly? If so, then it would be ok to remove the mysql packages as your system suggests.
