Is there a simple way to remove things I've installed via portage? I installed sox on my Gentoox Pro machine, which also had to install 7 other packages, including ALSA. I found a better way to solve my sound editing problem though, and want to remove all that stuff that was installed. How can I do this easily?
Try "emerge -c sox"teitoku wrote:1, I want ALSA removed, sound support, all that GONE.
then "emerge --pretend depclean" make sure it lists correct dependencies.
If it's OK, then run "emerge depclean"
Depclean removes unnecessary dependencies.
You probably won't need to magic it. If you do... Heh, sorryteitoku wrote:2, magic kills my system. It doesn't have a config for a fully native install, and trashes my linuxboot.cfg.
That full page warning it gives kind of freaks me out though.
I don't know where to look up what each of these is used for, so if somebody could take a look and let me know if it'd be safe to go ahead with the depclean I'd really appreciate it. Some look a bit risky to me.xbox root # emerge --pretend depclean
