Sorry for asking in a silly place, but how do you uninstall MyDSL extensions?

edit: sorry, dead link.
Instead, read Robert's post below.

To expand on his statement "They do not provide package management", this means that there is no "uninstall" in mydsl.

UCI packages can be umounted, so that takes care of them.

TAR.GZ packages are installed into /opt/program_name. Remove that directory and the application is gone.  All you are left with is none, some, or all of the following:
Personal config(s) in /home/dsl/ (could be a directory or a single file).
Icon and lnk files in /home/dsl/.xtdesktop/
A line in /home/dsl/.fluxbox/menu

DSL packages are the most difficult to remove, since they are installed into the base system.  If you really want to remove it, look inside the *.dsl package (it's a gzipped tarball) to find out what files were installed, and remove them manually.  Be very careful doing this, particularly with *.so* files (libraries), as some of them may have been in the original DSL system...removing them might break other apps, or possibly break your system.

Then ask yourself..."Why didn't I choose frugal?" =o)

Nobody reads Getting Started.
Nobody reads the web page for mydsl extensions, so I will post it here again!

Damn Small Linux myDSL Application Extensions

ALL DSL Extensions are made exclusively for Damn Small Linux.
This requires loading them from within DSL, as user dsl.
They are made for the liveCD and "frugal" type installs.
They do not provide package management, simply reboot.
While not made for hard drive installed systems.
most will work however it is not recommended.

I'm gone from the forums for a few weeks and now cbagger and roberts are flagellating the lazy asshole newbs.

It's like I've died and gone to heaven.

No good deed goes unpunished...
