    Removing a program


    Want to remove Quanta xx.x before I install the 3.2BE version.

    What's the best way to go about it? Or should I just install over the top?

    Salck 9.1, fluxbox, Quanta from the distro install.

    Ta.

    use pkgtool to remove it.

    Or use : upgradepkg

    Usage: upgradepkg newpackage [newpackage2 ... ]
    upgradepkg oldpackage%newpackage [oldpackage2%newpackage2 ... ]

    Doh!

    Forgot about that

    I'm hoping it'll pick it up under pkgtool.

    cheers.
