Add/Remove packages not removing
About 10 days ago I installed RH9. I decided to go for workstation install. I choose quite a few programs that I don't need . One of them was bind and I don't need a name server so I want to get rid of it. I also wanted to uninstall Apache because it is giving me some problems.
I am using the Add/remove programs tool and I do what seems the most logical, I uncheck the DNS and Web server. The number next to the program name sets itself to 0 and the details option dissappears
I click update and I get the message
Packages Not Found
The following packages could not be found on your system. Installation cannot continue until they are installed. It lists redhat-config-bind and redhat-config-httpd
The packages are still there as I can use the tools and they show up when I rpm -q
I am not sure why it says installation cannot continue when I am trying to uninstall??
So I recheck all the options for DNS and Httpd again and install it. When I try to remove it afterwards it does exactly the same thing.
So I deleted the redhat-config for bind and httpd manually and afterwards it worked fine.
I also want to delete the games and same thing happens again. Can't remember the files but it is pain if I have to remove them manually fiirst
Why would it be doing this and are there better ways of doing this?
