    Remove extra dbus packages CLI


    I did the PCLOS BU big update, and it has some bugs. (needs a can of Raid really).

    So I cannot load X-server; but do have a CLI.

    Trying apt-get install update reveals multiple dbus versions installed. I did apt-get remove dbus, but got something like this:
    Code:
    Package list read and done
    Dep tree built 
    
    Package dbus is virtual package provided by
       dbus#1.0.2-2pclos2007   1.0.2-2pclos2007 [Installed]
       dbus#1.2.3-2pclos2007   1.2.3-2pclos2007 [Installed]
    You should explicitly select one version to install.
    W: blahblahblah multiple dbuses installed
    ...
    ...
    ...
    Help?

    Try specifying the dbus package you want to remove.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove dbus#1.0.2-2pclos2007

    Hi reed!

    I haven't booted up PCLOS lately, since the 'Big Update' instructions were a little wrong, AND, since I found corruption due to a bad ramstick. One error is easy to track; 2 errors makes a mess.

    I got this one bookmarked now. Are you familiar with PCLOS 'Big Update'? Have you seen this multiple dbus version problem?

    Thanks...

    I don't use pclinuxos so I'm not too familiar, outside of reading about it. Even so, I don't trust big version updates like that much, and prefer to just do a clean install. I keep a separate home partition for that reason. I would check on the pclinuxos forums, they probably have a better idea what's going on and the proper fix.
