NAME
removef - remove a file from software database SYNOPSIS
removef [ [-M] -R root_path] [-V fs_file] pkginst path... removef [ [-M] -R root_path] [-V fs_file] -f pkginst removef informs the system that the user, or software, intends to remove a pathname. Output from removef is the list of input pathnames that may be safely removed (no other packages have a dependency on them). The following options are supported: -f After all files have been processed, removef should be invoked with the -f option to indicate that the removal phase is complete. -M Instruct removef not to use the $root_path/etc/vfstab file for determining the client's mount points. This option assumes the mount points are correct on the server and it behaves consistently with Solaris 2.5 and earlier releases. -R root_path Define the full path name of a directory to use as the root_path. All files, including package system information files, are relocated to a directory tree starting in the specified root_path. The root_path may be specified when installing to a client from a server (for example, /export/root/client1). Note - The root file system of any non-global zones must not be referenced with the -R option. Doing so might damage the global zone's file system, might compromise the security of the global zone, and might damage the non-global zone's file system. See zones(5). -V fs_file Specify an alternative fs_file to map the client's file systems. For example, used in situations where the $root_path/etc/vfstab file is non-existent or unreliable. The following operands are supported: path The pathname to be removed. pkginst The package instance from which the pathname is being removed. Example 1: Using removef The following example uses the removef command in an optional pre-install script: echo "The following files are no longer part of this package and are being removed." removef $PKGINST /dev/xt[0-9][0-9][0-9] | while read pathname do echo "$pathname" rm -f $pathname done removef -f $PKGINST || exit 2 0 Successful completion. >0 An error occurred. See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Availability |SUNWcsu | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ pkginfo(1), pkgmk(1), pkgparam(1), pkgproto(1), pkgtrans(1), installf(1M), pkgadd(1M), pkgask(1M), pkgchk(1M), attributes(5) 6 Apr 2005 removef(1M)
