Removing Blastwave from Solaris

This post has already been read 4089 times!

Solaris on spac is a lot of fun, however, sometimes you need to clear the deck of all the fun and start fresh.

With blastwave (CSW) you install pre-built binaries for your system as regular solaris packages. Removing them using pkgrm is a pain if you want to clear blastwave off completely and start fresh. However, there is a solution.

I found the command over at glaasse’s blog:


# yes | pkgrm `pkginfo | grep CSW | awk '{print $2}'`

Does the trick, and you can sit back and watch it happen. Be careful using the yes command and pkrm however.
