[Solved] Centos 8.2 crashes after installing wrong vbetools

Post by m0t0m » 2020/09/13 14:39:52

I installed vbetools from http://www.codon.org.uk/~mjg59/vbetool/ ... 1.1.tar.gz and ran some commands to check if it worked. It didn't work.

How I do remove it?

Found a stackoverflow https://serverfault.com/questions/42223 ... -on-centos to just run

Code: Select all

make uninstall
in the folder I extracted.

Next time will add

Code: Select all

checkinstall
to add it to the package manager.

That's completely the wrong way to update things. Only use dnf to update (or yum since it is the same thing). Do not do source installs on a packaged distro like CentOS or you will be stacking up problems that you may not discover for months or years.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

Yes, learning as I go along.
I couldn't find vbetools in a package manager so I tried what I found.

Can I consider it removed or is added to the problems stack?
