EXAMPLES

removes all flavors and package types with the name ``foo''.

 gpt-uninstall foo

Also removes all flavors and package types with the name ``foo''.

  gpt-uninstall 'foo-*-*'

A third way of typing the same uninstall. Note the single quotes.

  gpt-uninstall '*-noflavor-*'

Remove all of the packages with a 'noflavor' build flavor.

  gpt-uninstall '*-*-*'

Remove all packages. Note that files generated by gpt-postinstall will not be removed

BUGS

Currently the flavor check that gpt-uninstall uses only works if the flavor is installed by gpt-build. And so for example:

 gpt-uninstall foo-gcc32-*

will not work. The work around is to uninstall the packages individually using something like:

 gpt-uninstall -name=foo -flavor=gcc32 -pkgtype=pgm

Or use a wild card for the flavor to uninstall all flavors of the package.

 gpt-uninstall foo-*-*
