Complete uninstall of MySQL from Debian
Posted on 2006-05-19
I am currently running Debian Sarge 3.1 and have installed MySQL-Server-5.0 deb package. I would like to uninstall the complete package so I run the following:
aptitude remove mysql-server-5.0
I have also tried aptitude purge remove mysql-server-5.0
I understand that some depencies like mysql-common and mysql-admin are still floating around. So i go and uninstall them too. But when I go to reinstall Mysql-server-5.0 on the same machine, then try to configure the password, it cannot be changed. So, in completely uninstalling MySQL from linux (debian) what other files should I be addressing for a complete uninstall?
