[SOLVED] Impossible to uninstall /usr/lib/ioquake3 (and still running in background)

Post by Charcot21 » Mon May 06, 2019 3:40 am

Hello,

I have unsuccessfully tried to to uninstall /usr/lib/ioquake3 (and still running in background and draining some CPU and RAM).

I already have done : sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove ioquake3

Can you help me ?

Jérôme

If the command completed successfully then you did uninstall it. But uninstalling a package doesn't terminate running processes. That's working as intended.

You can find and kill the running process(es) with System Monitor but it would be easiest to simply reboot.

The program is still running in memory. Uninstalling won't change that. Kill the process by whatever method you prefer. Rebooting would do it.


OK, I see GM10 beat me to the punch. So, I second GM10's motion.

Me thinks you removed the wrong package. As far as apt-file search tells me, this is what you're looking for:

Code: Select all

apt purge --autoremove openarena-server
