    Hello

    I would like to completly reinstall mt-daapd on debian, because I made some kind of a mess with my current mt-daapd (I’m trying to solve my problems now for like 3 h or something….)

    So can please somebody tell me what I have to delete in addition to “arp-get remove mt-daapd” (because I think this does not completly deinstall it)

    thx very much

    I think the db is probably not part of the package, so you’ll want to delete that with “rm /var/cache/mt-daapd/songs.db” (or songs3.db, if you are using sqlite3).

    Then just do a regular apt-get remove –purge mt-daapd, which will get rid of config files, too.

    I though the correct order was:

    apt-get remove mt-daapd –purge

    But you might aswell run this:

    apt-get install mt-daapd –reinstall

    thx for your help!

    I just had to remove /usr/share/mt-daapd after the deinstallation.

    But now it works fine!

    Must work either way, because I regularly do “apt-get remove –purge foo”

    *hrm*
    And now days we are supposed to use ‘aptitude‘ instead of ‘apt-get

    Like ‘aptitude purge mt-daapd‘ etc

    I usally just change ‘apt-get‘ with ‘aptitude‘ and it works 😉
