5.2: Uninstalling all packages.

Heyya,

OpenBSD is at 5.2 now. And been using it for a while, and trying to get my hands dirty on Gnome and xfce. First, what? 5.2? I thought I was already on that? Well, that was on -current, but now on -release.

With packages installed, and by installing bloated wm like gnome, surely I will need to delete the packages sooner or later. Which I do after 2 days of trying out Gnome.

pkg_delete is adequate, but when trying to clean up lots of gnome's dependencies, there's a better way.

It's amazing what gem is stored inside old news. For instance, http://www.openbsd.org/faq/upgrade37.html.

Yeah, pkg_delete /var/db/pkg/*. But remember that you're doing this because you want to uninstall ALL PACKAGES. Like me.

Now I'm trying out xfce.

p/s: Not sure if it's just my office but I can't seems to read all my gist. Hmmm.
