Yamu will be one of those handy uninstallers for programs installed from source code (make install).Why?
Since many programs doesn't include an 'make uninstall' option and you sometimes don't want the source laying around on your harddrive we (I) need a better solution than trying to locate all the files and remove them manually.Status
A first simple version is complete, no real use for it other than logging what the make install command (for the particular software) does and putting some (maybe not) useful paths to as where files could have been installed. It is all very beta, and a better version should be out soon. Planned
Basically I would like to have a fully automated, fail- safe, process of uninstalling all files related to a program installed from source-code. Both a prompt mode (where the user answers y
es or n
o for each file that should be removed) and an auto-mode (where yamu removes all files it thinks have been installed by )
