#12231 closed bug (not reproducible)

Can't remove broken links in RO directories

Reported by: haiqu Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: File Systems/packagefs Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All


The user directories associated with development are Read-Only. If a devel package is installed then uninstalled, links to libraries are left there which are broken and they can't be removed.

Try rebooting -- the devel package might not really have uninstalled.

If a package is uninstalled and its contents is not removed, then that's either a bug or it is expected behavior, if you have updated system packages before (in that case the activation state is frozen until reboot).

As usual, a concrete example and a syslog would be helpful. Just tested OK (with an older Haiku image).
