Ola

I still consider myself a newbie, so my language might not be appropriate...

I was looking for some software to stream webcam, and I came accross zoneminder and mythtv.

I did not know how to operate those two, so I unmerge them.

The thing is, that in /home folder I have my user folder and mythtv folder...

So I checked /etc/passwd and /etc group:
Code:
C6820s grom # grep 'mythtv' /etc/group
tty...mythtv
uucp...,mythtv
audio....,mythtv
video...,mythtv
C6820s grom # grep 'mythtv' /etc/passwd
mythtv....:added by portage for mythtv:/home/mythtv


As far as a newbie, I can tell that I have mythtv user on my computer...

How can I get this mythtv out of the system?

Thank you

Probable "emerge -C mythtv" will do that and if not a "userdel mythtv && rm -r /home/mythtv" will.

Ola Maitreya,

As I mentioned I did unmerge (emerge -C mythtv),
but user mythtv remained.

Anyway, I did as you suggested:
userdel mythtv && rm -r /home/mythtv,
and that took care of the rest of mythtv.

(Basicly I had the same idea,
to remove the user (mythtv)
and than to remove the folder,
but I was unsure if this is a way to go,
since unmerging did not remove all mythtv... )

Maitreya, thank you for your help!
