Upgrade/Reinstall breaks installation SOLVED


#1

Hi folks,

I was running RC4 then upgraded to 7.0.0. This proved to be very unstable, tried to reinstall 7.0.0 this then broke the installation entirely.
Then ran apt-get autoremove tribler and purge tribler
Then installed 7.0.1, still no joy.

Is there a way to fully and completely uninstall tribler?
Issue with hung python2.7 process:
***@### ~/Downloads $ tribler %U
Starting Tribler…
***@### ~/Downloads $ tribler --help
Starting Tribler…
*** 13981 14.2 3.4 2892192 524260 ? Sl Feb03 1641:51 /usr/bin/python2.7 run_tribler.py

apt-get autoremove/purge tribler
reinstall RC4
WORKS


#3

autoremove/purge RC4 then install 7.0.1 works as well.

Might want to have a look at how the install script deals with existing installations.

It seems to think that RC4 is a later version to 7.0.0

Purge should remove all the application files except for the state directory. You have to manually remove it for the completely fresh installation. It is located inside /home//.Tribler directory.

autoremove/purge RC4 then install 7.0.1 works as well.

Thank you for reporting. We’ll look into it.
