I did the following..
apt-get install clamav
now I want to get rid of it and I mean all files connected to it.
apt-get remove clamav.. does remove clamav but there is about another 20 files refering lying around.
Kindly please is there a way to remove/uninstall software and remove it totally.
aptitude purge package
apt-get purge package
Just a little bit difference though.
apt-get --purge remove package
This would remove even the configuration files associated with the package.
