#3 cleaner install/uninstall mechanism


The one thing that's preventing me from installing
and testing this is that the uninstall script seems
hand-generated -- if it happens to miss an update,
then an uninstall would leave unintended files around.

Is there a way for you to generate a packing list or
bom of the contents of the package, and then remove
based on that? I'd be ready to download and test the
driver if the removal process was a bit more linked to
the package receipt in this manner, rather than by
what appears to be a hand-updated file.

I do appreciate the inclusion of this script.

    I thought of this, but parsing the output of lsbom would be a major
    PITA (especially determing what is a directory or file). It was
    much easier to write a shell file.

    Of course, if Apple provided an uninstaller that used package
    reciepts life would be much easier. I really don't understand why
    they don't do this.

    I understand your concern, and it would make things easier for me
    to use the bom, but until Apple provides the tools to do so, it won't

    How safe would it be to use DesInstaller?
