Just installed LH 64 and wanted to remove some unwanted packages, like Abiword, Wine, etc....

after about half an hour going around in a circle , always ending up using PUP-CONTROL-INSTALL-ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS-PPM (Puppy Package Manager)

there is an UNINSTALL box, however I can not find a way to see a list of installed packages (?)

Am I in a wrong place ?
Do I miss something ?

How to remove originally installed packages ?

I don't use LH 64 but does it not have Remove_Built-in Packages under the setup menu like most other Puppies?

You can boot with lhp pfix=pure64

That will bypass loading Wine and 32-bit libs.

In the upcoming 6.02 and later Wine will be moved to an SFS add-on, (not included in the base ISO.) Abiword is small, deleting wouldn't make a difference. If you want to remove it from the menus, just delete /usr/share/applications/abiword.desktop. Works with other apps as well.
