    Red face tspc removal problem

    i actually installed a package tspc that is supposed to be a ipv6 tunnel.
    power went off before i could configure it..

    and now...if i install any softie frm synaptic (apt-get and dpkg also)..it gets installed..but an error msg comes and synaptic is freezed..i hav to foce it to close..

    the error msg is

    "Shutting down IPv6 tunnel: invoke-rc.d: initscript tspc, action "stop" failed.

    dpkg: error processing tspc (--remove):

    subprocess pre-removal script returned error exit status 1

    Setting up IPv6 tunnel: tspGetCapabilities error 2: SOCKET_ERROR

    if you are using udp, there is probably no udp listener at anon.freenet6.net

    "
    and even if i try to remove the software ..same error comesup..

    i tried this.."sudo invoke-rc.d tspc stop"
    it worked with admin privilages..
    i guess synaptic was running it w/o root privilages..
    is there a way i can uninstall the program??

    thanks

    I had exactly the same problem. Here's how I fixed it - it's actually pretty easy. You just delete the init.d script that keeps failing.

    Code:
    cd /etc/init.d
    sudo rm tspc
    sudo apt-get remove tspc
    Sweet as a nut!
