Default How to completely uninstall ISPConfig?

Hi,

I have: /root/ispconfig/uninstall to uninstall ISPConfig and yet I still have the GDM/Gnome gdmgreeter hang problem after rebooting.

This means that ISPConfig is not completely removed and it has not restored my system state prior to the installation of ISPConfig.

Can someone please advise how I can *completely* remove ISPConfig so that my GDM/Gnome greeter works again?

Thanks!

ISPConfig is completely removed. I don't know why there's this GDM problem on Fedora...

I responded to another thread that discusses how to get ISPConfig to work with Fedora by creating the /etc/sysconfig/desktop file and to use KDE to get it working. I had basically explained that you might be able to get GDM working by choosing a different GraphicalTheme other than FedoraInfinity in /usr/share/gdm/default.conf, and may not need to create the /etc/sysconfig/desktop file.

It is clear to me that installing ISPConfig *does* affect Fedora 7/8's GDM probably indirectly by changing something in the system files (quite possibly the passwd, group, shadow files) that prevents the FedoraInfinity theme from working correctly, or so it seems.

It was discovered that /etc/shells had the following entry:
/SENDMAIL/ANY/SHELL

added to the end of this file and this caused havoc to many programs since python's function: libuser.get_user_shells() in module: libuser does not check if each shell in this list exists or is functional and so causes certain programs such as GDM, setroubleshootd and sealert to fail or hang.

Removing the /SENDMAIL/ANY/SHELL item from /etc/shells will allow GDM, and other programs that uses that python function to work.

I suspect that either sendmail, postfix, or possibly ISPConfig has added that line item in /etc/shells after installation but I am not sure which one of these applications made this change.

Please disregard my previous comments in changing the /usr/share/gdm/default.conf GraphicalThemes default settings found there.

Cheers!
Dan

Open /etc/shells and remove the /SENDMAIL/ANY/SHELL line from it.

Default Thanks a Mill...

...this worked for me after I experienced the same problem and freaked out when my Fedora system would not allow me to log in. These forums really rock and thanks to you all.

One thing I noticed, in the login screen, I now have an "ISPConfig Administrator" listed as a user. I wonder if this is because I changed the admin password within ISPConfig?? Anyway, all works now so thanks again.

Falko, do you think it would be safe to delete that user account?

If you uninstalled ISPConfig, you can delete this user. If you still use ISPConfig, you will break ISPConfig by deleting the user.

Thanks, I'll still be using ISPConfig, so I guess I will let it be.
