why TC has no "live" remove extension system
« on: February 16, 2017, 03:45:07 PM »
Hi,

i am asking myself, why TC has no "live" removing extension function?
What i exactly mean is, in mostly every linux distro there is an package management system to install and remove packages, like rpm/apt/pkg etc..., why TC has not such like a similiar system without rebooting TC to remove extensions, tce-load is nice but not able to remove without rebooting, or i do not see such a feature on TC to stay on TC while extension is succelfully removed without rebooting?

There is no official "tce-unload" command because it would likely leave your system unstable due to cross dependencies between different extensions.

The memory usage of this kind of extension is very low.

It's very difficult to remove a extension without rebooting.
Nevertheless, there's a unofficial script just for that.
Here's the unofficial tce-unload script.

No doubt this may be a bit OT

however if you have an intrest in add/removing things from your envroment
the `nix package manager` can do this without rebooting and without
'leaveing your system unstable due to cross dependencies between different extensions.'
