Re: [vox-tech] can't remove postgresql

hey, peter:
thanks! I checked using dpkg, it didn't return anything, so all point to the direction that postgresql is not there; but why nmap insists that postgresql is open? Also, i start tomcat but it's not reported by nmap. I'll send the question to nmap's forum and see what they say.
thx again!

Hai, to get the exact name of the postgresql package try this:

  dpkg -l "*postgre*" | grep ii

It'll search for all installed packages (grep ii) with the string
"postgre" somewhere in the package name (dpkg -l "*postgre*").
