    IPK package removal command

    Disclamer: this has been used by a few users without error but i recomend getting a backup of your image first just incase you get green screen after.

    Thanks to pooface:

    log into box via telnet

    type:

    ipkg list

    This will list all installed packages
    Find the package name of the item you want to remove then

    type:

    ipkg remove package (changing package to actual package name without the .ipk)
