Tried to install Firefox but ran out of room on /User...so didn't fully install...

But it shows up on 'Installed' list. Tried to remove it by clicking in checkbox and get checkmark and then click on 'gear' button. Asks if I want to remove Firefox, say yes...minute later it stops process, but it is still in list. Log says that "Package Firefox not found on external storages".

How can I clear this from list, so that I can install it on other partition with more room??

Tried removing in Aterm but there's no Firefox to remove...

Any suggestions?

There are two parts to this. You can check /usr/lib/ipkg/info/firefox.list and remove all the files listed in there to clean up and then delete the file itself. Then you need to remove the firefox entries in /usr/lib/ipkg/status

OK....
Type ipkg status firefox to see where is installed.
It will looks like this:
Package: firefox
Status: install ok installed
Root: /home/user
Version: 1.0


It means that the file description is installed in /home/user/usr/lib/ipkg.
So you have to go there and edit the status file and delete the strings related to firefox.
After that you have to go in the /home/user/usr/lib/info and delete the file firefox.list.
That' s it.
Hope it helps.
BYEZ!
