forceinstall Mcafee Agent for linux

Does anyone know how to force the installation for McAfee Agent for Linux ?

I've installed the VSE for linux 1.7, but it comes with native agent, which i've also installed.

When i try to install the manageable agent, it tells me that the agent is already installed.

When i try to remove, it tells me that an error of dependencies was found and can't continue.

Re: forceinstall Mcafee Agent for linux

It has been a long time since I worked with linux but if I recall don't you have to be logged in as root and run the following commands to perform the uninstall:

rpm -e McAfeeVSEForLinux

rpm -e MFEcma

rpm -e MFErt

and then to install (still under root):

tar -zxvf McAfeeVSEForLinux-1.7.0

rpm -ivh MFEcma

rpm -ivh MFErt

sh McAfeeVSEForLinux-1.7.0-installer
