    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.

          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
