As I'm playing around with pfSense I saw the option 'Restore Factory Defaults' via the Shell (SSH). I had so much configuration changed I would give it a try. But after the 'reset' I noticed it is not a real 'factory default'. All my previous applications are still there (pkg_info).
Is there also a real clean install back to factory defaults? Because deleting all packages (and related programs/libs) will take some time. Is there a way to delete all packages (and related) with one single command?
It restores the default configuration, doesn't touch any of the binaries though they won't run. No way to truly get back to a 100% clean install short of reinstalling.
Absolutely clear. Is there a way to clean the old packages with just one simpel command?
no, but can pkg_delete them individually.
