[FIXED] Wrong instructions in README.TXT

Hi,

in the readme.txt included in the installation package there's a little mistake:

these instructions

Uninstalling oneye
    * Follow the instructions from "Installing oneye".
    * Select "Uninstall oneye" form the select box and click "Continue...".
    * Click "Yes" to confirm uninstalling oneye.

have to be replaced by

Uninstalling oneye
    * To uninstall oneye login as root user and start "System Preferences" (eyeControl).
    * Select "Uninstall oneye" tab under "System".
    * Enter your root password, click on "Uninstall oneye" and confirm in the dialog box which appears.

Here is the correct way to uninstall oneye wink

The french instructions are available here and I can write a complete french "readme.txt", lisezmoi.txt, if needed.

Re: [FIXED] Wrong instructions in README.TXT

Both should work. The current one is useful for broken installations. So shall we add the latter one, too?

Re: [FIXED] Wrong instructions in README.TXT

The actual text says

Uninstalling oneye
    * Follow the instructions from "Installing oneye".

and the installation's instructions say

Installing oneye
    Once you have downloaded oneye, follow these instructions to install:
        * Extract the package you downloaded.
        * Copy the extracted files to your web directory (e.g. via FTP).
        * Start your web browser and browse to "installer/".
        * Follow the instructions the installer gives you.
        * Log into your new oneye system. (username: "root")

So, it means that to uninstall oneye we have to re-upload the install-files to access to the "installer/" folder... I'm not sure it's the simpliest to do hmm

But note: during the uninstall process, the "mobile" folder isn't erased with readme's method and the "eyeOSxxxxxxxxxx" folder stays (empty) with the method I've proposed.

So, I think the original method will be the best one when the "mobile" folder is erased too wink


Thanks for your explanation!

Just updated the readme file in revision 7417. Hope it's okay this way?!

Sorry, I've tested the uninstall process with the official 0.8 release ;/
