I was actually just playing around with Likewise the other night.
You should see a bunch of scripts in /etc that have 'lwidentity' in
Here's what I had on my system:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 267 2008-03-21 16:39 hosts.lwidentity.bak
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 269 2008-03-21 16:31 hosts.lwidentity.orig
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4.2K 2008-03-21 16:39 krb5.conf.lwidentity.bak
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3.3K 2008-03-21 16:22 krb5.conf.lwidentity.orig
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 502 2008-03-21 16:43 nsswitch.conf.lwidentity.bak
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 499 2008-03-21 16:31 nsswitch.conf.lwidentity.orig
Restore the .orig files. (mv /etc/hosts.lwidentity.orig /etc/hosts)
Once you've done that, you need to restore PAM (Pluggable Authentication
Modules and Linux's 'login' system).
Go to /etc/pam.d/
There you'll find another bunch of lwidentity files. Restore them (mv
If you need help with the commands to move all those files, let me know.
That should restore PAM and your basic system config.
The last step is optional, and I don't know if it will work on the
ubuntu-supplied packages of likewise. The packages from the likewise
site install to /opt/likewise-open. If you rm -rf /opt/likewise-open
you should have it completely out of your system. (You said you already
rm'd /etc/init.d/likewise-open and the /etc/rc files.)
Let me know if you have trouble.
