[Deepsea-users] How to "undo" a complete installation using deepsea

I downloaded the rpm.   The disengage safety portion ran OK.

When I tried the ceph.purge, it returned a number of errors like "Module function purge.configuration is not available"  and "Module function retry.pkill is not available".

I installed the deepsea-0.7.1-1.1.noarch.rpm.   Am I missing some other package?

Be aware though that it'll only be there temporally.
