I installed kvm, which required this package, and then I actually
uninstalled it. However, this is the message that I receive when I
attempt to remove (and purge) vde2. (with a few lines removed)
wlynch at htpc:~$ sudo apt-get --purge remove vde2
The following packages will be REMOVED:
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?
Removing vde2 ...
Purging configuration files for vde2 ...
WARNING: You are just about to delete the root account (uid 0)
Usually this is never required as it may render the whole system unusable
Press immediately Ctrl+C if you want to abort
Ok, you really want it, I'll delete that account
The fact that it says that it's removing the root account, which it
doesn't, and that it only gives about 1 second to hit ctrl+c seems to be
a horrible setup. Please document what you're actually removing (if I
need to know that), don't say that you're removing root, and if you
actually want to give the user a chance to stop the uninstall, please
use something that actually waits for a response.
