    ok here is my problem that i have been working on for a while...

    i have a 32gb ipod touch 2nd gen that i used redsn0w to jailbreak. i used cydia to install all kinds of apps and themes and such... anyway today i tried to install vwallpaper. but then cydia comes up with this error:
    "failed in buffer_write(fd) (6, ret=-1)"
    everyone says "simple! you dont have enough room on your OS partition. just uninstall an app (manage, packages, pick an app and then click modify, remove, confirm) and then install BossTool and use that to move stuff around.
    this is the tricky part. everytime i try and uninstall an app, at the confirm step under modifications it has install GNU Debugger before the app that i am trying to remove. so in the cydia queue its downloading GNU db (which it cant do cuz there is only 3 mb left on the partition) before it will remove the app that i am trying to remove.

    so what i need is either a way to clear the queue somehow, or a way to uninstall cydia apps from ssh or something.

    o and ive tried using terminal

    su root (return)
    alpine (return)
    apt-get remove [PIRACY]us (i just put a random app)

    but then it just says that it cant find the package.

    HELP!

    did you try going into cydia and hit cancel and clear? If not then try to manually remove the applications from SSH if you dont understand reply back

    Or if you wanna be really cool.
    Install Icy and go in there.
    It deletes stuff smoother. :'D

    @Stecklars tried this, and it took the app away from the home screen. but in cydia if i go to manage and then storage, it says it still only has that same amount of space.

    @iOwnLP i would, but i cant install or uninstall anything.
