I've installed SQLite on my Macbook, and now I can't uninstall the software, help?

If I execute which sqlite3, the bash answers /usr/bin/sqlite3. If I try rm command with -f flag, a Operation not permitted appears, If I try with sudo, same error. I want to uninstall the software because I'm not going to use it, I just installed it for practice the commands on this video.


I suspect this has something to do with the fact that SQLite comes preinstalled on OS X and is used by a number of core OS X applications like Address Book, ICal, Safari, and Mail. SQLite has a very small footprint (hence it's name) and although you might not plan on using it, OS X certainly does! I wouldn't worry too much about trying to remove it if I were you. ;)

Try using the "uninstall" command. Look it up. I think that helps...

Hope that helps! :dizzy:
