Removal of Packages


Did a opkg list with telnet the other day, and saw I have several earlier versions of webif amongst other things installed. The full list is:
HMT 1.1.16, 1.1.19
LSOF 4.82
Nicesplice 1.5
TMENU 1.05
Webif 1.0.10-4, 1.0.15, 1.0.15-8
Webif Channelicons 1.1.10, 1.1.11, 1.1.12-1
Webif Charts 1.2

With latest versions of these packages also installed, is it OK to do a (forced) removal of these earlier ones, given that the warning message I get on attempting a normal removal tells me that they are mostly dependant on each other for operation?.

Is that the output from 'opkg list-installed' ?

'opkg list' will always show more than just the installed ones.
