Apt-get to install and uninstall Golang

For this short tutorial, we will learn how to install, uninstall Golang with apt-get. We will also explore an interesting program that was created just to manage Golang installations and dependencies - GMV ( Go Version Manager ).

to install Golang

>sudo apt-get install golang

then confirm that the installation is ok

>go version

go version go1.4.2 linux/amd64

to uninstall Golang

>sudo apt-get remove golang

If you prefer use GVM ( https://github.com/moovweb/gvm ), the commands are

>gvm install go1.4.2

>gvm use go1.4.2 --default

to uninstall Golang and GVM

>gvm implode
