usually you can run dietpi-software to uninstall stuff that was installed with DietPi tools.

yeah I know but as the installation failed there is no webmin option in the uninstall menu so I'd like to start the script manually

nothing that can't be fixed ;)

do the following to get webmin available for uninstall
  1. execute the following on command line > nano /DietPi/dietpi/.installed
  2. change status of software titel 115 to 2 > aSOFTWARE_INSTALL_STATE[115]=2
  3. save & exit
  4. execute the following on command line > dietpi-software uninstall 115
