You need to disable Mage_Checkout module through activation file (ie app\etc\modules) and remove all dependencies from other modules manually. You can achieve this by removing dependencies through activation files of other modules. Other than that, there is no other solutions in my knowledge.

Still you can expect some errors from other modules due to the lack of Mage_Checkout module since Magento core modules are not independent modules. There should be some unavoidable dependency in other modules. In those cases, you need to remove or replace such dependencies from other modules too. You can expect such dependencies in layout xml files or in some block or in some models.

  • as i already mention there is long list of module's. so can't do that. Aug 2, 2016 at 6:56
  • @QaisarSatti Yes. But you can avoid direct dependencies through activation files of those modules which are dependent on Mage_Checkout modules that will remove most of the errors. But removing Mage_Checkout module completely from the system is very hard. I remember which is mentioned by Marius once. He faced this issue while he convert Magento to a blog tool (CMS).

  • thanks but I ending up doing set the 404 page for these.. that will fulfill the requirement. Aug 2, 2016 at 7:06

rewrite the controller in my case Mage_Checkout

            <Spacename_Modulename before="Mage_Checkout">Spacename_Modulename</Spacename_Modulename> 

in controller add preDispatch and just add $this->norouteAction();

public function preDispatch()
