uninstall software ( those not installed by yum/rpm)


Hi
I have installed some software (eg xawtv) which was in tar.gz pkg, the pkg installed nicely and works properly. However now I need to uninstall it. yum & rpm do not show the pkg as installed. Do I just delete the directory? If so, will some files still remain in other directories (eg some configuration files)?
Thanks

If you used "make install", then do "make uninstall" from the directory where you built the program.

uninstall software ( those not installed by yum/rpm)

Hi
I am trying to remove xawtv, when I do xawtv - version I get
"This is xawtv 4.0-pre, running on Linux/i686 (2.6.17-1.2174_FC5)"
I downloaded it from http://dl.bytesex.org/cvs-snapshots/...-145508.tar.gz
I installed it as follows
tar xzfs xawtv-20060815-145508.tar.gz
cd xawtv
./autogen.sh
./configure
make
make install

Unfortunately xawtv does not seem to have an uninstall script. You will have to manually remove the package from /usr/local if thats where its located.
