Hey guys, my name's Tom. (you could skip to the question if you don't care about attempts of having people skills)
Just registered. You could say this forum has been referred to me by Google and slackbook-2.0
My interest in Linux started in 99-ish, with Slackware, of course. I gave up on it because my English and computer skills weren't as good so I couldn't make ppp run
After that I've tried Red Hat, Knoppix for experimenting mostly. More recently I've tried OpenSUSE and Ubuntu (which were somewhat strange and Windowsified) and then went back to Slackware because I've read and heard that this is what Linux should be.
My current Linux "achievements" are compiling a kernel (2.6.34 now, from 2.6.29-6 stock) which made me learn why VESA console support and sky2 device driver are important
Ummm, also running Samba and mediatomb and disabling PCMCIA and ACPI crap from init scripts.
After the latest reinstall of Slack, I downloaded the gcc 4.5 source, compiled it and installed it. So while browsing around with pkgtool, I noticed it still says gcc is 4.3.3 so I am planning on removing gcc with pkgtool (after compiling the source) and then, install it again. Which leads me to my question: how to uninstall a program I've installed via "make install" I vaguely recall few sources that also had "make uninstall" but I also tried it on something (I know "something" is really helpful) few days ago and it said there was no rule for 'uninstall'
So, how do I uninstall stuff?
Obviously reading what "make install" installs and erasing it manually will be a one albeit crude way of doing so.
Thank you all for your time and answer this so you make me feel welcome
