Most of the Windows user know that when we install new program, it install itself in directory "program file" it also copies some necessary files and information to windows system (32) directory and windows registry.
What about the Linux? When I install some new program either from script or RPM, where files get installed. How can I know that which file is part of which installation? How can I remove unwanted files, broken links and not working programs without hurting others (files/program)? How can I know which file depend on which? Is there anything like Linux file cleaner (alternative of regclean of Windows)?
Is there any graphical user interface (like Windows Add/Remove program) in Linux?
Donít talk about Red Hat Package Manager (RHPM)? Because it only shows add/remove for companiesí software. I installed RealPlayer, MPlayer, etc on Red Hat 9 Linux and these software are now not shown in RHPM.
