Unhappy How to identify and remove user groups from an aborted X Windows install?


I started installing X Windows on my VPS and soon neared my quotaugidlimit. I aborted the installation and did a
Code:
yum groupremove "X Window System"
command, but there are still a bunch of ugids lying about. I need to remove those that were associated with the aborted installation, but leave the rest alone.

How do I find which groups are related to the X Windows install so I can safely remove them?

Thanks,

Joe

The simple answer is that you can't determine which application created which user id's. Sorry to be so negative.
