How to uninstall TMSNC same sort of program


Hi, I was testing out the program above and there is a whole procedure to install it with the ./configure, make & make install. As always there are lots of stuff installed everywhere. I removed the original extracted file, but when I type the 'tmsnc' command it stills runs the program.
What is the way to completely remove the program? or any other programs installed that way??
Thanks.
im using mandriva 2008.0

The short answer is. No. There is no standard way to un-install something that has been installed from src.

There are really two options. 1. look in the Makefile to see if it supports being uninstalled. 2. Install it again, and log the output of make install. Then go through that log and see which files it installed and remove those files.

Fugly.

Hi.

If you've removed the sources for the program, (download and) unpack the source package again, then do './configure' then 'make uninstall' and it should remove everything from your system.

If you still have the sources from when you built, just do 'make uninstall', and you should be all set.

make uninstall may or not work - the makefile needs to support it, but definitely worth a try.

It's worth while using your package manager where possible to make these types of operations simpler (and updating too). Of course not all programs are available that way.

What's the command? If it's TMSNC, look for the binary in /bin, /user/bin, /sbin, etc and delete it. Use locate or whereis to find the command's binary

eg

locate command_name_here (will only work if you keep the database updates)

or

whereis command_name_here

Thank you, that is exactly what I did and now it worked. I guess it doesn't guarantee the fact that all files created by that application have been removed.

Thanks again

ps: the command was tmsnc
