How to uninstall YUM?


I'm trying to find YUM to uninstall.. i went to Add/Remove Applications and can't find it in there... this "Add/Remove Application" is horrible, it's so difficult to find apps to remove.....

"rpm -e yum" on the command line will probably do the trick.

Why do you want to remove it, btw?

rpm -e pirut, it's the GUI frontend. You can install that once you've reinstalled yum. If you want.
