Installing / Removing Programs
I have a few q's regarding installing and removing programs.
1. Ok, so I download a tar.gz or an rpm or a package file like that. I go about the process of untar-ing it etc and it makes a directory with a bunch of files in it, I ./configure or make install etc, to install the program......
BUT THE QUESTIONS IS: is that program now installed to someplace like /usr/local/bin or /opt/kde/bin and it is safe to delete the directory where I untarred everything?
For example a KDE addon game. I install it, and now run the game from /opt/kde/bin/ so can I now delete the temp directory where I untarred/gunzipped everything?
2. Lets say I don't like a game or program I install, how do i delete it?
3. Lets say something goes wrong in the installa nd I say 'bugger it, I'll get rid of it'.... how can i locate the files that MAY have been copied over so i can delete it all together??
