Where did you do the software installation when you installed it? You usually have to specify a destination, which is where everything will go. Check for that directory, and blow it away if it exists.

Whether you have a backup of it or not is impossible for anyone besides you to answer. What do you use to back up? On what schedule? Was that directory included in the backup? Was the software installed before the last scheduled backup was run?

If you're just talking about another copy of it elsewhere on the disk, once you find the installation directory, you can do a find on some of the libraries/executables, and see if they exist elsewhere.

If you installed via the pkg mgr, then use that to uninstall.
Otherwise, tell us the method you installed with.

I would recommend joining oracle forums here:http://forums.oracle.com/forums/cate...?categoryID=84. They might help you a whole lot faster.

You check if it was installed via rpm/pkg mgr

rpm -qa|grep -i oracle

It was probably installed with the Oracle installer. If you know the directory, you can shut down Oracle, and (as root) "rm -fR /ora/app/oracle/product/10.2.0", and that will get rid of that whole directory, with all the files in it.
