Post ntp problem, uninstall how?


I have just used the Fedora CD's to "upgrade" from me RedHat9 install. When I run apt-get I get this message.

Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
W: There are multiple versions of "ntp" in your system.

This package won't be cleanly updated, unless you leave
only one version. To leave multiple versions installed,
you may remove that warning by setting the following
option in your configuration file:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated { "^ntp$"; };

To disable these warnings completely set:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated-Warning "false";

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

Now then, This is not causing any problems I can see, but I would like to fix it anyways. I dont know how to uninstall ntp, or what two versions I have installed. Can anyone help me?

Try
rpm -e ntp
to erase the old version.

Same message here.

RPM does not want to budge, --force is not allowed with deinstall, so how do I get rid of this obnoxious double?
