remove RPM


Well im using FedoraCore3, and today I onyl felt like removign this RPM I installed earlier. How do I go about removing Bit Torrent from my system? I dont feel like using it anymore and have a different system I can use bit torrent on if i need it. I installed it from an RPM so how do I go about removign it? Im using GNOME if that matters.

You can remove an rpm by either using a package manager which installed the rpm in the first place or you can open up a console shell and type rpm -e xxxxxxxxxx(where xxxxxxxxxxx is the name of the rpm to be removed)hope this helps

No, just the name of the package e.g.
#rpm -e bittorrent
