remove rpm manually?


here is basically what is going on: I am running Red Hat 9, and I tried installing wine so that I could run kazaa lite. I was getting a segmentation fault every time I tried to run wine, and I read a few places that people had similar problems and corrected them by uninstalling and installing from source (I installed from binary). But when I try to remove the package (either from the console or graphical), it hangs up and I have to kill the process. In graphical mode, it hangs up when processing the RPM headers just to list the installed packages, but I'm pretty sure that its the wine RPM that's causing it to hang. any ideas?

ps. I'm posting this in the newbie section for a reason, so I'm hoping the answers aren't too complicated

I'll try it out...I want to figure this out though.

rsingh - that was what I meant when I said that it locked up when I did it through the console as well. it asks for my root password and the gets stuck.

rpm -Uvh package-name
for upgrading a package.
rpm -e package-name
for removing a package.
Does it hang when you first become root and then issue the rpm command?
