Hi, i have some queries on removing programs. As you see, in windows, u need to uninstall programs not needed. But in linux, i cannot find any uninstaller or program to uninstall it. Is that a requirement and where is the program to load?
I am using mandrake linux 8.2. I have tried the 2 options given but it just said:
error: package opera-6.12-20030305.1-shared-qt.i386.rpm is not installed.
In the rpmlist, i can only see opera-6.12-20030305.3. So what should i do cos i cannot clean the old opera 6.1. I am thinking of installing the static version. The mozilla always give me the timeout error.
Pardon me if i am wrong. It seems that if i used mozilla and kmail and knode at the same time, one of them will not be given the time slice to process. So eventually it issues the timeout error.
If i used windows, i don't have that problem. How can i overcome that?
Thanks for the solution, it really work. So which means in future, i just need to issue this command to uninstall a program? And also for those .rpm files, normally after installation, how do i get them to run? It does not created an icon like windoze, so which folder should i look into?
And also reference to my another thread, how do u actually retrieve files from the cache memory. Just like in windoze, u actually can view the files in the temporary\content folder. How abt linux, which folder actually stored those cache data?
