Uninstall / deleting files
I did a lot try'n'error to get familiar with Linux (and we are big friends now).
That means, I have installed a lot of unnecessary RPMs, did (partly malfunctionally) third party scripts and compiled some tools, not knowing what I do and even not needing that tools ;-)
I know, that RPM keeps installed files in a database, but I strongly believe, that not all RPM-packages update this database.
And programs, that I have compiled, install themselves via make install. Is there any way to make uninstall, if I deleted, what I built?
What I mean, how does someone, who knows Linux better than me, keep track of files he installs, and, perhaps, how does this guy decide what files are necessary and what files can be removed. Even when those files are installed by someone else.
Thanks a lot and thanks in advance,
