Uninstalling programs


Hi everyone,

I installed valgrind-3.3.1/ but had valgrind-2.2.0 installed in my system. When I write on the shell valgrind --version I still get the version 2.2.0. Probably because it is still installed but, I don't know how to uninstall programs in linux, without a package manager. How can I uninstall it from command line?

Thanks,

Ed.

As root, try "rpm -e <whatever package name>". You can also do an "rpm -q <package name>" to see the name. Man rpm should explain more options.

How did you install the newer version of valgrind? If you haven't installed it using a package manager, then it will probably not even show in the listing of the package manager.

Run a
Quote:
which valgrind
or
Quote:
whereis valgrind
to see where your installations are.

You can have two or more different versions of the same software installed, but these have to be in different locations. You then have to run each by entering the full pathname to the executable.
