Uninstalling RPM always fails on FC4


Hi,

On FC4 I install RPMs with "rpm -ivh" after working with the installed software I try to uninstall it with "rpm -e" and I got error message telling that the package is not installed.

"error: package webmin-1.220-1.2.fc4.rf.noarch.rpm is not installed"

when I do "rpm -qa | grep webmin", i get: "webmin-1.220-1.2.fc4.rf"

This issue is for all RPM packages , and I have it on my local FC4 server and other 2 remote servers also.

What is the problem? and how can I solve this.

My first command had a copy-past error. Sorry. I've corrected it.
Anyway, you remove a package by reffering to the package name. Not the rpm file name used to install the package.
Code:
rpm -e webmin
should also work.
