So I see in Linux we can install software via rpm, automatic programs, and by compiling source code. But how do we go about getting rid of software when the time comes. I know sometimes installers will spread files around in different folders. How do we track all those files and remove them?
I know rpm's usually come with an uninstall option. But what about the other times.
Sorry if this is dumb, I just want some advice on how to maintain control over my filesystem.
