Uninstalling software that was installed with package


Hello, I would like to know how to uninstall apps that were installed as part of the linux distro. Specifically, I installed the Peanut package (8.4), and would like to remove Koffice and install StarOffice. What is the cleanest way to go about this? Step by step for the newbie, please, or point me towards a good piece of info. Thanks a bunch, and Id like to say that I have barely touched my windows box since i started Peanut.

First question is, what distro are you using?

From the website...


To install....
Type 'mc' in a Xterminal within KDE or ICE wm
which starts the (Midnight Commander). Now
go highlight the package you wan't to install &
press the [F2] key, chose from the [F2] menu,
install Peanut .tar.bz2, .rpm, .deb, .tgz, [Enter].

To uninstal...
Type 'mc' in a Xterminal within KDE or ICE wm
which starts the (Midnight Commander). Now
move to this directory '/var/log/packages', again
highlight the package you installed earlier &
press the [F2] key, chose from the [F2] menu,
remove package name, [Enter].
