How do I uninstall VMWare Server 2.0 on Fedora 10?


I installed VMWare Server 2.0 on my Fedora 10 box. The VI Web UI frequently errors out/crashes and when I go to shutdown my machine, it hangs as it is trying to stop VMs.

I can't find the vmware-uninstall.pl file. It does not exist in /usr/bin. How do I completely, correctly, and safely remove VMWare Server 2.0?

Wouldn't it be better to try and solve things? What error messages does it show when crashing (if any)? And does it really hang? Or do you perceive it's hanging while it actually is trying to save changes to disk? What do the VMware services and guest VM logs say?

Why dont you just go ahead and delete all the installed files from the installation location. That should do the trick!
(Worked everytime for me)
