Question Netscape install failed !


In my ReHat9 Box, once I failed my Netscape installation (because I disconnected from the internet), then I was started the installation again. Finally Netscape gave an error, as installation corrupted.

Is there any way to remove all the current installation files and install again as a new installation?



Thank you for reading....!

Nuwan.

I assume that you would like to uninstall the .rpm file ?
rpm -e package.rpm

NOTE: Sometimes this can give error's like: "Uninstall of ... would break dependencies" In that case try APT4RPM which also take care for the dependensies.

Hope this helps
