"Can anyone please tell me how to unistall a program??? "

There are several ways to install programs in Linux and how you uninstall a program depends on how you installed it. Did you install this program as a Debian package, a tarball, a rpm?

as an RPM... what is the difference?

bulliver 10-26-2003 04:30 PM

to remove rpm:

Code:

rpm -e packagename

The difference is huge. Every package manager has different commands to remove software.

Here are a couple different ways to uninstall software (for info only, don't try unless you know what you are doing!!!):
rpm -e foo
unmerge foo
pacman -U foo
make uninstall
rm -rf foo

You see...it all depends how it was installed

You haven't said which distro you are using. If it's Mandrake you use Mandrake Control Centre > Software Management > Remove Software. Easy as that.

Dunno about other distros, though!

I am using RH9... But i really wanna try and get Mandrake 9.1 but i cant find anywhere that i can download it from without joining a club... Also, how does the make install work.

Thanks

make install occurs when you are installing from a tarball.. the usual procedure is

./configure
make
make install

Now.... go to linuxiso.org to get your Mandrake CDs if you wish them :)

"what is the difference in the ix86 versions and the PPC???"

ix86 packages have been compiled to run on an Intel CPU. PPC packages have been compiled to run on a Motorola CPU.

You can download Mandrake ISOs from a number of sites. Including Mandrake's own site.

Here is a USA based site: Try

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/.../Mandrake/iso/

If you are in the UK, try Linux Format magazine. They regularly put Mandrake on their coverdisc.
