Removing (most) or KDE


I have just (for the sake of trying out) installed KDE 3.0.2 from source. Now, I got everything working but now I only want to keep what I need - basically I only need quanta, the html-editor. What's needed is kdelibs and qt and all the rest can be removed. Since I compiled it from source, what am I allowed to remove? Or is there a script to remove everything?
I have compiled KDE with --prefix=/opt/kde
Thanks

You need to leave qt, arts, kdelibs and kdebase. All other packages can be removed (make uninstall in their directories).

Well, kdebase is needed? I don't want to run KDE anymore - just Quanta. I'm going with Blackbox/Gnome....

Kdebase only if you'd like to run KDE directly (but I'm not 100% sure). Just do make uninstall, but don't delete the sources and test. You can always run make install again.

Well.... I already had them removed... but I have been able to do a make uninstall when I configure eg kdemultimedia again with the same options.
The HD on that machine isn't particularly large.....

Yes, when there are the same options it will work.
