Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

After you install/remove an rpm, the rpm database may not be updated to show the installation/removal. To make certain that the database of installed rpm's is up to date, after installing/removing a package, run rpm --rebuilddb, then try the rpm -qi command.
I had used RedHat 7.2 and used to use gnorpm to manage rpms.
You need to be logged in as root in order to use this.
Another approach to take may be to login as root at the console
find / -iname *snort*
and manually remove all files returned.
Hope this helps.
I would assume then that `snort' has been removed from
your machine. If you're seeing it on user menus in your
window manager, then those entries may have to be re-
moved from the menu files manually. If you use gnome
then your menus should be somewhere in the directory
~/.gnome or perhaps ~/.gconf. I can't really remember
for sure and it may have changed by now, but look around
your home directory for anything like it.
I seem to remember tthat gnome menu filenames ended in the
extension `.menu' so perhaps doing a
find ~/ -iname *menu* would be useful
grep -irn "snort" ~/
Just be aware that `grep -irn "string" location' returns the names of files found in the directory and sub-directories of location in which
"string" was found. You may not necessarily want to delete these
entire files, but edit them and remove the lines containing the
entries in which "string" was found. As mossy cautioned, be careful
what you are removing!
