thank you Mr Bait
but that removes a .rpm
not a binary install

Binaries are installed with

/.configure
make
make install

rpm on the other hand are
rpm -Uvh ( ivh) ........etc

some one else has already answered the post
It is

cd to the directory whare the install was made

type
make uninstall


thank you tho

Hmm, well just to correct --

./configure
make
make install

is to create a binary from source.

rpm -Uvh whatever

is to install a precompiled binary
so when you asked how to remove a binary, we thought you meant a precompiled binary.
