unclean uninstall --> how to make clean (wine)


I'd greatly appreciate if anyone could help me out with this problem. I've been finding similar threads but not anything that really answers my question.

I tried to install wine from source (20041019). I had some problems and attempted to uninstall with "make uninstall". That seemingly worked fine. I then noticed that I had 20040714 installed all along (or at least I think I had). I uninstalled that with dpkg --remove. And now I seem to be stuck with an unclean uninstall. When I write "wine", I get the following message

Code:
bash: /usr/bin/wine: No such file or directory
instead of the more familiar

Code:
bash: asd: command not found

Is there a way to make a proper uninstall? Who is telling bash to look in /usr/bin when I just write wine and have everything seemingly uninstalled?

Thanks a lot.

the best way to remove all traces of wine after u uninstall is to

-->#locate wine > wine.txt
open wine.txt
and see all the directories where wine is like /etc/wine , /usr/lib/wine,/usr/share/wine-c (or) what ever .. just rename them Do Not delete.. once u get wine working u can delete them.....
