uninstall from src if no make uninstall


hi all

i installed ffmpeg from src on my devserver
but i want to try the rpm version
i tried make uninstall but it gives me this error message
make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall'. Stop.

is there any way for me to uninstall this cleanly before installing from rpm?

thanks
dave

go through and find everything it installed and remove it by hand. you should be making packages for this ( and other - such as updating your rpm database) reason. to get you started, here is what came with my ffmpeg ( don't know how similar yours will be depending on version, options, etc...):
