If you have yum,
Code:
yum remove gnome-games
otherwise,
Code:
rpm -e gnome-games

Package not install

i've try

rpm -e gnome-games

but it said "Error: Package gnome-games is not installed"

this make me really confiuse.. because if the package realy have been uninstall (maybe because i;ve done it using add/remove program) ... why i still can use and play all that game?..

rpm -qa | grep 'games' or rpm -qa | grep 'gnome-game'
to have a look at what the exact name of the package

if you know what the executable programs run, for example, /usr/bin/mine, use:
rpm -qf /usr/bin/mine
to see whick package it belongs to

and then remove that package
