Uninstall Netscape


Okay...

So now I want to uninstall Netscape. Since I didn't use RPM, I'm guessing I also can't use 'RPM -e -allmatches Netscape' to uninstall it.

Is it as simple as deleting the folder and it's contents?

Probably. How did you install it? Did you install from source and do "make install"? If so then do "make uninstall" in the source dir. Otherwise, if it runs from a particular directory it's probably as simple as removing that, although if you do "find / -name \*etscape\*" then that'll find any other directories for you. If there are none, then you're fine.

Does Red Hat have a 'Windows-like Registry'?

Is it as simple as getting rid of the Netscape directory? Does Red Hat have a registry or anything similar?
