Uninstall without make uninstall
 
I installed Python-2.3.tgz and now i want to uninstall it (becuase i've realized i should have updated with a rpm) so i type 'make uninstall' in the source directory but i get an error

make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall'. Stop.

what do i do now?

Will i have to manually delete the everything it installed, if so how do i find out where everything is?

Thanks for your help

If the source directory is still intact there may be an install log you can use to locate the various files, but I would just install the RPM. Chances are it will put everything in the same places as the source kit.

or you can look into the program called:
CheckInstall

Are you root?

I know I've thought there wasn't a make uninstall before, but it turned out I wasn't root when I tried it, so I got an error.
