removing xawtv pkgtool doesn´t see it, how else can I remove it?


I recently installed xawtv 3.88 using make make install, and have been trying to figure out how I uninstall it so I can install xawtvdecode pkgtool doesn´t see xawtv, does it only see packages from the cd, or packages that were installed using pgktool?

What are my other options for getting rid of xawtv so I can install the new?
