Question Unistalling tarballs


Hi

I am using slackware8.0 distro. I use to install the packages using
tarballs. How do I unistall the packages? Just deleting the installation folder will be a perfect uninstallation? How do I make perfect uninstall. Is there any utility to install tarballs and uninstall as well?

thanks,

With most of the tar balls containing sourcecode,there will be an uninstall option.so just go to the untarred directory(from which you installed it) and run 'make uninstall'

also,deleting those directories may not make a complate uninstall since they may have edited many other files as well.
edit-checkout http://asic-linux.com.mx/~izto/checkinstall/index.php .this is a program with which you can unistall almost all the installed programs.(read the note at the end of this page(link) about slackware 8.)
