If you want to remove the package, type
rpm -e packagename

man rpm
Read away. Seriously. I know that the man pages are horribly painful to read for those of us that are new to Linux and computing with control but the sooner you learn to decipher the information that is available, the sooner Linux will reward your effort.

rpm -e name_of_rpm
will remove an installed rpm.
rpm -qa | grep name_of_rpm
will query the installed rpm database and return all references to name_of_rpm. Then you can rpm -e the one that you want to get rid of.

[@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep k3b

Now I could rpm -e k3b-0.11.17-1 and it will be erased. Notice that I did not include .rpm at the end, it is not required. That seems to be a fairly common mistake the first few times someone does this.

As an interesting side note, when you are erasing old kernels that you no longer need to boot, the kernel reference is also removed from the grub logon screen.

I type way too slowly. Or is it the verbosity?
