How do I Uninstall Firefox, Jre, jdk, Mozilla


How do I go about unstalling the following:

1. Previous versions of Mozilla;

2. Previous versions of jre and jdk;

Also, unstalling and reinstalling Firefox 1.0.

If appropriate, please give the rpm commands.

My Current Package includes:

Much thanks. Tj

man rpm
or the short version.. use the '-e' switch

search for install packages like so...

rpm -qa | grep search_keyword
so basically....

// what the java package called ?
rpm -qa | grep java
rpm -qa | grep jre
rpm -qa | grep jdk

rpm -e (rpm package to remove { not including version numbers})
