How to completely remove any trace of programs in redhat through putty


I have been trying for quite some time very unsuccessfully to install a replication and distribution software called R1 I have gone back and forth with their support line and I got absolutely no where.

Basically i have been trying to install from a tar.Z file I had gunzipped it and untarred it and then there is an ./install command which i have been trying to use I kept trying and kept getting wierd errors and I eventually discovered that it was because xinetd was not install I intalled it but i got the same errors
however this process worked on some of the other servers so I want to try and completely eliminate any trace that I even tried to install the program so that perhaps the install will work is there any good way to do this
I no there is a remove programs interface in windows but i dont know if there is something similar in linux I have tried the uninstall but it still doesnt help

any suggestions?

You can check the install script to see where it places libraries and binaries and manually remove them. If the install process failed I imagine that is probably your best option?

If you are root, it probably doesn't matter who owns them. However, yes you can change ownership of any file (if you are root) using the chown command:
chown username:groupname filename

So, if the file were awesome.so and the user I want to own the file is root and the group was linux, I would type:
chown root:linux awesome.so

533 was probably a userID on their system. chown is the command for changing ownership.

Well thanks for the suggestions unfortunately this idea doesnt seem to be working anyway I think i deleted all of the files but that didnt help the install and I changed root to the owner of those files and it didnt help at all either their IT cant seem to solve the problem either so I guess I'm just going to have to abandon this project if anyone knows the R1 installation really really well that might help but besides that I'm giving up
