I just installed Berkeley DB 4.2 on my Ubuntu following the guide in below url.

I realized, I have installed wrong version of Berkeley DB and I want to uninstall it. How do I do that?

I am new to linux.

I think I'm right in saying if you go to the source directory (ie. the place you ran "make docdir=blahblah install") and run
make uninstall
then it should uninstall.

Also, if you're using Ubuntu, there's an easier way to install than compiling from source - you can go to "System>Administration>Synaptic Package Manager" and install packages like that
