Removing Xawtv but not there???

I cant seemt o remove Xawtv:

[root@localhost adam]# rpm xawtv -evv
D: opening db environment /var/lib/rpm/Packages joinenv
D: opening db index /var/lib/rpm/Packages rdonly mode=0x0
D: locked db index /var/lib/rpm/Packages
D: opening db index /var/lib/rpm/Name rdonly mode=0x0
error: package xawtv is not installed
D: closed db index /var/lib/rpm/Name
D: closed db index /var/lib/rpm/Packages
D: closed db environment /var/lib/rpm/Packages
[root@localhost adam]#

It was installed (when I installed RH Linux)) but I didnt realise this, so I downloaded it from the net and went to install it not realising it was already there. After I realised I un installed it but when I type xawtv at the command line it still runs...???? I am assuming that at least some of the program is still there. This has been causing LOTs of problems trying to configure it!

Any ideas?

you need to be the root user to install packages and uninstall them. if you are already the root check if there are stray rpm processes running in the system using

ps aux | grep rpm

and if not you might have encountered a rpm bug with redh 8 and 9

check for a fix
