Uninstall Application


I've installed OpenOffice 1.0 on my RedHat system. There is a more current OpenOffice version available but it recommends uninstalling any previous versions prior to installing the new version. I can't seem to find a specific uninstall application so I was wondering if there is a proper way to remove it.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

rpm package management

well... i'm not a red hat user but as long as you used rpm(red hat package manager) to install it all you should have to do is type:
rpm -e name_of_package
but instead of typing name_of_package type the name of the package you want to remove. this is definately as-is info as i'm not a redhatter but it should send you in the right direction and no one else seems to be chirping up. good luck.

Yes, you have to use that command. But if you want to remove programs that you installed in the Redhat Instalatiion. You may want to remove them using redhat-config-packages
