How was it installed? If it was with rpm, then you could try this:
rpm -e <package name>

uninstalls from source are not always available unless you used a tool like checkinstall

but, many sources now come with good make uninstall options
go find the source you used, do ./configure if you are using a newly untarred source, and then do make uninstall as root
