Question Uninstalling software?


Is there an easy way to uninstall software? I installed Netscape 7, decided I don't need it, and don't even know where to start trying to remove it.

I'm using Red HAt 8.

Thanks!

If you installed using the netscape-installer script, then you can simply "rm -rf" the directory that you installed to. If you managed to get it in RPM format, you can "rpm -e" the package.
