uninstalling software installed manually

I have installed SystemC 2.2 on my computer by following the instructions on this link.
wrong link
right link

Mine is Ubuntu 10.10 (dont say no support for 10.10 upgrade to 12.04 because it does not work with my computer), I want to remove SystemC 2.2 and install SystemC 2.3 fresh for its support of TLM library.

So could someone please help me to remove SystemC 2.2 so that I can install SystemC 2.3 such that there is no conflict or any crazy problem because of the earlier older version when I write codes. Thanks.

Hi and welcome to LQ

In the build directory (where you extracted the source code and ran g++) please try running

sudo make uninstall

Thanks for your reply.

Here is a directory listing for updatedb for "systemc"

Can you tell me exactly which directory do i run that command.
Is it inside this directory /home/rkrara/systemc/systemc-2.2.0/objdir/

As far I remember it must be it.

You should run it in /home/rkrara/systemc/systemc-2.2.0, this directory contains the makefile.

Thanks Everyone.

It has been removed.
It was in /home/rkrara/systemc/systemc-2.2.0/objdir/
There in that directory I executed the command and it worked.
