Type 'info rpm" on the command line . This should give you the rpm options , the actual name of the package you install should show you what version it is. ie, # rpm -e kwifimanager-1.0.2-1.src.rpm this says to remove software package kwifimanager-1.0.2-1.src.rpm and 1.0.2-1 is the version number. Hope this was of some help.
