Cannot remove Freenx


All:

I'm a big fan of Freenx and have installed it on several machines over the last few months. I recently installed it on my home machine and ran into a problem. The installation went through without a errors, but when it was finished I did not have an encryption key to use with this installation.

My first thought was to reinstall, but yum (my preferred installer) told me the product was already installed. I then attempted to remove Freenx with RPM (rpm -e), but RPM errored out on this program and would not remove it.

How can I remove the program so that I can reinstall?

Help!

...Dale...

how are we supposed to know what "RPM errored" means??? just run "rpm -e freenx" and as long as rpm is working ok, it'll be removed.
