how to uninstall beagle in firefox?


suse 10.1 came with beagle already installed in firefox. i never used that application and turned it off at once since i didn't find out how to uninstall it. during a backup today i suddenly found that beagle, a tiny unused application, had accumulated 20000+ files that were of no use for me. they occupated 400mb, makes 1% of my small hdd of 40gb. how do i delete the application?

regards

'rpm --test -e `rpm --qf="%{name}\n" -qa|grep beagle`' or 'rpm --test -e `grep beagle /var/log/rpmpkgs` or use your favourite package management interface.

Oops. Now that I've read the post again it appears that you are correct.

of course, yast worked... forgot about that. of those shell commands only one triggered a reaction -
Code:
rpm -test -e 'grep beagle /var/log/rpmpkgs
error: package grep beagle /var/log/rpmpkgs
rpm -test -e grep is not installed
error: package /var/log/rpmpkgs is not installed
thank you very much!

best regards
