I think , I screwed up , now what?


Plain and simple : I used konstruct(A script for dl-ing and installing the entire KDE-stuff in one haul) but forgot a couple of things , before I gave it the green light:
1- I forgot to configure it , so it wouldn't install QT3.2.1 (I just installed that manually) and now it's happily installing it again...
2- Probably more of a problem : It's installing everything in a subdirectory of /root. That's NOT where I want the entire KDE-mess located.

Now I figured , I'd just let it do its jig and then uninstall the entire kaboosh afterwards , but frankly speaking ; I don't have a friggin' notion how to do that.
I'm told , that simply deleting the files would suffice , but this seems a little unrealistic to me , since there'll be all kinds of simlinks and stuff like that created during install.
How do I get rid of them?

You could use:
rpm -ql packagename
to list the files installed by packagename but it is just as easy to:
rpm -e packagename --nodeps

That would work on a RPM-based distro , but not on Vector .

But thanks anyway ; It might hint me to what commands to look for.

If its Vector specific it is somewhat hard to help you out. I might have been living in a hole the last 3 or 4 years but I have not heard about Vector before.
Isnt there a Vector forum or something where you have a better shot at getting a correct answer to this?

Yes , there is , and I got it fixed already ; "make" never finished(Spitted out some errors , I still have to puzzle out) , so I could suffice with deleting the crap.

And for your information ; Vector is a somewhat more "userfriendly" flavour of Slackware , without going over the top in "shielding the noob from the mechanics" like the "Big Ones"(SuSE , Mandrake , RedHat) do.
Best Distro , I tried so far. (And I'm coming from SuSE....)
