make install


I'm assuming that if i compile from source and do "make install", there is no real way of removing the files (not without knowing exactly what's installed and where)..

thanks

IF you keep the program source, usually you can do this...........

Code:
make uninstall

If the makefile supports it, you could try 'make uninstall' or use checkinstall to create rpm's.
