need to remove a sloppy install (wine)


erm yeah............ well i just installed wine (slackware 9.1, 2.4.22 kernel) and i messed it up pretty good. well i read the readme's and i know how to install it right this time, thats not what i need help with. its all the files that ended up in /usr/bin /usr/lib and /usr/doc that i need to get rid of. can anyone supply me with a shell script for removing them or at least a list of the files that are there (from package Wine-20040309-i686-S9.tar) so i can write one myself?
thanks in advance

ergh..... once again.... i solve my own friggin problems after i post here... well for anyone with my problem (i doubt it), just remove the /usr/lib/wine and /usr/doc/Wine-xxxxxxx dirs, and then check the original package for the /usr/bin files and remove them, which wont be so tedious if you change into the usr/bin dir (from the package not /usr/bin) and do ls>~/files and just modifiy that a little ("rm " in front of the file names....) and there you have your shell script.... (heh wouldnt it be a kick in the balls if i looked back and found an uninstaller?)

If you compiled it from source you could of just cd'd to the directory an type make uninstall

installed from rpm "rpm -e wine"

when you do it the way you did just screws it up even more

Uninstall Wine

When I type rpm -e wine I get

[root@localhost Downloads]# rpm -e wine | more
error reading information on service wine: No such file or directory
error: %preun(wine-20040309-1rh73winehq) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

If I try to reinstall the same or another package it says

[root@localhost Downloads]# rpm -ivh wine-0*.rpm
warning: wine-0.20040321-1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID b8693f2c
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package wine-20040309-1rh73winehq (which is newer than wine-0.20040321-1) is already installed
file /etc/wine/system.reg from install of wine-0.20040321-1 conflicts with file from package wine-20040309-1rh73winehq
file /etc/wine/user.reg from install of wine-0.20040321-1 conflicts with file from package wine-20040309-1rh73winehq
... etc

I have not deleted any files from the wine install. Yet it will still not let me uninstall.
Any suggestions?

yeh, well the way I installed it, i had just copied files from one place to another.....so deleting it didnt screw up anything.... and if you really care, it was a slackware package so after that I just typed installpkg "pkgname"
