removing openssh RH9

I want to remove the installed openssh that RedHat 9 installs. I want to install cleanly a patched tar to enable chrooted users. I always run into problems because the patched tar is older than the new version that RH installs by default. I have tried to uninstall with no luck. I tried to install the older using such things as --oldpackage, -U, --force, etc. Nothing works. Where or what do I do to uninstall the daemon.

You can use the --nodeps option to uninstall the package but beware ... i've run into a few issues with the rpm's that are dependant on it. I usually do a "rpm -q -l openssh" to find out where the rpm installs files and try to match that with the tar package as to satisfy the previous dependancies. I keep a copy of the openssh rpm though incase you run into probems ..... Hope this helps.

I did that and it didn't cleanly install the new build. That is why I would like to remove it before I install the new patched version.
