I am upgrading from kde1 to kde2.1 and it was recommended that
I get rid of all vistages of kde1 before installing kde2.1.

The question is: At the consol, what command do I give so that it will
search out all instances of kde1 package and uninstall them.

I was told to use "rpm -qa|grep kde`;do rpm -e $file;done" . That gives me
a > prompt but no action.

Any ideas?

Just try

#rpm -e kde

Assuming that kde is the name of the package.

That will erase the installed package. Then you should be able to install the kde2 package like usual.
