Hi,

something like "rpm --remove" ... man rpm or man urpmi should highlight you

I figured out that it was urpme already but thanks anyway. As a sidenote, rpm -e(it's -e not -remove) didn't work for me.

I've had the same thing happen--I would think rpm would work on any packages, installed via rpm or via urpmi, but sometimes it seems only urpme will uninstall packages originally installed by urpmi....
