you need to use the rpm command
Code:
rpm -qa
will print all the rpm packages installed in your system.
if you know the name of the package you can remove it with
Code:
rpm -e <packagename>
by using something like:
Code:
rpm -qa |grep <pattern>
you can filter out the packages displayed according to a pattern.
