How Do I Uninstall a Linux Software Package?
If you're short on disk space, use RPM to uninstall one or more packages. Uninstalling is even easier than installing, because you need to know only the package name, not the name of the original package file. Here's how to remove the dogfood package: rpm -e dogfood
RPM will tell you if the removal of the package will cause problems for other installed packages. If it will, you may see a message like this:
removing these packages would break dependencies:
dogfood is needed by fido-1.0-1
If you're sure you know what you're doing, you can add the --nodeps flag, and RPM will skip the dependency checks and uninstall the package anyway.
