    You can use
    rpm -e
    to erase any package from Redhat/Fedora.
    To list the packages installed on your machine use
    rpm -qa | more
    If you want to remove all mysql packages then use

    rpm -qa | grep mysql
    Now use rpm -e to remove the packages.

    Thanxxxxx 4 your kind information!!

    by the way can u help me out frm another problem..the problem is I am Using JRE version "1.6.0_01".when i am going 2 run limewire in my laptop it shows
    Something went wrong with LimeWire.
    Maybe you're using the wrong version of Java?
    (LimeWire is tested against and works best with with Sun's JRE, Java 1.6+)
    The version of Java in your PATH is:
    java version "1.6.0_01"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_01-b06)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_01-b06, mixed mode, sharing)
    then i installed JRE version jre-6u13-linux-i586.rpm.....then gain it shows the same.i could nt find JRE 1.6+ anywhere.
