Uninstalling from a manual install
I am using Mandriva 2010 KDE 4.3
Until now I've only used the GUI package manager to install and uninstall programs (which is bad, I know).
But now I needed to do a manual install. I installed a program to the /proc directory (where the install manual said to).
Now I need to uninstall it.
Is there a way to quickly and efficiently uninstall and to be sure that I have removed all remnants from my system?

In many cases, you can "cd" to the install directory and issue make uninstall, if that doesn't work, there is probably no rule for uninstall in the makefile (check the README and INSTALL files for more info).
It'll be up to you to make sure that you remove any orphaned or stray files on your system if there are no uninstall rules.

It didn't come from an uncompiled source.
The installation was a shell script that unpacked and installed everything.
It's Matlab version R2008B if that makes any difference.
I checked and there is no obvious uninstall script.
