    How did you install it? What distro is it on?

    If you installed from the source, go back to the build directory and do:

    make uninstall

    If you installed through yum, at the command prompt (as root) do:

    yum uninstall rsync

    If you have an RPM system, you can always do this:

    rpm -q rsync
    or
    rpm -qa|grep rsync

    to find the full name of the package, then do (as root):

    rpm -e <rsync-package-name>

    I installed it as a regular user, ./configure, make install...
    I've tried make uninstall with no luck...
    Code:
    -bash-3.00$ make uninstall
    make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall'.  Stop.
    -bash-3.00$

    Then I'm sorry to say you'll have to read through the makefile to find out what files get copied where when you do a 'make install', then you'll be able to go to each of the installed files and uninstall by hand. To do this, you imight have to learn a little about makefiles. Sorry.
