WineX -- A wonder at uninstalling!
I wanted to play my windows games (specifically Jedi Knight: Outcast) on Linux so I decided to check out this program I heard about called 'WineX'. After visiting their site i decided that the free way was the way to go but since i'm new to Linux I decided to look for an RPM. I finally found this site: http://www003.portalis.it/115/ and downloaded their RPM. I double clicked on it and the RPM installer appeared. It asked no questions and just ran through some progress bars! After this I could not find the installation so I decided to reinstall WineX through the source on the WineX site. And In order to do this I was pretty sure I needed to uninstall WineX so this is what I did:
I started console and did $rpm -i winex....
It said 'package already installed'
So then i did $rpm -e winex..... to uninstall it and this is the message i got:
'No such package installed'
After this I was stunned. What can I do?
