    welcome to the forum

    > uninstall....bin

    well: goto the directory where it got installed, and
    delete it (rm).

    > /usr/bin/Soft

    put the .bin file there & execute it

    > default directory

    most people use /usr/local

    > .rpm vs .bin

    .rpm is a redhat install file; the last .bin I looked
    at--GoogleEarth--is a shell script.

    /usr/bin/ is not supposed to contain any directories/folders. Take a look at the FHS for more details on where files should be placed on a Linux system.

    Thanks

    Thanks a lot for this information and I need to ask that when we install we use ./configure and use make to install and while uninstallling should we do that

    Hii vbalaviswanathan,
    You dont have to ./configure and make install for unwise / uninstalling packages/softwares. Instead you can uninstall the same way you installed from source, provided you should be under same installed directory by using:

    Code:
    #make uninstall
    Or you can pick your package from Yast and just by simply unchecking and updating it you can uninstall those packages.
    Sometimes it may through some dependencies error that means those packages which you are trying to uninstall are depended on some other packages too. But though if you're sure you know what you're doing go ahead.
    Or i guess another option is yum if you have installed it:-
    Code
    #yum remove <name of software>
