    Hello and Welcome.
    You can try the rpm command.
    Code:
    rpm -e openldap

    thank you for the reply.
    I've tried it and it gives me the "magic" error :
    error: "openldap" specifies multiple packages

    I don't think you can uninstall just one, but you can uninstall both with --allmatches flag
