    General Queries


    Compiling a few softwares that i want to install (e.g. krusader and kiosktool) gives me a lselinux not found error.
    What do i need to resolve it.

    Secondly, how do I uninstall a package that I instaled with "make install".
    "make clean" only removes binaries from the source code directory.

    Where can I find a menu editor for GNOME menu ?

    Also, The aiases that I set for myself in .bashrc in my home directory dont work from the run menu.
    Where else can I put them to make them work for all users.

    Any help on any of the above queries is welcome.
    Thanks.

    make
    make uninstall
    for rpms
    Code:

    1) Try a 'make uninstall' from the source directory.

    2) I *think* that you can do it by launching gnome-menu-edit (something resemblant of that) from a term/run window.

    3) Put them in /etc/bash/bashrc and they will be sourced by every interactive shell.

    I'm not sure as I don't have gnome installed.

    I just seem to remeber seeing something like gnome-menu when I did gnome<TAB> on a different box...

    Try an slocate gnome | grep menu?
