    Uninstall NASM .99?


    I was wondering how to uninstall NASM .99 so that I could install NASM .98 because I was told that the version that I am usin (.99) is broken because of an error that I got while trying to install Zsnes. Thanks for your help.

    EDIT:cannot use the package manager (no internet connection)

    You should still be able to use rpm to uninstall the
    program, and if you have the rpm file of the version
    you want, likewise you can install from disk without
    an internet connection.

    The version I am trying to install is an rpm and it wont let me install over the .99 version that is installed. So can you just tell me how to uninstall .99?

    I believe it's rpm -e <package name>

    rpm(8): RPM Package Manager - Linux man page

    Did you mean rpm -e to install the one that I have over the existing one? Or to remove the existing one, because I am pretty sure that the one I have wasnt an rpm.

    rpm -e will uninstall the package you name.
    If it wasn't originally installed by rpm, just delete
    the executable file. I'm not sure if it is in /usr/bin
    or where ever.
