How do you uninstall wine?
I just installed Linux this weekend and I ordered the Fedora Linux 3.0 Bible but it hasn't arrived yet. Therefore, I still have a basic question. How do you uninstall a program. I installed wine and now I want to uninstall it as I am going to buy CrossOver. How do you uninstall a program that was installed by double clicking on a .rpm

If you're going to install CrossOver, you do not neccesarily need to remove WINE; they'll get installed as separate programs. If you still want to remove WINE (for whatever reason) you can, however.
I don't know how you would go about uninstalling it from the GUI (meaning just clicking something) in Fedora, but you can uninstall an RPM from the command-line (in a terminal window) like this:
rpm -e packagename
You will also need to be logged in as root to uninstall RPMs, so before you try the rpm command, type su followed by your root (administrator) password.Registered Linux user #270181
