Re: [SOLVED]How to uninstall pkgbuild

pacman -R <pkgname>

Use the "man pacman" page for more information, of even "pacman --help"

Re: [SOLVED]How to uninstall pkgbuild

A PKGBUILD is just a set of instructions for makepkg to build an installable package, it's not installable itself. If you've built a package with makepkg and installed it with "pacman -U somepkg.pkg.tar.gz", you should be able to remove it with "pacman -Rsn somepkg", replacing "somepkg" with whatever the name was.

If that doesn't help, you'll need to explain what you're trying to do because your question doesn't make any sense.
