uninstalling compiled software

Hi,
I've got a problem with some piece of software, i compiled on myself because there was no arch package for that. Now i found an Arch package and i want to uninstall the old piece of software because it conflicts with the package. So, is there any way to uninstall software you compiled before?

Hope you can help me

make uninstall, usually.

Did you check the app's README?

Re: uninstalling compiled software

you can also force the install so pacman ignores the conflicts,

# pacman -Sf package

arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy

Re: uninstalling compiled software

Next time install custom software to /usr/local... Or just make a pkgbuild and submit it to AUR.

Re: uninstalling compiled software

oops, should've mentioned abs like i3839 did,

abs(arch build system) is the way you make arch packages wich you can install/uninstall using pacman, check out the wiki for more details on this, it's pretty easy and you can also search aur(arch user repository) for pkgbuilds,


arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy
