7 Uninstalling Advanced Server : 7.1 Uninstalling an RPM Package

Include the -e option when invoking the rpm command to remove an installed package; the command syntax is:
Where package_name is the name of the package that you would like to remove.
You can use the yum remove command to remove a package installed by yum. To remove a package, open a terminal window, assume superuser privileges, and enter the command:
yum remove package_name
Where package_name is the name of the package that you would like to remove.
Note: yum and RPM will not remove a package that is required by another package. If you attempt to remove a package that satisfies a package dependency, yum or RPM will provide a warning.
