Include the -e option on the rpm command to remove installed packages; the command syntax is:
rpm -e package_name [package_name…]
Where package_name is the name of the package that you would like to remove. The package name is the name of the .rpm file used when installing the package, with the version number and file extension (.rpm) removed; for example, the command:
rpm -i ppas94-9.4.x x.rhel6.rpm
To instruct rpm to remove multiple packages, provide a list of packages you wish to remove when invoking the command.
