Some of the programs I install are from source code, not RPM. If I decide that I do not like a program, what is the best way to uninstall? After compiling, there are files all over the place! I have hosed my system enough - time to try to do it right.
Also, a secondary question. Where can I find the best books, ebooks or whatever, that can teach me Linux and keep me out of trouble. You guys are great at bailing me out, but I would like a faster track on learning. Crash and burn is a little slow!
