Hey guys, me again Just a quick question. I love Linux so I installed X11 and it runs fine. I installed Fink as well and used it to install the bundle-gnome package. It didn't end up running kept giving errors, so I used fink and told it to remove the package, but it only removed that one and not all the other parts of gnome it had to download as well. What I want to know is how do I uninstall something that I've put on like that? And second it put everying in the sw directory. When I go in there it looks like a normal unix / directory. I shut down my PC last night and turned it on just now and now the sw directory is gone. So I dunno what the heck, I'm confused with how this all works! Any tips? Thanks!
QUOTE Thanks
