Subject Re: [users@httpd] Removing / Uninstalling Apache 1.3
Date Thu, 12 Sep 2002 09:29:55 GMT
Hi James,

install AGAIN with checkinstall from
and then deinstall. Checkinstall can create Slackware and Debian 
packages as well as RPMs.

I like checkinstall very much with my Slackware system. No more chaos 
with installations from source!

Best regards,
Axel Siebenwirth
