say i dloaded some source code and ran ./configure && make && make install to build/compile the app. If the app contained some drivers, how would I remove them?

locate driver_foo.o;

rm /path/to driver.o ??

Man, I've definately borked this time. But it's fun though :lol: Never given this much control under doze

The app contained kernel drivers?

They'd be in:
Code:
/lib/modules/kernel-2.6.10yadayada/kernel/drivers/XXXXX

aha. I've located all of the drivers with the locate command.
I'm gonna [run as root]
Code:
find / -iname foo -ok rm '{}'  \;


This would remove all instances of foo including the drivers. The -ok is for confirmation from the terminal.[/code]

that looks like an incredibly dangerous command to run as root... ;)
