I did my first installation of Linux with Fedora 4 on my laptop and updated all the packages online.
In the online update preferences i checked the box for make update rollbacks possible.
i guess that's why i have always new and older versions of packages installed on my laptop
such as kdebase, openoffice.org-wrtiter and so on...
how can i remove the older versions of these packages.
do i have to write for each yum remove package name, if yes how can i specify the version?
another question is, how can i install packages or applications when they are not in .rpm format
such as .tar.gz or .tar.bz2
