Uninstall rpm webstatic package from Centos

If you are trying to uninstall a RPM package from your OS, you first need to find out the package name.

To find out the package name you would need to run:

 rpm -qa 

This command will display a list of packages installed on your OS.

Once, you have found the package name in-order to remove it execute this command.

 rpm -e [package_name] 

example: To remove webtatic package

 rpm -e webtatic-release-6-9.noarch 

If you want to find out whether a package is installed run this command:

 yum list installed [package_name] 

example: I want to find out whether webstatic is installed

 yum list installed webtatic-release-6-9.noarch
