How to Find and Uninstall a Package Using RPM

Today I needed to be able to find a package and uninstall the package.  HowToForge saved the day with a great forum post

To find packages:


rpm -qa | grep -i webmin

To unistall the package:


rpm -e <package name>

If you need to uninstall more than one package at a time


rpm -e <package name> <package name> <package name>
