Linux.

1) Why there is no target 'uninstall' in Makefile (generated by ./configure)?
2) How to uninstall locally installed ruby?

I just compiled and locally installed version 1.9 and want to roll back to 1.8

Thanks!

Artem

Pass.

Assuming you have the original source tree, you could do:

make -n install > ./somefile

And edit "somefile": s/cp|install/rm -fr/g -- as apropos, and then
run the file through your shell.

Hmm. I'd prefer there was better way.

But thanks!
