I have installed GHC 7.x on FreeBSD, (installed with binary distribution, not pkg_add) but I have to downgrade it to 6.x. How can I uninstall it? Or is there general method to uninstall program on unix-like from OS?

If you've installed a package using ports, then you can uninstall it using the command pkd_delete(1), otherwise you should remove files manually.

I agree there's no other way than manual removing :( – Eonil Mar 4 '11 at 2:23
