I installed python 2.6.6, I already had python which is lower version 2.4 by default. Now I want to remove the python 2.6.6 ? There is no uninstall target and remove procedures from the internet.

I google it out, but nor results found for the OEL 5.4,

Please help me.

Search all the folders and executable related to python 2.6.6. do an - "rm -rf <files/folder>" for the files and folders. That'll do –  Joddy Dec 20 '12 at 9:46
    
yeah done with a new prefix and deleted all those files. And also reinstalled the old version from yum which is by default. –  Dextor Dec 24 '12 at 11:42
    
Yeah my issue solved now, by installing the python in a prefix, I found which files to be deleted, next I deleted those files from the file-system, And I got command not found when executing python command in terminal, so to avoid any further issues to come, I re-installed the python which is in my yum list. Thank you guys. –  Dextor Jan 9 '13 at 7:07

Compile python 2.6.6 again inside your home folder (with prefix flag) and look at the output. Then, delete the same files that are placed in the system folder.
