Hi Everybody ...
i am very beginner in Linux
i just install my RH9 only before a couple months
once i was trying to install KDE Bluetooth .. and it claims that i should update the Bluez Module to a newer Version ..

well , i download a new Bluez files in a .gz format ..i extract them all and install them as described in the accompanying 'INSTALL' file ...


the KDEBluetooth didnt work .. not only this ...
a problem happened

each time i log on to my RedHat Linux .. too many errors appear on the Shell while Linux is Loading drivers for Bluez

errors like "Can't load module .."

i don't want KDEBluetooth anymore . i gave up :( all i want now is to restore my previous Version of Bluez ... i cant find it in "Add/Remove Packages"


Thanx in advance

Generally speaking when you install an application from source on Linux using make you can also uninstall it by going to the directory where you installed from (the location of the Makefile) and issuing "make uninstall". Again this is generalization it is quite possible that the Makfile you are using does not have an uninstall target.

As a side note, you'll get better Bluetooth support if you ugprade to a more recent distro like FC4, Suse 10, etc.

I don't believe so. It /might/ be possible to download the archive again, extract and issue 'make uninstall'.
