remove? You'll need to clarify what you mean... typically you would do this by:
Code:
yum erase 'packagename'

the remove command was successful. i think it is synonymous with erase.

Try "yum provides the_executable_file_of_the_prog_that_still_runs".

It's possible that the package you installed and removed pulled in other packages as dependencies, one of which contains the majority of the actual program. Removing the top-level package wouldn't remove the dependencies.
