How to remove packages - wxPython

Linux kernel 2.6.9
Slackware 10
Python version 2.3.4
wxPython version 2.4.2.4

I compiled and installed wxPython.

There is no uninstall script that I can find for the py components. The
library component has a make uninstall.

What is the proper way to uninstall packages? I searched everywhere, but
there seems to be no clearcut explanation.

Can I just remove the site-package directories it created? Or is there a
central config file for python?

Thx.

Generally speaking, just removing the subfolder(s) from site-packages
will completely remove an extension. Some few extensions will also
create a .pth file in the site-packages folder, so check for that
as well. No doubt there are exceptions, but I believe this will
cover 95% of the cases.

That's what I thought. Just wanted to be sure. I think this program actually
created two separate site-packages folder, wxPython and wx. I need to check
the install script and see what was doing.

Thx

Hi all, We've been having a discussion over on the wxPython-users mailing list about how to deal with multiple versions of wxPython. During the discussion it came up that this isn't a problem faced only by wxPython, but would have to be dealt with by virtually all packages. The root of the problem is what to do when you install a new version of wxPython, and want to be able to keep using the old one. This question comes up frequently...

Hello wxPythoneers. I have a problem with a dialog box derived from wxFrame which has a wxComboBox as main element. Depending on the entry selected from the ComboBox, the dialog box will be populated with a number of controls.

This is because the event function for the combobox populates the sizer for the window with...

See: http://www.wxpython.org/quotes.php. especially: "wxPython is the best and most mature cross-platform GUI toolkit, given a number of constraints. The only reason wxPython isn't the standard Python GUI toolkit is that Tkinter was there first." - Guido van Rossum Guess, that answers my question, but isn't "Tkinter was there first" a very bad answer? :) It is kinda ugly too, so I wonder why it can't be replaced? Or maybe another GUI...

I'm trying to install wxPython 2.5.3.1 using Python 2.3.2 on a Fedora 2 machine.

At the moment I'm doing most of my stuff on a Mac, but I've been considering also getting a Windows laptop. One of the reasons is that I've found it very difficult to get certain Python related things running on the Mac; for example, if one wants to use the most up-to-date Python on the mac, rather than the one installed by Apple, things can get a bit hairy, and then if one wants to go PyQT/wxPy/etc, it can get even worse with
