How to remove packages - wxPython

P: n/a
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
