Every file installed through *.rpm packages can be seen with
	rpm -qal
Redirect that output  to a file, examine, and remove file by file.

You can also remove package-by-package. The list of installed
packages is
	rpm -qa
Again redirect that output to a file, examine, and remove package by package using
	rpm -q PKG
for each PKG listed.
