How would i go about upgrading software that I have manually compiled and installed via "make install"?

Side note: rpm -U = install and upgrade if appropriate, correct?

Normally I use yum but of course there are those exceptions

Cheers

Each software has one's install method. view the README or INSTALL file in tar ball.

I mean upgrading e.g. I install program X v1.5 via compile, then X v2 comes out - do I just compile and install?

How about UNINSTALLING?

I'm lost without a package manager :)
