Thanks to Peter Dalgaard and Ott Toomet for answering my question. I'd stick
with renaming the 1.4.1 R directories and files to have the old version run
for a while until I clean out any of my potentially broken R programs/scripts.
By the way, it does seem that building an RPM would be better for
uninstalling. I have a couple of questions in this regard. (This is getting
a bit off-topic, so please reply off the list.)
1. I'd like to get pointers as how to set up my own RPM build from R sources
(1.5.0 for now, later versions in future).
2. How would I handle installation/uninstallation of contributed packages?
Is it possible to build RPMs for them too?
Thanks a lot.
