How to remove VirtualBox 3.1.8

今天启动 VirtualBox 时提示说有 3.2.2 版可用,于是在第一时间下载了 rpm 来安装。可是安装时提示一大堆的文件冲突,我按经验就先卸载老版本

yum remove VirtualBox

可是以前管用的命令,在卸载 3.1.8 版时不管用了,提示

No Match for argument: VirtualBox
No Packages marked for removal

大概 VirtualBox 改了 package name,惭愧,我也不会用 yum 来查看已安装的 package list。Google 了一会,这条命令倒是管用:

yum remove /usr/share/applications/virtualbox.desktop

于是见到了久违了的

Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit

Is this ok [y/N]:

卸载后安装 VirtualBox 3.2.2 倒很顺利,安装后我注意到 package name 是 VirtualBox-3.2,以后如要卸载它就可以用

yum remove VirtualBox-3.2

VirtualBox 3.2.2 首次被 Oracle rebrand,但我没注意到有什么其他改动。
