.SH "More Severe Uninstalling"
Usually, the above instructions are sufficient\. That will remove
npm, but leave behind anything you\'ve installed\.
.
.P
If that doesn\'t work, or if you require more drastic measures,
continue reading\.
.
.P
This assumes that you installed node and npm in the default place\. If
you configured node with a different \fB\-\-prefix\fR, or installed npm with a
different prefix setting, then adjust the paths accordingly, replacing \fB/usr/local\fR with your install prefix\.
.
.P
rm \-rf /usr/local/{lib/node,lib/node/\.npm,bin,share/man}/npm*
.
.P
If you installed things \fIwith\fR npm, then your best bet is to uninstall
them with npm first, and then install them again once you have a
proper install\. This can help find any symlinks that are lying
around:
.
.P
ls \-laF /usr/local/{lib/node,lib/node/\.npm,bin,share/man} | grep npm
.
.P
Prior to version 0\.3, npm used shim files for executables and node
modules\. To track those down, you can do the following:
.
.P
find /usr/local/{lib/node,bin} \-exec grep \-l npm {} \\; ;
.
.P
(This is also in the README file\.)
