To remove a package or port, first you need to find the name of the package. For instance if you want to remove kopete, to find out its full name, you will type:
+
[[category:orphan]]
 
+
# pkg_info | grep kopete
+
kdenetwork-kopete-0.11_1 KDE multi-protocol instant messenger (IM)
+
 
+
Then to uninstall the package, type as root:
+
 
+
# pkg_delete kdenetwork-kopete-0.11_1
+
 
+
If you installed from the ports, you can also uninstall going to the specific port directory and you can uninstall from there:
+
 
+
# cd /usr/ports/net-im/kopete
+
# make deinstall
+
