I am setting up a RHEL 6.X server to house my RabbitMQ test environment. I need to install Erlange 16 or higher to work correctly with the latest version of RabbitMQ (3.6.x I believe). However, I currently have Erlang 14 on the system. I tried to remove it via yum however yum is saying it is not installed.
yum remove erlang
However when I run
$ erl -v
I get the following
Erlang R14B04 (erts-5.8.5) [source] [64-bit] [rq:1] [async-threads:0] [kernel-poll:false] Eshell V5.8.5 (abort with ^G)
And there exists a erlang directory
With the following sub directories
bin erts-5.8.5 lib man releases usr
How should I go about uninstalling this version of Erlang so I can install a new version? One peice of information that may be helpful. After the first successful install of the old version I actually did run yum remove and it appeared to work. However when I then tried to install the newer version it was stating the conflicts and I then found the aforementioned directory.
