How to Uninstall a BIND in YUM

By Peter Thomas

The Bind -- or Berkeley Internet Name Domain -- free Linux and Unix name server program provides information about domain names hosted on the system. If you don't host domains and your system doesn't need to provide IP address records about systems, you can safely uninstall Bind to free system resources. Uninstall bind with a single command on Linux computers with Yellowdog Updater Modified -- or YUM -- software.

Step 1

Log in to Linux and open a new terminal window.

Step 2

Type **sudo yum remove bind** then press **Enter**.

Step 3

Type the system's root password when prompted, and then press **Enter**.

Step 4

Press **Y** when asked to confirm the package removal. Bind will stop and uninstall from the system.
