This question already has an answer here:

It's been a while since I started using (ubuntu) linux as my desktop, and I have a question about uninstalling software outside the scope of the package manager.

Most linux or unix distribution comes with a package manager and its repository, but not all software can I find in the repository. For example, I cannot install vmware linux virsion with apt, yum, emerge, or whatsoever; it comes with a shellscript installer.

In such cases, in order to uninstall, is the only way possible simply tracking the whole installation script and undo whatever was done? I believe there must be some more sensible way, but I couldn't find any.
