Uninstalling and reinstalling Intel XE 2013

I installed a non-commercial version of Intel XE 2013 and realise that I wanted to change the installation directory. I realise that for Intel XE 2013 does not have an uninstall script (install-dir/bin/ like previous version.

A simple removal of the intel directory does not allow me to have a good clean installation like choosing installation directory.It is likely due to the presence of rpm information still remaining in the rpm database.

To solve the issue, I use the command 

# for i in `rpm -qa | grep intel` ; do rpm -e $i ; done

You may need to run the command 2-3 times to ensure all the dependencies and intel packages are totally cleaned up
