Hallo Marie-Noelle

according to CMake documentation there is a file called
install_manifest.txt which lists all installed files. so you can do a

xargs rm < install_manifest.txt

and all those files will be removed. Please keep in mind that you may
remove files that were installed by other packages. You can check this
with 'rpm -qf filename' which reports the package the file belongs to.
So you have to go over the list in the install_manfiest file and get a
list of packages which you can reinstall to get a clean installation.
This is nothing you should do by hand but write a simple script for this.

After this you can install digikam 1.9 from repo as usual.
