Yes, use rpm on an rpm based system unless you are knowlegeable to know
where things are going to go and how to fix them.  You might have a long
task to get rid of the old versions depending on how many you tried and how
you put them in.  How many did you try?  How did you install them? 

For all of your rpm info:
man rpm
