Hello there,

I installed Maven (by building the source) awhile ago on my OS X Leopard machine.

When I check version information, this is the feedback, I receive:

When I check where its located, this is what is outputted:


However, I recently installed the 2.10 binary (via zip extension) on my machine and set a
MAVEN_HOME global system environmental variable and also appended it to my PATH in .bash_profile.
When I run the $MAVEN_HOME/bin/mvn script from the command line, this is what is outputted:

How do I uninstall / override the Maven 2.0.6 version and replace it with Maven 2.1.0 (which is set to my $MAVEN_HOME)?
This is what my ~/.bash_profile config looks like:

Happy programming,

Unnsse

Okay, I got the Apache Maven 2.1.0 working as the correct one by placing $MAVEN_HOME before /usr/bin in my PATH as follows:
The thing I dislike about this approach is that the previous Maven (2.0.6) version still exists on my machine.

Prior to Maven 2.1.0, I had installed the 2.0.6 version by downloading the tar.gz (tarball) and then building Maven 2.0.6 by scratch which placed the mvn script inside my /usr/bin directory.

Is there a way to truly un-install / wipe the previous mvn (2.06) version from my system?

Many, many thanks!

A layman's guess would be:

1.) Remove the directory that contains maven 2.0.6
2.) Remove the /usr/bin/mvn
