As far as I know SLED10 still uses rpm for packages. So some of the  
following commands might work for you:

To find all packages with the word "myth" in the name of the package:
rpm -qa | grep -i myth

Not needed to remove a package, but useful to know to see all files  
belonging to a package <packagename>:
rpm -ql <packagename>

For each mythtv <packagename> found with the previous command:
rpm -e <packagename>
