I installed OpenCV. First downloaded .tar library, extracted it, then did some cmake-gui and created folder \release\ where I executed make and in the end sudo make install.

I just want to know that can I remove now without destroying the installation. OK .tar library will be removed, but what about extracted sources and release folder with compiled things. Can I remove them?
