Uninstalling Vendor Software

Hi admins,

thanks for community
i have installed a software ( it's a specific soft from a specific vendor : i mean it is not a SUN product ). the install was trough a .tar.gz file and with an "install" executable ( so the command was simply #./install )
my pain now is how to uninstall it from solaris ( i dont find no "uninstall" script or binary in the install directory ).


please help


Best regards all

If it's a binary install application, you might be better off contacting the vendor and asking for the directory list of all the pieces and parts of the software specific to their product.

aie aie
it seems that theire is no solution for this!...if it is vendor specific than admis say you simply contact the vendor.


is theire any way to locate where does all the files or any package are located and then simply remove them.

Look through the tar file and use 'find' to see where they were installed.

If the install program is a binary and not a script you don't have much chance seeing what it was doing unless you run it through a syscall tracer.
