how to uninstall .run files


How do you uninstall .run files?

I did

netpanzer-0.1.3-linux-i386-installer.run --help

on it but there was no options to uninstall the program.

Go to the directory below the install directory, and type:

rm -rf <name of dir>

So all the files are installed in one place!

What if there were library files installed or something?

You could search for them, but i use netpanzer myself, they all install to a single dir.

I usually do the following as su:

$> updatedb
$> locate netpanzer -i

And then go through each location that is listed and remove the directories, lib files, logs, man, and docs, etc. Even though netpanzer may be in one directory, this works well with others that are not.

Have you tried doing a "net-panzer.run --help" to see if theres an uninstall feature.

for future reference, to solve such a problem, have a look at checkinstall
