uninstalling maxdb

dan
Hi,
I just downloaded maxdb 7.5.0.5 from mysql.

I needed to reinstall it but it didnt come with an uninstall
application.

So being silly i removed the directory it installed in /opt/sdb and
tried to rerun the SDBINST program.

This is the error i now get.

----------------------------------------------

[root@localhost maxdb-all-linux-32bit-i386-7_5_0_5]# ./SDBINST

Installation of MaxDB Software
*******************************
starting installation We, Nov 19, 2003 at 08:41:34
operating system: Linux I386 2.4.20 8 GLIBC 2.3.2
callers working directory:
/root/downloads/maxdb-all-linux-32bit-i386-7_5_0_5
installer directory:
/root/downloads/maxdb-all-linux-32bit-i386-7_5_0_5
install registry path "/var/opt/sdb/data/config/install" dont exist
cannot create install registry file
installation exited abnormally at We, Nov 19, 2003 at 08:41:35

----------------------------------------------

Does anyone know what else needs to be removed in order to do a
reinstall.

Thanks

Hello,

I advise you to drop all you instances and they you can uninstall
MaxDB by the following UNINSTALL program :
<maxdb_dir>/indep_prog/bin/sdbuninstall
as parameter you should notice -all
