Re: SAS 9.4 Uninstall ERROR

What I say is that you can rm -rF the sas directories, such as:

 

/home/*/.SASAppData/

/opt/sas/config/

/opt/sas/sashome/

etc

Hello @japsas100,

 

I would just delete the folders that contain SAS data/config/logs/temp files, with normal OS commands.

Re: SAS 9.4 Uninstall ERROR

The nice thing about UNIX systems is that one does not need an uninstaller per se, as they do not have such a moronic design as the Windows registry (which constitutes the perfect SPOF - single point of failure - that one could ever devise)

Removing the installation directories, some lines from etc/inittab in case of server processes, amd maybe a directory in /var and/or /tmp will remove software without a trace.
