To install HammerDB on Linux you have the option of using the self-extracting installer or a tar.gz file. The self-extracting installer will create an uninstall executable for you. A tar.gz installation can be deleted manually. In both cases the install is entirely self-contained within the installation directory.
To install from the self-extracting installer using a graphical environment refer to the previous section on the self-extracting installer for Windows, the installation method is the same. Alternatively the installer can also be run at the command line as follows specifying the installation directory when prompted.
