GNU Health are a set of Tryton modules. What you get from the sources
( ) are all the
modules to that make GNU Health. These modules will go in the
"modules" directory of the Tryton server.
Then, you will update your database instance by installing them from
the modules menu

It depends on how you did the initial installation.

If you used the "source code", local user installation, you will have
everything under the gnuhealth user directory. If you remove the user
with its home directory (ej, /home/gnuhealth), you will remove the
whole installation.

Then you will have to drop the database instance that you have created
( use dropdb command ).
