If you have a 64-Bit system then same as above.

However, if you have a 32-Bit system then :

1. Download VirtualBox from Oracle

2. Install Windows XP on VirtualBox

3. Install Teradata Express on Windows XP in Virtual Box.

Hope this helps

Ok but I'd like to install in a existing Linux VM (Ubutu 15). Where to find a good tutorial?

There's only a pre-installed VM running Teradata on Suse SLES 10/11.

Re: How to install Teradata on UBUNTU

Really weird... I already have a VM with other goods... used to demo our products... and I'll need to boot a whole new VM only for Teradata? Plus... other things doesn't work well on Suse... so trying to install other servers on your VM is a nightmare. Hope Teradata change this direction soon... just providing an express edition for technology validation as any other software producer.

Teradata runs on SLES only, no other Linux distro is officially supported. It's just starting another VM, what's so hard about it? 

On a real Teradata you're not going to install "other servers", it's a dedicated database system and you're probably accessing it from another server anyway.
