I reinstalled the installer package, checked the md5sum, it matches yours. I re-ran the script file, from both the desktop and as root. From the desktop, nothing happens. From the console as root I get a return to the next line. No error, nothing. The temp directory is never created, there is no log built. When I open the mce_installer.sh in VIM, i get a message that mce_installer.sh has been "converted" at the bottom? I simply want to take out the null portion of the script so I can see what is going on when the script runs. I attempted to take it out and resave. I can see the script execute now, and it fails with an error from gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file. I am not sure if this is because I've taken the line out and saved incorrectly in vim or if it is failing in the same manor behind the null.
The install is a fresh brand new 20 hour old 6.10 ubuntu desktop install, clean format. x86/intel system.
Why is there not logging sooner in this script? Also, is there a more manual approach to this install, I appreciate the "easy" button, but in the event that there is problems, I am limited by the automation. I.e. for example, could I get a tar of the extracted files, so i can run the ./mce_installer manually bypassing this auto-extract file?
