Installscript broken? Gzip error
« on: April 15, 2007, 12:06:41 am »
Hi,

I have followed the procedures described in the wiki. (dowloaded the mce cd, installed the installer package) but when I tried to run the installer no window appeared, it ended immediatly.

I looked at the installer script and modified it so that it gives me more output. The result was the following:
Code: [Select]
root@lama:/root/# /usr/share/mce-installer/mce-installer.sh

Linux MCE Installer Starting ... please wait


gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
./mce-installer: error while loading shared libraries: liboobs-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Here are my modifications:

Code: [Select]
$ cat /usr/share/mce-installer/mce-installer.sh
#!/bin/bash

#exec &>/dev/null </dev/null
export DISPLAY=:0
echo ""
echo "Linux MCE Installer Starting ... please wait"
echo ""
...

Thanks for your help!

mce installer is compiled on ubuntu edgy eft with an older version of liboobs, 1.2 i think.feisty fawn has 1.3. one solution could be downgrading liboobs. another solution is creating a symlink like this: ln -s liboobs-1.so.3 liboobs-1.so.2 ins /usr/lib.
