After selecting the destination directory I got the error message "Base IDE ist set up to be installed to ... which does not belong to any of the filesystem roots.

I tried to install into my home directory, which is a NFS mount.

Installer log attached.

I've installed the versions 7.0.1, 7.1 and 7.1.2 on this machine without this issue.

Probably caused by fix issue 214959
Comment 4 joergw 2012-07-27 05:20:13 UTC
With the workaround mentioned in issue 214959 (, it works for me.
Comment 5 Libor Fischmeistr 2012-09-24 08:51:09 UTC
Can you describe me how did you manage your mounted points? I need to reproduce this bug to fix it..
Comment 6 joergw 2012-10-01 06:13:47 UTC
What do you need to know in detail? On this machine, I'm not an administrator and don't manage anything. But I will ask admins what you want to know. I can provide some more diagnostic output, too.
Comment 7 Libor Fischmeistr 2012-11-12 08:16:34 UTC
This bug is very individual, we are unable to reproduce it.

It should be documented as a corner case...

Workaround exist's (thanks to joergw): use "" switch.
Comment 8 Libor Fischmeistr 2013-04-04 14:35:54 UTC
There were several changes in installer regarding to dealing with symlinks and paths.

Please if you are still able to reproduce this bug, try the new daily build and tell us if you issue is still valid.
