Description Petr Blaha 2005-01-05 08:05:51 UTC
[Build 20050103]
I installed AS+NB bundle to directory with space
in name. The installer finished successfully.
However, the App Server isn't installed.
The isssue is related to Linux, UNIX system only.
I guess that bug is in App server's installler.
Comment 1 Petr Blaha 2005-01-06 13:15:55 UTC
I tested standalone App server installer fcs-bin-b41 on Linux machine.
When I specify install directory with space in name I got Error
message: Installation directory contains unsupported space character.
I should enter valid directory name to continue in installation.
Comment 2 mslama 2005-01-06 13:21:26 UTC
Ok. I will add check for space in install path to bundle installer.
Thanks for investigation.
Comment 3 mslama 2005-01-06 13:22:38 UTC
I assume on Windows space is allowed (default install dir is
C:\Program Files\... with space in it.
Comment 4 Petr Blaha 2005-01-06 13:30:46 UTC
Exactly, add check only for Unix, Linux platforms.
Comment 5 mslama 2005-01-13 12:05:13 UTC
Check is added for Linux, Solaris Sparc and Solaris X86.

Fixed in main trunk.
