Installing JWSDP on Solaris

Hi, I am trying to install JWSDP on Solaris. The installable is getting executed and in the last step, it asks for the installation directory:

Please specify a directory or press Enter to accept the default directory.
Installation Directory: [/home/Krisdir/jwsdp-1.5]

Press 1 for Next, 2 for Previous, 3 to Cancel or 4 to Redisplay [1] 1

I selected 1, and the program exited without installing anything. Any idea what is wrong? I tried with JWSDP1.5 and 2.0, and the same issue. So, it's not a problem with the distribution.

Thanks a lot.

Could it be that you're not allowed to create /home/Krisdir/jwsdp-1.5 or to write to it?

What if you try to create the directory manually ( mkdir -p /home/Krisdir/jwsdp-1.5 ) or a file inside (touch /home/Krisdir/jwsdp-1.5/testfile )?

What do you get with  "ls -ld /home/Krisdir" and "ls -ld /home/Krisdir/jwsdp-1.5" ?

this is how am running the command:
sh ./jwsdp-1_5-unix.sh -console

Here is the output of the command (ls -ld KrisJava):

drwxrwxrwx   3 asapd018 metasolv     512 Mar 18 00:05 KrisJava/  (I am installing it under KrisJava dir)

I also tried "touch" command and it could create the file, so no access issues.

anything else I can try?

Thanks

What do you see in the trace output? Any clue?

Hi woolmilkporc,
                   I tried this but no luck. What is "set-xv" supposed to do?

The problem is that installation exits without any trace. No clue whatsoever.

I searched on Google and found other people too have got issues with this, but couldn't find a fix.

Thanks

Leo

set -xv  (with a space inbetween) starts a verbose trace of shell script execution.
Since your installation command ends in ".sh" I assumed that it's a shell script.

Maybe you could open it using "vi" and search for "Press 1 for Next" to check what the script would try to do after having received the "1".

I made it work !!. I ran the command in "Ksh" and it works perfect :).  Not sure what problem setup had with "bash" shell.

Thanks wool for your help.
