Description

18 years ago
I downloaded PR2 for linux and ran the installer on my Red Hat 6.0 machine.  It
began downloading the components but when it got to the point where it begins
extracting the files, the console began dumping shell script errors (unzip:
command not found) then it dumped core.

I found that it requires the utility "unzip" which my RH 6.0 machine didn't
have.  Once I installed the RPM for unzip, the installer worked fine.  The unzip
utility lives in /usr/bin/unzip.

The README file that comes with the installer says that RH 6.0 is supported.

I'm not completely sure that RH 6.0 comes with unzip, but I think that my
machine was a pretty stock install of RH 6.0. Either the README needs to be
changed or a different utility needs to be called.

We need to release note the fact that users need the "unzip" and "ftp" 
utilities.  "ftp" is pretty common but "unzip" may not be.

For the next release we need to integrate libjar in the Unix installer as we 
have done for Mac and Win32.  This becomes espcially important for the folks 
porting to other Unices.

Make sure 'unzip' is not in your path.  Then run the installer.  That would be 
the simplest blackbox verification, I think.
