i've been seeing this for the past several days... i'm not sure if this due to my current linux use: last week there were NFS problems and i wasn't able to access my /u/sairuh dir --so, as a workaround, i have [and still am for the time being] been using a local account on my box [located in /home/perf]. anyhow, to summarize: when i use the stubs linux installer, the installer quits after component download completes. i need rerun the installer to actually install the product. 1. download the linux commercial stubs installer. for each build i always create and download a unique directory. 2. decompress the file, then cd into the netscape-installer dir. 3. run the installer: entered './netscape-installer' [without the quotes, o'course]. 4. selected the target dir [the one i created in step 1] and selected a custom installation. 5. i selected all components except for Java; and i left the proxy panel untouched. 6. click the Install button and watched the download progress. actual result: after all the component files have finished downloading, the installation dialog disappears. 7. i rerun the installer. result: i need to go thru steps 4-6 again [no proxy panel, tho'], but installation then happily installs the product. let me know if you need further info!
Summary: stubs: installer quits after download completes → stubs: installer quits after download completes; need to rerun installer
reassigning to Syd. This bug sounds very similar to bug 97249, but with the exception of the crash.

What version of linux are you running on? I just tried today's build (2001-08-29-08-trunk) under RedHad 6.2, and it ran fine.
I installed today's build (2001-08-29-08-trunk) using RedHat 6.1 and 7.0 and it ran fine for me too.
i have RH 6.2 with the gnome desktop and the sawmill wm. the local and network accounts i use on this box are the same in that respect --the only differences there being that the wm theme and background image differ [mainly so i can visually tell who i'm logged in as :)].
happened again today with the 8am stubs. but this time an error dialog persisted for more than a miscrosecond, which said something to effect of, "some files didn't download successfully." odd, since rerunning the installer seems to install the app just fine [afaict].
what's the status on this? this continues to be a problem with both branch and trunk bits. it's also still a problem when i'm logged back as myself ['sairuh', non-local account] on my linux box at the office; also a problem on my home linux box. here's a console msg i get today [with 2001.09.13.08-trunk comm bits]: Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtkprogress.c: line 518 (gtk_progress_set_percentage): assertion `percentage >= 0 && percentage <= 1.0' failed.

Should be plus, but is a dupe.
