Problems installing SlickEdit 11.0.2 linux patch
« on: January 10, 2007, 07:42:00 pm »
Hi, I can't get the Linux 11.0.2 patch installed. I get the following error:

$ sudo ./update -y /usr/local/slickedit/bin/vs


Updating SlickEdit installed at /usr/local/slickedit/
using update distribution located at /tmp/linux-11.0.2/.

Skipping disk space check.
Transferring license. Please wait...
Updating files. Please wait...
SlickEdit Update: Insufficient write access to /usr/local/slickedit/udbackup.00/sysconfig/http/www.slickedit.com/dtd/vse/upcheck/1.0/hotfix.dtd.
SlickEdit Update: Can't backup file /usr/local/slickedit/sysconfig/http/www.slickedit.com/dtd/vse/upcheck/1.0/hotfix.dtd to /usr/local/slickedit/udbackup.00/sysconfig/http/www.slickedit.com/dtd/vse/upcheck/1.0/hotfix.dtd.


I'm running this as root (have even tried logging in directly as root), so there should not be any permissions issues.

As a result, it appears only half the patch is getting installed. I'm getting weird hangs, where the whole thing will lock for 1-2 seconds.

Any advice?

Thanks,
Nate

Ok, thanks to a coworker, we were able to get this working. On CentOS 4, the linux patch is completely busted.  >:(

To get it to install,

   tar xzvf se_110002_linux_patch.tar.gz
   cd linux-11.0.2
   sudo ./update -y /usr/local/slickedit/bin/vs

Now, it'll start going, and you'll see files being written out. Quickly hit Ctrl-S to suspend the install.

From another window, mkdir -p the offending missing dir:

   cd /usr/local/slickedit/udbackup.00/sysconfig/http/www.slickedit.com/dtd/vse/
   mkdir -p upcheck/1.0

Note: If you have run it unsuccessfully before, you'll need to change "udbackup.00" to the appropriate number, as it increases each time.

Hit Ctrl-Q to resume the session, which will finish installing the patch.

The patch is broken in SuSE 10.2 as well - the workaround listed above works quite nicely.
