Pinned topic WAS 6.1 installation wont start on ubuntu

‏2011-12-29T03:13:35Z |
i can't start WAS 6.1 installation on ubuntu 10.04 (also tried 11.10)
launchpad.sh starts firefox with "page/link/button" that starts WAS installation wizard but nothing happens when i click "Launch the installation wizard for WebSphere Application Server - Trial.".

any idea what i can do to fix this?

    I found this article discussing problems with WAS 6.1 and Ubuntu. The article that he references is gone, but I was able to find an archive on the Wayback Machine.

    Essentially, the problem is that Ubuntu links /bin/sh with /bin/dash rather than /bin/bash. (I actually did not know that and I've changed it on mine.) Once the link was connected to /bin/bash it apparently worked OK.
