I am attempting to install PurifyPlus.7.0.1 for Linux on a machine running Ubuntu 10.04. When I run rs_install, there is no output to the screen (no prompts/warnings/anything). Similarly when I try to run license_setup or license_check. Is this a known issue, and is there a solution?

Re: no output from rs_install2012-03-29T23:11:24Z in response to SystemAdminHi Michael,
There are known issues running Purify (or even INSTALLING Purify) on Ubuntu.
For starters, the rs_install script will hang when it attempts to determine
the OS that you're running on. Even if you hack the install script and get
past that, you may encounter other issues on Ubuntu because IBM does no testing
on that platform at all.
Your best bet is to stick to supported versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux
(RHEL) or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES). Also, we have a number of people
successfully using PurifyPlus on CentOS Linux.
Re: no output from rs_install2012-06-29T23:35:14Z in response to SystemAdminI'm having the same problem. I'm attempting to install on Linux, SLES10, but rs_install appears to hang. Also, I've seen other interesting things. It appears that some aliases for rs_install also hang, but some seem to do the wrong thing. For instance, rs_help seems to collect a file and builds a directory tree there, uninteresting to me, but looks like some sort of defaults thing. Any suggestions?
Re: no output from rs_install2012-06-30T01:41:43Z in response to SystemAdminHi Darral,
Well, if in fact the problems are related, the rs_install script
would hang when it was trying to identify the OS by checking the
/etc/issue file. On some operating systems, the contents of the
/etc/issue file would somehow confuse the rs_install script and
cause the whole thing to hang. As a test, you might want to try
changing the contents of /etc/issue to something that is known
to work. For example:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS Release 4 (Nahant Update 6)
This might allow the rs_install to proceed, but you'll eventually
want to change /etc/issue back to what it originally was at some
