Unable to install Ignition 7.3 on Ubuntu 11.10 desktop

fresh install of Ubuntu 11.10 desktop edition in VMware Player

I set the installer to executable.
open terminal

[code]$cd Desktop
$ sudo su
[sudo] password for user:


Bus Error

installed OpenJDK Java 6 Runtime

# ./ignition-7.3.0-linux-32-installer.run Bus Error

installed OpenJDK Java 7 Runtime

# ./ignition-7.3.0-linux-32-installer.run Bus Error

installed sun-java6-jre

# ./ignition-7.3.0-linux-32-installer.run Bus Error

uninstalled OpenJDK Java 6 & 7 Runtime

# ./ignition-7.3.0-linux-32-installer.run Bus Error

I’m not sure where to go from here.

What version of VM Ware are you using? Bus error is related to segfault, it is basically a message stating that the program is attempting to access memory that doesn’t exist.

VMWare Player 3.0.1
VM guest has 1024 mb ram
20gb hard disk

Two questions:

Did you chmod +x the installer file first?

Did you make sure to download the correct architecture for the Ubuntu you installed? (32- vs. 64-bit)

user@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ sudo chmod +x ./ignition-7.3.0-linux-32-installer.run [sudo] password for user: user@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ ls -l total 360 -rwxrwxr-x 1 user user 368640 2011-10-13 08:00 ignition-7.3.0-linux-32-installer.run user@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ user@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ sudo su root@ubuntu:/home/user/Desktop# ./ignition-7.3.0-linux-32-installer.run Bus error root@ubuntu:/home/user/Desktop#
everything is 32bit.

Strange, I just installed 11.10 32-bit and it worked for me.

Like Kevin mentioned, make sure you have the right architecture.

Otherwise, I’d try updating to player 4.0 if possible, 3.1 at the very least. It also might be worth reinstalling the guest OS just in case something got corrupted during install.

did you install inside a VM, if so which one?

What are the results of this for you?:

ia@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ md5sum ignition-7.3.0-linux-32-installer.run bcd6cae0755f830488e53d48c7646e52 ignition-7.3.0-linux-32-installer.run

Also I just noticed you said VMWare Player. I’m using VMWare Workstation to test this…

Huston we have a problem!!!

root@ubuntu:/home/user/Desktop# md5sum ./ignition-7.3.0-linux-32-installer.run
2dda94880b09c660e82425cb7b729d2e ./ignition-7.3.0-linux-32-installer.run

that seems to have fixed the issue.

i had done a drag and drop to the VM from Host.

this time i used a thumb drive as a temp location. MD5 is much better now.
