Installing on UNIX without a web browser installed on the server

0 Likes

Problem:

When installing DPJ 3.0 on a UNIX server, it prompts for an install of Netscape 7. This system is a dedicated server and we do not wish to have Netscape installed, only DevPartner Java 3.0.  The installer will not let me bypass this.

Resolution:

The best workaround for this is to create a 'dummy file' in your home directory and use that as the installer only looks for the existence of the 'netscape' file:

1. go to a shell prompt on the UNIX system :

2. go to your home directory:

3. Create a file called 'netscape' using the touch command ie touch netscape

4. Use that file to complete the installation. In the installer , browser to that file and click the continue button and the installation will complete
