During the Visual COBOL or Enterprise Developer installation on SUSE 12 SP1 installation, the Visual COBOL product will be installed, but the MFLicenseServerInstall.sh call made during the installation will fail to extract the binaries necessary to install the licensing system. During debug, a pax: Bad Option: -O. error message will be noted.
At line 1989 in MFLicenseServerInstall.sh
Change the following line and remove ! from the if statment.
if [ "$platform.x" != "Linux_ppc.x" ]
if [ "$platform.x" ="Linux_ppc.x" ]
Then the installer should work and extract the binaries and complete successfully.
This issue will be resolved in Visual COBOL and Enterprise Developer 2.3 Update 1 Hotfix1.
