This issue is resolved. Basically, the customer had 2 issues:

1) The product is tested and certified on Red Hat Enterprise Server, and he was trying to install it on Red Hat Enterprise Workstation; the installer fails because it does not recognize Workstation.

2) There were several packages required by the product that were missing on the customer's machine. The required packages are listed in the Release Notes document for the product.

Once the customer addressed these two issues, the install worked.

# swapon -s

/dev/dm-0                               partition 19922940 0 -1

19GB for swap partition -- also far enough.

Hi Jack,

The Release Notes document for Visual COBOL for Eclipse 2.3 on Red Hat indicates that the space requirement during installation is only 3.69 GB, so this does not appear to be a space issue.

Are you able to (as root) manually create the parent of the target directory for the installation? You might try this using a command such as:

   mkdir -p /opt/microfocus

If so, what does the df -h show on that directory?

Also, I notice that in another community post from this past March, it appears you successfully installed this same product on a Red Hat machine. Is this a different machine? Are you still installing a Personal Edition of the product?

You may want to determine whether pax is installed. The installer uses pax to extract the binaries.

#ls /opt/microfocus

logs  VisualCOBOL

So I need to  remove  /opt/microfocus  first

# rm -Rf /opt/microfocus

Then, I create it

# mkdir -p /opt/microfocus

#cd /opt/microfocus

# pwd

/opt/microfocus

# df -h

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/sdb2        99G   31G   64G  33% /

devtmpfs        7.8G     0  7.8G   0% /dev

tmpfs           7.8G  208K  7.8G   1% /dev/shm

tmpfs           7.8G  9.0M  7.8G   1% /run

tmpfs           7.8G     0  7.8G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup

So I can confirm  /opt/microfocus is in 64GB free space.

So,  free space and pax package are not the reason  for above error.

I tried the installation on RHEL 7.2,  I got installation passed through,  but I can not start it -- only Eclipse, no COBOL components loaded.  I  tweaked it for a few of days to make it working.  

Now I tried the installation on RHEL 7.1,  Then I got above error.

It has never been an easy process for me.   I guess it will be the same for every newbie.

I have contacted Jack outside the forum to gather some additional information. I will update the forum as appropriate when the issue is resolved.

RE: Installation Error

Visual COBOL is the development tools just like Microsoft Visual Studio.  Not a server product.

Being certified on Workstation OS  makes more sense to developers.

I expect 3 improvements in next release version of Visual COBOL:

1. Being certified on Workstation OS,  at least  REDHAT Enterprise Workstation, even better if on Ubuntu LTS version.   --- I volunteer to be a tester !

2. Using 64-bit Eclipse, because 32-bit Linux will be extinct and rarely used.  For EFI based computers (new PCs manufactured from year 2015),  there is even no way to install 32-bit Linux.  

3. Installation process will  ask user to confirm (y/n) to install all dependencies (missing packages)  automatically,  not require user to install missing packages one by one manually.

Thanks.

Hi jzhang, thanks for your feedback.

Just wanted to let you know that many of the points you have made here should be resolved or greatly simplified in our next major product update.

Now you have the product installed, I hope you're getting a chance to explore the features available for COBOL developers using Visual COBOL.

Regards, Scot
