I just installed Caldera Preview II, and now I can't reinstall WordPerfect
for SCO. I went very easily with Preview I.
Here's what happened when I started the install script:
Error: Can't open display: :0.0
Unable to execute /tmp/WpTmP/ifiles/cdinst.SCO_S
Warning: Unable to execute the GUI installation. Your
DISPLAY environment variable may be wrong.
Starting the character-based CD installation.
/tmp/WpTmP/ifiles/cdinst.chr: /tmp/WpTmP/Wp60//install: No such file or
/tmp/WpTmP/ifiles/cdinst.chr: ./install.wp: No such file or directory
A few other weird things. Express install left me with a system that would
not boot. And the graphic install hung on the time setting. The only way
I could get it to go was a custom ascii install.
Did they get rid of the LIM (Linux Install Manager)? I did not install
a couple of the pieces, so I rebooted via the floppies and tried to select
some packages, but it said that everything was installed.
When I start X, it complains of Transocket can't connect or something. And
there is something screwy with the FONTSERVER. This may actually be the
problem with WP.
I don't know. This is a bit discouraging. The view from my computer says
that this is a step backward. Anybody else have similar problems? I'd
be happy to find out I've done something dumb...
This is kind of a rambling post, but it seems like a lot of stuff went wrong.
I would really appreciate it if anybody can shed some light on these things.
The really discouraging part is that I read that a lot of people have been
having problems with the latest Slackware. I wonder about Debian...
