||Thanks for the pointer about the CD's own docs. Those will be nice once I can get the installer to actually work; it's nice to have it laid out so nicely.
I don't have a ArcGIS_MWSysReq.log nor anything similar. I looked all over, even "find /" but no such file. I have gone through this installation some 5 times now, deleting /arcgis and rebooting in between tries, and never seen that one.
I've gone over their requirements list, and looks golden. Though, I've already found 2 items they forgot to list as requirements: x11-deprecated-libs and symlinks to simulate the ancient Berkeley DB 3.
Any ideas as to how I make it generate the ArcGIS_MWSysReq.log? I've run the installer plenty of times, it's apparently not just created by default, or is removed during the setup's execution.
