Linux Agent — Intallation Failed on Ubuntu

Symptom


While installing Linux Agent on Ubuntu 9.04, I receive this error:

cliff@cms:~/Downloads$ sudo ./linux-agent-64-1.62.0-ubuntu.run -e running The Custom Kernel Installer .... eval: 1: Syntax error: Unterminated quoted string cliff@cms:~/Downloads$

Cause


The Linux distribution is not supported.

Resolution


You can get around the issue by temporarily sym-linking /bin/sh to /bin/bash for the install, and then changing it back to the default/bin/dash.

# ln -sh /bin/bash /bin/sh

And after the install:

# ln -sh /bin/dash /bin/sh

Note: You can also get around it by not allowing cki to build the module during the installation, and running it separately afterwards.
