Re: How to install secure path on rhel3u4

While I'm not intimately familiar with the SecurePath package, it sounds like something isn't unpacking correctly. Did you happen to look at system messages to see if there's an issue?

Consider opening a second session or moving to an alternate console and running:
tail -f /var/log/messages
...this will "tail" the messages file as it's written. Ctrl-C will break you out of the tail when you're done.

Do you have enough space in /tmp for this file to unpack itself?

Is there a /tmp/securepathRPM directory after the program fails? Can you list the contents?

Have you looked at any specific instructions for the package? This is a pretty rudimentary failure so my guess is you have not met some requirement for the installation to succeed.

Shalom,

Seems like either of the following:

1) You have chosen the wrong version.
2) You are missing dependencies.
3) The download was incomplete.
4) All of the above.
