problem with "swinstall".

Hy!

I'm trying to install a depot and is experiencing some mistakes.

When I try to install any depot at # swinstall-s "depot" within the swinstall after I select the depot he did not bring me the option of installing the tab action.
Only install with putting the "\ *" at the end of the line.

I wonder if it is any error in swinstall or anything of the kind.

I'm sending a screen attached.

Thanks!

Re: problem with "swinstall".

Hi:

The '\*' tells 'swinstall' to select all of the depot contents. The absence of any argument would infer that you didn't want to install anything. The behavior is expected.

Re: problem with "swinstall".

Thanks for the quick answer.

I did not expressed correctly in the previous message and try to explain in a different way.

I have one depot in /tmp

With command line the installation proccess runs successfuly.

With GUI, I select the depot, make it Marked for installation, but the INSTALL Menu does not appears.

This is my problem, only with command line I can install depots. Please, see in my attachment, I slected the software that was Marked, but in Action Menu, I can´t see Install option.

Thanks

HI ahsan, I already attached in my first post. There you can see the depot selected, and the Actions Menu without INSTALL.

In my other server, in Action Menu, does not appears ADD TARGET, this is a problem?

Why would you want to use the GUI if the command line works? Especially if you just want to install everything.

Hello again,

SUDHAKARA H.R. and josinjosek , I tried setting those options but it didn't work either.

I noticed that the GUI looks different in this server, comparing with other servers here, and I'm using the same command line in both. Perhaps that's an indication of the problem?

Note: I posted a screenshot of the guy above.
