Which window manager/desktop are you using? And does Debian 6.0 come with xterm installed? If it doesn't you could try running the install.sh with --nox11 argument.

(I assume you've seen all the earlier postings about the need for csh to be installed, and if your Debian is 64-bit you also need the 32-bit compatibility libraries.)

Problem Installing Medusa4 v5 on Debian 6.0

I've installed KDE 4.4.5 my only desktop manager. The xterm installed is Konsole.
I run the command
sh install.sh --nox11
... and the result was the same. I also have installed csh, and my debian is 32 bits.
The library libg2c0 is not avalaible, then I install the libgfortran3 library.
The gcc-3.4-base is neither available so I install the gcc-4.4-base. Is that correct?.

thanks MickeC for your interesting

That should be OK, the list of terminal programs that the install script checks for is "xterm rxvt dtterm eterm Eterm kvt konsole aterm".

I do not know if this affects anything, but on my Kubuntu 10.04 (Debian 5?) sh is a link to /bin/dash - but the installation worked.

I do not see why gcc or gfortran should be needed. Unfortunately this is hard for me to test because I /do/ need gcc to build other packages I use.

What I would do now is to follow the links from 'sh' to find which is the real executable, then check its man page to find the argument to print every line as executed (for example most of them are -v) and then run the script with that. That should show which line in medusa4_v5_0_1_linux_personal.sh is generating the message.

It may be that the message is inside a lower-level script, in which case we have to use the option to keep the temporary files so we can examine them.

I do not have a copy of Debian 6.0 itself, but I do need to update the Kubuntu 10.04, so maybe I could try Debian 6.0 on a spare disk.
