When I try to install JAI on my machine, the installer says that "file appears
to be corrupted". The error looks like this in context:
Sun Microsystems, Inc. ("Sun") ENTITLEMENT for SOFTWARE
Licensee/Company: Entity receiving Software.
Effective Date: Date of delivery of the Software to You.
Do you agree to the above license terms? [yes or no]
tail: cannot open `+215' for reading: No such file or directory
The download file appears to be corrupted. Please refer
to the Troubleshooting section of the Installation
Instructions on the download page for more information.
Please do not attempt to install this archive file.
The install file is not corrupted. The following command causes the installer
to run perfectly:
_POSIX2_VERSION=199209 /bin/sh jai_imageio-1_1-lib-linux-i586-jdk.bin
More info on this workaround can be found at
Even with the workaround this is a significant issue to me because I have end
users trying to get JAI installed on their machines. This issue causes confusion
and bad impressions for JAI and my toolkit.
I am running on Ubuntu (Release 8.0.04 hardy) with the following details
