Problem


When trying to install the Software Parts Manager while running in csh, the following error results:

 crasher% install.sh 
user_location=/tmp : Command not found
PROD=PS : Command not found
PS_EXEC=partmgr : Command not found
PS_DESC=Software Parts Manager v1.2 : Command not found
THIS_INSTALL=install.sh : Command not found
DEFAULT_NAME=spm : Command not found
DEFAULT_NAME : Undefined variable





crasher%

 

 

 

 




Cause



The shell script install.sh requires sh or its derivative ksh in order to install the SPM. Other scripts used later in the install process require the korn shell ksh, so it is the preferred shell to use at all points while installing or using the SPM.

 




Action


Switch to the korn shell, ksh, and then rerun install.sh. For example:

crasher% ksh
$ install.sh
