2.1i Install: Solaris: setup failed whil processing the FileCopier.Readme
Keywords: install, solaris, FileCopier, Readme
General Description: When installing Alliance 2.1i on a Solaris machine, the following error occurs: setup failed while processing the FileCopier.Readme If the setup.log is examined, the following is there: NumCmdLineArgs = 0 NumCmdLineArgs = 0 error: /software/xilinx2.1i/README.txt is not writable error: couldn't copy /cdrom/solalli/./README.txt to /software/xilinx2.1i/README.txt one task failed
This seems to be a result of bad communication between the CDROM and the file system. A good workaround is to make a local copy of the cd image (cp -r * destination) and install from there.
