You might have noticed new Labview distributions has a script in them that allows installing LabVIEW on computers that are not based on rpm. I easily installed LV 2011 on my Ubuntu Oneiric 32-bit. However I cannot install the VIPM! I tried different methods, created links to the missing libraries and finally I was able to see the installation screen. But when I click on Next couple of time and select where to install, the window just disappears and there are no outputs on the command line either. I was so happy when I managed to run the vipm installer after dealing with 8.2 runtime related problems but now I cannot move further on. Haven't anybody tried this before? Where can I look to see what is the problem? Any ideas?
Edit: I noticed that when I don't say sudo, installer won't start and I get the following error:
error 8 creating temporary LVSB resource file
LabVIEW caught fatal signal
8.2.1 - Received SIGSEGV
Reason: address not mapped to object
Attempt to reference address: 0x4
It looks like it cannot create a temporary folder since it does not have the rights, I guess we have to run the installer as a root?
P.S. This one seems to be a good method to get the run time running
