Root Privilege command can Not be executed in Console install/uninstall mode


Recently, I'am using InstallAnywhere 2011 Enterprise Edition to make installer for SUSE Linux 11 sp1, And I found a bug in InstallAnywhere:

I added a "Execute Script/batch file Action in pre-uninstall to run a root privilege command such as reboot, kill -9 $pid..., disillusionarily, the command can NOT be executed when I run install/uninstall in Console mode, it can only be executed successfully in GUI mode!

Can anyone help me on this? Thanks!

Please provide SUSE Linux version. For example SUSE Linux 11.0 or 11.1 and also provide the JRE which has been used for the installer.

Hi jensench,

Installanywhere provides a built-in plugin called "Execute as root"

Request you to try your requirement using this plugin and let us know if you still face any problems.

But, It has dependency on TCL/TK and Expect.

Please make sure you configure them before using the plugin

Hope this Helps
