java.lang.NullPointerException at ...linux.utils.UnixShellInterface.shutDown(...)

I was making a product installation with IA 2008 VP1 installer, on a Linux machine with this specification, below.
Linux version 2.6.18-194.el5 (mockbuild@x86-005.build.bos.redhat.com) (gcc version 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-48)) #1 SMP Tue Mar 16 21:52:39 EDT 2010
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.5 (Tikanga)


When the product installation was about to finish, I got the following error at the end of the installer log file.

BUILD SUCCESSFUL

Does anyone has an insight on this issue? This install problem is a very urgent matter to me, so I would highly appreciate for any workaround that anyone could provide in order to overcome this error.

Thank you much!

So you got this error in the logs, but does the installer finish correctly or not?

Hi,

I am facing exact same error.
Installer finishes correctly but installer exits with code 208
