Installing Fixpack 2: Couldn't find strings.res

Hi,

At the end of install dialog (when update starts) this message appears:

...
Couldn't find strings.res in /opt/ibm/domino - will attempt to use default

I've done this to determine LANG:

[root@zeus2 domino]# echo $LANG
en_US.UTF-8

The res directory of program path looks as this:

[root@zeus2 res]# pwd
/opt/ibm/domino/notes/90010/linux/res
[root@zeus2 res]# ll
total 12
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Sep  7 16:46 C
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 Sep  8 09:49 en_US.UTF-8

I've done this on 4 other servers without any problems. They had in some cases only the C directory in res.

What can i do ?

Thanks

Uwe

Reason: faulty .install.dat

This file resists in /opt/ibm/domino

It contains among other thinks installation path.

In my case this was wrong and fixpack installation uses this information.

Missing language directory

Steps to resolve:

echo $LANG (resulted in my local settings - en_ZA)

find / -name strings.res (/opt/ibm/domino/notes/90010/linux/res/C/strings.res)

Note no local language directory !

Copied /opt/ibm/domino/notes/90010/linux/res/C/*.* to /opt/ibm/domino/notes/90010/linux/res/C/en_ZA/

Installation settings:

    Program directory    : /opt/ibm/domino
    Data directory       : /local/notesdata
      UNIX user          :   notes
      UNIX group         :   notes

90010 upgrade to 901FP2
