When installing an Oracle Financial Services Funds Transfer Pricing (FTP), Asset Liability Management (ALM), or Profitability Management (PFT) Service Pack, when you execute the "install.sh" file, the install fails and the install process causes the Unix session to exit.  The Unix console window disappears.

If you run the install.sh while writing the Unix output to a log file, the log file contains bad characters.

Example: ./install.sh > FTP55.log

The FTP55.log contains a short line of random letters and characters.

Before running the installation, you did verify that all control ^M characters were removed from the text files install.sh, params.conf, patchRegistration.sh, and precheck.sh.  Also, you found and removed invalid prerequisite patches listed in the params.conf file.  The installer continues to vanish even after completing these steps.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Unzip the patch file to a staging directory on the server
  2. Run chmod 777 on all files
  3. Remove the control characters from the install.sh, params.conf, precheck.sh, and patchRegistration.sh
  4. Run the installer using the command: ./install.sh

The Unix console disappears.
