When installing the Application CD after installing PeopleTools 8.49 CDs on Red Hat Linux 5, the screen goes back to a command prompt after InstallShield launches and Enter is pressed after seeing Press 1 for Next, 3 to Cancel or 4 to Redisplay [1].

JRE is 1.5 and export display=0.0 are in effect.

The install log file shows the following:

for JVM: Sun Microsystems Java Development Kit (JDK) 1.4.X for Linux
/apps/beatux91/tuxedo91/bin/java does not exist
A suitable JVM could not be found. Please run the program again using the option -is:javahome

Running the program with -is:javahome pointing to either java 1.4 or 1.5 produces the same results.

Note:  This applies to HRMS 8.9, Portal 9.0, FSCM 9.0 and potentially other installation CDs created with versions of JRE previous to 1.5.
