Description _ hair 2006-02-05 14:30:43 UTC
The netbeans-profiler-5_0-linux.bin dumps (over and over again)

 line 189: bc: command not found
 line 404: [: : integer expression expected

Pretty obvious to a competent linux user, but linux is being adopted by many not
so competent users at an increasing rate.

All requirements for the install script should be checked and reported in a
friendly way.

Iterate PATH if bc is present. If not print nicer error message to console.
Comment 2 mslama 2007-07-26 10:50:45 UTC
Fixed for NB 6.0: New installer engine does not depend on 'bc'.
