Hi Boyd!

Thanks for your help!
We found out that we used the wrong Perl-Version.
Now the configure-script works but the installation still crashes
because test.pl gets the following errors:

server/unixmode.......ok 1
server/startup........ok 2
link/unixmode.........ok 3
server/inetmode.......ok 4
link/inetmode.........not ok 5
server/control........not ok 6
6 tests run -- 2/6 failed.  

Any ideas what´s wrong?

I found that you need to do the following to get it to work.

1.  Get and install GNU make
2.  Make sure you have all the perl libraries installed.
3.  If on the no GUI logins, set LINES=25;COLUMNS=80;export LINES
4.  If in the GUI make sure LINES and COLUMNS are set to your window.
5.  Always start and stop IC from the IC user.

Good Luck,
