Crazy errors trying to install Codewarrior 10 on Ubuntu 10.10 (amd64)

Dear all,

Am I going crazy or have I missed something?

I have downloaded the 700MB tar file from the Special Edition web page.

When I extract it, it creates a single directory called "disk1".

Inside that directory, there is an executable script called "setuplinux".


When I run that script, it terminates with an error message saying there is insufficient disk space in /tmp to extract the files. But there is more than 30GB free!


If I tell it to ignore disk space checks (-is:nospacecheck), it fails with "no JRE installed". But the open JDK is pre-installed.

I have even installed the jre/jdk from Sun (java6). Still no luck.

When I try and specify the java home (-is:javahome <path the any of the jre's>), it still fails.


If I enable debugging (-is:log debug.log [I think, I can't remember offhand]), the log file contents messages saying that it can't find the JRE from the environment or the jvmlist..


If I manually run the installation wizard: "java -cp mcu_10.jar run" (or whatever the jar is called), the install shield dialog comes up, and after I specify the target directory, the wizard spends about 20 - 30 seconds doing nothing (no network, disk or CPU activity) before complaining about a missing dependency (ldd) and that cwde is not installed.

Thereafter there are a few more error dialogs.

After all this, there are no files installed at the installation directory (/usr/local/Freescale/...).


Please, what am I missing? 


Has anyone installed onto Ubuntu 10.10 64bit?
