Installer Payload Initialization Failed Linux

Postby Sologal70 » 06. July 2013 19:27

Hello,

I am new to Linux and had Xampp on my Windows 7 laptop. It is Linux Mint 14 "Nadia", kernel Linux 3.5.0-17-generic (i686). Processor is 2x Intel Core 2 Due CPU T7500. I have 42.7Gb available on my harddrive.

I downloaded xampp for linux 1.8.2 from the website http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html and I received a xampp-linux-1.8.2-0-install.run file. I followed the instructions to use the terminal to enter su and then my password, then ran chmod 755 xampp-linux-1.8.2-0-installer.run then I ran the command ./xampp-linux-1.8.2-0-installer.run and received the error "Installer payload initialization failed. This is likely due to an incomplete or corrupt downloaded file." I would download and try again, but I had tried to install bitnami before this with the same error messages. I had downloaded that 3 times with the same error. It too was a file ending with .run

When I read the forums, they all are talking about tar files, but that is not what is downloading when I use the link on the webpage. I am either following the directions incorrectly or perhaps they are incomplete? Is it a space limitation on my laptop. My goal is to load Joomla on my laptop for website work. That is why I started with BitNami, but went on to Xampp when that failed. Please advise.

Could you try to run this command from a Terminal?

./xampp-linux1.8.2-0-install.run --mode xwindow

or

./xampp-linux-1.8.2-0-install.run --mode text

Also move the installer to a different folder and try to run there, for example:

mv xampp-linux-1.8.2-0-install.run /tmp
/tmp/xampp-linux-1.8.2-0-install.run
