I'm having a problem trying to install AIR under Xandros
Linux on an eeepc 901. Yes, I know it isn't one of the supported
distributions, but since it uses the debian style packet manager, I
thought I'd give it a go.
The .airinstall.log file seems to indicate the the installer
can't run ar :
subinstaller: Installing package ...
subinstaller: Copying /tmp/air.w6yL1c/setup.deb to
subinstaller: Deleting /tmp/air.w6yL1c/setup.deb
subinstaller: Copying /tmp/air.w6yL1c/build/opt/Adobe
AIR/Versions/1.0/Resources/setup.deb to /tmp/air.w6yL1c/setup.deb
subinstaller: Error occurred; beginning rollback: [ErrorEvent
type="error" bubbles=false cancelable=false eventPhase=2
text="Could not run the command : ar" errorID=1]
I am assuming this refers to the Linux 'ar' archive command.
I can see no obvious reason why 'ar' wouldn't run, it works ok from
the command line both as the default eeepc userID and via sudo.
