Rasdaman installer error reporting

Reported by: mdumitru Owned by: dmisev
Priority: major Milestone: Future
Component: build system Version: development
Keywords: Cc: pbaumann
Complexity: Medium

Description (last modified by mdumitru)

The rasdaman installer treats a command string as a command array. The error logger needs to differentiate between the two when printing the command executed.

On failure, the installer should point the user towards the install log file: /tmp/rasdaman_install.$PID.log and should present more information to the user. This has to be researched on how to best do this for commands where a lot of output is being created (e.g. make)

There needs to be a check that /home/$INSTALLATION_USER is writable by $INSTALLATION_USER as git needs to update some things there.

is there any list of files (or at least directories) modified by the installation process?

the installer should also have a --dry-run option perhaps, just logging the commands it plans to do.
