I am installing iManager on a new server and ran into a very strange
problem. When I agree to the EULA it shows me the Pre-Installation
Summary, where I would normally tell it to install Tomcat, iManager 2.7,
and Plugins, but instead of giving me the options, each one just says
"Not Selected".

I found 'this'
(http://www.novell.com/communities/no...er-opensuse11x)
article where someone described this scenario and that you could get
around it by editing the /etc/SuSe-release file. I don't see how this
applies to me and this is a RHEL 6.2 server anyway. This is also the
3rd RHEL 6.2 server where I've installed iManager in the last couple of
months and I've never run into this. Here's what the installer looks
like (minus the EULA):

Eventually, due to seeing the messages about it being a "CONSOLE Mode
Installation" I figured I'd try running it from an xterm. It didn't
launch a GUI or anything, but for some reason the components were now
there for my selection. Just hoping someone might be able to explain
that as I feel there is possibly an underlying bug in the installer or
something else that I'm missing.

Thank you!
