I do not believe it hurts your install. If you look at this script, you will see that among other things, it sets ownership of some files to 'root' and performs chmod operations on other files that were installed. If you don't run it when the install asks, you can go back and run it later.

Subject: installation question


I've been installing release 92080 on quite a few machines lately and have managed to do something unexpected on two of them. I've not noticed any issues after my *error*, but I'm wondering if anyone knows if there could be a problem that I just haven't seen, yet.

At the end of the installation, a window pops up with a message about needing to leave this window open and go run from another window. This is all well and good, but twice now I've been working in another window when this message pops up. If I happen to be typing too fast in my other window, the message pops up, the focus is transferred to the installation window before my brain catches up and I've managed to hit return <in my installation window> before the root script has been run. Does anyone know what impact this has on the installation?

Any comments are welcome.
