I am tring to install Lotus Domino/Notes 5.0.5 on a AIX 4.3.3 server.

I go to run the cdrom/ibmpow/install and I get the following error.

Lotus Notes for Unix Install Program
---------------------------------------------
./install[170]: 10088 Segmentation fault

This had Lotus Notes installed on it before. I might have deleted it wrong. I am very new at AIX, is there some kind of uninstall program? Anyways, I just deleted the Lotus folder. I am not sure if that does the trick or not. I am now getting this error when I try to install it again. Any advice on this problem would be really nice. Thanks again,

found the problem

The 'install' script is a Perl script. Generally, when it produces a core file, it is the Perl interpreter that is bundled with the installation that is crashing. Lotus has seen this type of error occur when the 'root' account's LANG environment variable is set to something other than 'C'. To check, as 'root', type:

echo $LANG

if this returns something such as:
en_US

please set the variable to 'C', and rerun the install program. To set the variable in ksh, type:

export LANG=C

If you don't mind me asking what is the purpose of the variable $LANG? Will changing it to 'C' cause other problems elsewhere?

I am not the expert to be asking BUT I think that is was reading C programing language in english??? After I logged out and logged back in it changed back to en_US so if it did affect any programs it got set back to the english. So I don't think so...
