Note, work around is to use --mode text

Executing "./builder --version" returns "BitRock InstallBuilder Multiplatform Enterprise - Version 5.4.14 2008-12-15".

I have installed the agent with the same full installer binary (mysqlmonitoragent- on OpenSolaris 2008.05 running on VirtualBox 2.1.2. The installation was done using the interactive UI mode. It was successful.

Have you tested on Solaris 10, which I was using to repeat this?
[6 Feb 2009 23:03] Marcos Palacios
The same installer binary was tested successfully on Solaris 10 (32 and 64 bit) via scripted installation.

Hi Marcos,
I guess it is not repeatable, or its something to do with my Solaris patch level or something.

We're having trouble reproducing this.  Have you tried a later version of 2.0.5?  Or 2.1.0?  I'm tempted to mark this "Can't repeat", but I wanted to check with you first.  I see that we've had a number of customers download Solaris 10 agents, but I don't know if they installed in GUI or text mode.

I'm seeing this error appear with a agent:

root@...> mysqlmonitoragent-
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 73 (X_GetImage)
Serial number of failed request: 14133
Current serial number in output stream: 14133

"uname -a" output:

This has an acceptable workaround, so unless we see the same problem in 2.1 or 2.2 (which we haven't yet), and 2.2 is reasonably close to release, Bug Council decided not to fix this.
