FAQ: Why do the ArcSDE 64-bit installations on Linux ask for a CD-ROM mount point?

Question

Why do the ArcSDE 64-bit installations on Linux ask for a CD-ROM mount point?

Answer

This is an oversight. Only DVDs are provided for the ArcSDE 9.3 SP1 64-bit installations on Linux. Therefore, to avoid confusion, the installation should return this prompt:

Code:
Enter installation media mount point


Instead of this:

Code:
Enter CD-ROM mount point [/cdrom]
