#79 closed System Defect (invalid)

The installer claims success even if there were errors

The installer claims success regardless of errors.

During one failed installation attempt, I noticed a torrent of error messages like this one (quoting almost exactly how it looked on my screen):

filename: Failed to create /usr/local: No such file or directoryCan't create /usr/l

In spite of these errors, in the end the installer claimed that the installation was complete. Evidently it didn't notice that the installation had failed.

(If I remember correctly, this torrent of errors appeared during an installation that failed because of the error that I described in ticked #76. Thus the failure to create /usr/local is probably resolved automatically when ticket 76 is resolved, and doesn't need to be addressed here. The problem that I'm addressing here is that the installer should know when it has failed.)

This will be resolved in 8.0. We are re-writing the system installer from scratch, and it'll do more proper error checking.
