Which Linux needed for Netweaver 04 TestDrive ?

Hi all,

I tried to install netweaver 04 fom DVD on a SUSE-Linux 9.1. The Installfile says among others it is tested on SUSE 9.0 only. Installation works fine up to the the last step, that is running '', here an error 'no connecting to DB' shows up and screws up the rest.

Is there anybody out who can tell me if suse 9.1 is ok and if it is worth the while to try the installation under 9.1?

For me it seems to be a problem with the enviroment-variables, the script does not find the real place of the DB-Installation, the description of the 'pre-install configuration' is not absolutely clear to me. Perhaps I have set a colon to the wrong place.....

Visiting the forums, i had the impression that either the Linux-Installation is absolutely seemless or nobody has done it before? 😉

Thanks for every help
