[buster-discuss] Installation problems

I have attempted to install Buster-TNT for our users and been defeated 
by a couple of problems.  Even with a simple single user/single machine 
installation I get the following errors when I try to run the Barnase 


   ERROR in /common/app/buster/buffet/cgi-bin/inputform.cgi

   The following return values are set:

        Child error = 0
        OS error = Inappropriate ioctl for device
        Eval error = 0

   Error message: Error parsing the mtzdump output of 
   None.buster/datafiles/Barnase.mtz Cell/symmetry/resolution 
information is missing


I've checked paths and permissions and these all look okay as far as I 
can tell with my limited understanding of the way in which Buster 
works.  checkBDG.sh reports no problems.

The machine in question is a dual-xeon box running RedHat 8.0 (old, I 
know, but required by other software on this machine).  Buster-TNT has 
been tried in both an automounted and a local directory and runs under 
a dedicated user (buster).  Sharp is running smoothly on the same 
machine under a different user and in a different directory.

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
