The download packages are distributed in a compressed or gzipped tar format (older releases are in cpio format). After downloading the package to the target machine, follow these instructions to install the software.

lib/ssdhave the proper setuid bits set. The permissions are set correctly in the tar packages, but we have observed that some systems do not preserve the setuid bits when unpacking. The permissions should look as follows:
-rwsr-xr-x lib/probe/probe -rwsr-sr-x lib/ssdIf they are not set correctly then run the following commands:
chmod 4755 lib/probe/probe chmod 6755 lib/ssd

bindirectory in the PATH prior to the system ksh to pick up the included ksh88i. If you are installing nmake on Solaris see the Solaris 10 KSH Compatibility and Solaris KSH Hangs FAQs for details. Some Linux distributions install pdksh, which is not compatible, at
/usr/bin/ksh. Some Linux distributions also have a true AT&T ksh available which can be used with nmake; check your distribution. Also see the probe FAQ for the probe shell requirements.
