Trying to install ATG on the Linux platform turned out to be not completely hickup-free. The default installer died with the following message:

    Fortunately, the fix was easy after I found out what went wrong: incorrect assumption about kernel version. To make it work, this "hack" helped:>
    [sourcecode language='css']>
    $ mv ATG2007.1.bin ATG2007.1.bin.orig>
    $ cat ATG2007.1.bin.orig | sed "s/export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/#xport LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/" >ATG2007-1.bin

None of this of course happens on Windows - oh, yes - the joys of not swimming with the crowd :-). You will encounter issues otherwise unknown - but also learn something in the process.
