 Return code: 1
 Stderr: mkdir: cannot create directory '/opt/rasdaman//third_party/': Permission denied

ERROR: The installer returned an error code. The installation might not be valid.
rasdaman: unrecognized service
 * Stopping Tomcat servlet engine tomcat8
Rasdaman command log:
cat: /tmp/rasdaman_command_log: No such file or directory

Another problem seems to be that the rasdaman log is not created anymore.

Some good news, the installer is now fixed and does not fail to install rasdaman. Unfortunately the launcher fails to bring up tomcat8 though. Getting closer.
