A Panther installation was not successful if you receive an error message and the
program terminates. The following messages describe some of the more common
error messages and how to resolve them.
Recurring errors: Occasionally, errors described in this section seem to recur even
though the file smvars is in order. More often than not, the problem is that the
smvars file (in the config directory), although correct, has not been converted to
binary (smvars.bin), which is the required format used by Panther. If the ASCII
version of smvars has been edited, be sure to run var2bin to convert it to binary
format. Otherwise Panther is not aware of the changes, and it will seem as though
smvars was not updated.
Please enter terminal type or <RETURN> to exit.
