Installation Problem

Hi,

I'm using calibre since quite a time and didn't have a problem during the installation script.
Now I'm trying to install the latest version (0.99) and there's an error occured saying:

Downloaded 57443095 bytes
Checking downloaded file integrity...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
File "<string>", line 371, in main
File "<string>", line 341, in download_and_extract
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/shutil.py", line 212, in rmtree
rmtree(fullname, ignore_errors, onerror)
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/shutil.py", line 206, in rmtree
fullname = os.path.join(path, name)
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/posixpath.py", line 70, in join
path += '/' + b
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xd0 in position 2: ordinal not in range(128)

I don't really have a clue what to do.
I am using Debian Squeeze (6.06) and the installation script from the calibre download page.

Can anybody give me a hint ?

Thanks,
Fred

That error indicates you have entered an installation path with non-ascii characters. Try it again, this time either accepting the default installation path or entering a simple ascii only path like /opt

You are so fast ! Thanks !

I use the default installation path from the script (/opt) as I used to do every time.

I think there is an issue within the script !

When I enter opt instead of the default enter for /opt, it works !

Sorry It don't work correct. This time it is installed in the current directory under opt.
But going to / and then giving opt to install there's the same error again.

-------
Update:
The error was produced due to a corrupte file within /opt/calibre/bin. After deleting the corrupt file with file manager the installation runs without any problem.

But calibre don't show up after the start showing no error message. If you have a clue just let me know.
