Affects Version/s: 6.1.1 CE GA2
Fix Version/s: None
Environment:Unbuntu 12.04, liferay-portal-6.1.1-ce-ga2 war, Tomcat 7.0.40
Liferay Contributor's Agreement:Accept
A manual installation of Liferay CE generates java.io.FileNotFoundException: /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/ROOT/icons/_sprite.png (Permissions denied).
While the anomaly duly identified the file '_sprite.png' as missing from the WAR file used in manual deployments, in fact, there are at least three files which are missing.
Please refer to the attachment which shows a file difference between the bundled release vs the war deployment file.
-Cf. 1) Contents: Item count in screen dump
2) Identification of missing icons
3) The exception created during the installation.
The installation of Liferay 6.1.1-CE failed due to this exception and or a combination of other issues. Further debugging is still underway.
