How to reproduce:
1) Run alfresco-community-3.4.a-installer-linux-x32.bin
2) Unselect SharePoint, Records Management, Quickr
3) Choose installation type Easy
4) Select non-yet existing folder for installation
5) Select "Use existing MySQL" and enter details (same bug with bundled anyway)
6) Enter admin password "admin"
7) "Now ready to begin […]" -> Forward
8) Alfresco starts copying a lot of files.
9) When it is about to finish, the following message is shown:

Problem running post-install step. Installation may not complete correctly

' JVM at `/home/nico/programs/Alfresco/java/jre/lib/i386/server


Note the pesky newline character at the end of "server". This newline is unfortunately included in the path to
If I try to start anyway, it says:

Error: no `server^M' JVM at `/home/nico/programs/Alfresco/java/jre/lib/i386/server^M/'

Retried 2 times, always the same problem.
Also same problem with Enterprise version (tried 3 times).
Also same problem when installing as root.

Any idea?
Anybody knows where this "server^M" value is configured, so that I can remove the pesky newline manually?

Thanks a lot!
