Unanswered: Can't install Sybase ASE 16 Developer Edition
I am trying to setup a Linux VM (CentOS 7 with GNOME) with Sybase ASE 16.
The VM (VirtualBox) is configured with 4GB RAM and 4 CPUs
This is my first time using Sybase, and the installer simply fails at the end when trying to create the server:
I found some logfiles under /opt/sap/ASE-16_0/init/logs
configASELog.log contains this:

There is no error in that logfile except one at the end (after it seems it did create the database and the server):

Is there any other place where I can look to find why the installer fails?
It seems the software itself is installed, so I would also be happy by manually finishing the installation.
This is only for some testing and playing around with it, so I don't need a perfectly tuned or reliant installation.
