Hi Prasad,

thanks for this.

I was setting up a new demo of vtiger on an Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) system. 
(This currently ships with php 5.3.2).

The install process appears to work OK right up until the final "Finish" 

Without your patch the finish screen is blank below the "Finish" icon 
and there is no button.

Logging in to the system as admin works but there is no data - even 
though I selected the "populate database with demo data" button. The db 
itself and all the tables looked to have been created properly.

This was really throwing me until I remembered your post about 5.3.

I started again, applied your patch and the install process seems to 
have worked properly this time. vtiger gave me the correct "Finish" 
screen and has populated the CRM with data.

I repeated this (the bit when it didn't work) quite a few times and so I 
believe is consistently repeatable.

As Lucid Lynx will be released in 10 days time, and the server version 
is LTS (Long Term Support) I think you need to make it clear on your 
website/forum/blog that there is a current issue with php version 5.3. 
and with Ubuntu 10.04.

There is an example here of "forcing" the debian package manager to look 
at the older 9.10 repositories enabling users to install php5.2:
