I'm sorry, I don't have an immediate answer, but I do feel your pain.

Am writing to suggest trying to run it from a terminal window to see
if that helps at least give you some error messages to work with. It's

to run as root user. Ended up accidentally uncovering some (missing)
flash related whoopsies I had caused to occur. :)
