FIRST_INSTALL has no effect when typo3conf is not writable
In r8023 the FIRST_INSTALL file has been introduced which allows for easier install by creating the ENABLE_INSTALL_TOOL the first time.
However, when the typo3conf directory is not writable, this fails silently, causing the user to see the message no ENABLE_INSTALL_TOOL is found.
Solution: Add check if the typo3conf/ directory is writable. If not, give a notice about this.

- Status changed from Accepted to Closed
- Is Regression set to No
The FIRST_INSTALL concept was removed with the install tool refactoring in 6.2.
I think this issue will no longer be fixed in older version - it is open for 2 years already, there are not many comments by others, so general interest seems to be relativly low.
I'll close the issue for now.
@Peter: if this is still important for you, you could still re-open the issue and maybe push a patch for older releases to review.typo3.org if you wanna have that still fixed.

This Bug already exists in Typo3 CMS 6.2.4
wget http://get.typo3.org/6.2 tar xvzf 6.2 rm -f 6.2 ln -s typo3_src-6.2.4 typo3_src ln -s typo3_src/index.php ln -s typo3_src/typo3 touch FIRST_INSTAL
But the first intall message only disappears, if you do 1 more step
