If I remember correct I had a similar problem when I had FTP enabled with the Joomla global configuration. That did solve the directory/file owner problem but installation only worked halfway (the frontend files tar and admin files tar did not install hence missing files and directories). When FTP is disabled within the Joomla configuration the installation of VM goes all the way.

I had same problem. Disable FTP .
 You must delete manualy folders:
/administrator/components/com_virtuemart
/components/com_virtuemart

And then, from Joomla! administration, uninstall virtuemart component. It gives error, but its OK.
If your Joomla! folders  have ftp owner, you must give write permissions(757) to folders:
/administrator/components
/components
/tmp

When installation is done, change folders permissions back to 755

I can confirm that using mauri's instructions I have successfully installed VirtueMart 1/1

Thanks very much for the quick replies.

Note to developers, install does not work under FTP mode :) in Joomla 1.5.0 Stable :)

By ftp mode you mean inputing ftp configuration info during Joomla installation?

Apologies.


Description:
Virtuemart v1.1 revision 1225 Complete Package for Joomla 1.5 does not install via the installer if  Enable FTP is set in Joomla under the global config settings in the admin backend.  When installing either sample data or going to shop, the errors outlined in my 1st post occur.

VirtueMart Version:
Virtuemart v1.1 revision 1225

Joomla/Mambo Version:
Joomla! 1.5.0 Production/Stable [ Khepri ] 21-January-2008 23:55 GMT

Steps to replicate:
Attempt to Install Virtuemart using the Joomla Installer with FTP Mode Enabled in the global configuration.

Proposed fix(es):
None, sorry I'm not a developer just willing to help test.

Bugtracker task #:
Can someone give me some pointers to this?, I'm lost.

When Joomla! FTP mode is enabled:
The problem is that installer install component files and folders but did not unpack the admin_files.tar.gz and frontend_files.tar.gz files. When install continues (install demo products or go direct to shop) there are no files, because them are in tar.gz packing.

Sounds like a bug in the Joomla! 1.5 FTP-based Installer...
Maybe someone should report the bug over at joomlacode.org.

I think extensions have no FTP functionality.
Because. When installing virtuemart component and Joomla! FTP functionality is enabled, installation goes well so far it stops "The first step of the Installation was SUCCESSFUL" Now all just installed virtuemart folders ,files and xxx.tar.gz are owned to FTP.
Now you choice "install demo products" or "go direct to shop" , virtuemart installation continues(rename conf. dist, unpack tar.gz and install db.), but now virtuemart have no FTP rights anymore and cant handle files and folder who owns FTP.

When manually install virtuemart, it works but  eg. add image to product, the new image owner is noboby, not FTP.

I see what you're both getting at now, yes, does look like a Joomla! issue.
