Ran into a number of display errors while installing the new beta. It appears to be permission related. I was able to work through, but wanted to post for others. My installation sequence was:
Unzip into directory
Move * from the SuiteCRM directory to my web root
Make the cache directory
Run the 2 chown commands:
chmod -R 755 . and
chmod -R 775 cache custom modules themes data upload config_override.php Install
Saw some other missing things (Admin tools stopped at Developer Tools)
Ran all of the diagnostic & repair options
Things seem relatively happy.
Without this sequence, installation had more major issues.

Please ensure you set the recommended permissions on the directory before performing the install:
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data .
sudo chmod -R 755 .
sudo chmod -R 775 cache custom modules themes data upload config_override.php
This varies dependant on your flavour, for example the CentOS owner is apache:apache
I’m good for now, I had to run the chmod’s both before and after the install. In fact, I opened up the permissions more you suggested. I was running into issues installing modules, and a chmod -R fixed it.
Note: I’m running on dreamhost, so my setup maybe different than most.
