Remember ITM Prerequisites

by bluemedora_editor on August 24, 2009

While testing the installation of one of our ITM 6.2.1 Agent Builder agents on Red Hat 5.3, I ran into an old friend:[root@antioch CD_ROOT]# ./setupLinux.bin
InstallShield Wizard

The installer is unable to run in graphical mode. Try running the installer
with the -silent flag.
[root@antioch CD_ROOT]#
Oops! After some hunting around, it turns out that I had forgotten a prerequisite, an easy mistake to make. In this particular case, the missing dependancy was libXp.i386 (libXp.so.6) To solve this problem, I installed the missing requirement:[root@antioch CD_ROOT]# yum install libXp
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
...
Installed: libXp.i386 0:1.0.0-8.1.el5
Complete!
Run the setupLinux.bin program and there should now be a graphical installation dialogue. It’s worth noting that the libXp.so.6 file may be found in the xorg-x11-deprecated-libs package on RHEL 4.x. Other installation prerequisites may be found here.
