Installing on Linux

  • Anyone have any success getting this to install on Linux? The file (the file you download from this site) doesn't match any of the descriptions anywhere in any directions that I can find. It claims to be an executable file and it doesn't do anything. So far I'm pretty impressed with the product and documentation for it.
    Using CentOS as the operating system with lots of room...

    Does the file have execute permissions set properly?

  • I changed it so it does and still nothing.

    How do you mean "nothing?" Are you running it from the command line? If so, does it give an error, or just return you to a prompt?

  • [root@LinuxServer Qt]# chmod +x
    [root@LinuxServer Qt]#
    -bash: command not found

    and if you try the good old fashioned windows type method of double clicking on it with the mouse, nothing happens.

    I'm sure I'm missing something simple, as it's been a while since I've had to install anything on this server. It's basically a file server for our network and has been running for over 6 months with no issues and this is the first time I've really "touched" it in that time.

    Try "./"

    The current directory is not in the path and thus not checked when trying to run something.

  • Moderators

    You need to use ./, because your current directory isn't in the path.

    [Edit: Tobias beat me to it!]

  • [root@LinuxServer Qt]# ./
    ./ /usr/lib/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by ./
    [root@LinuxServer Qt]# cat /etc/redhat-release
    CentOS release 5.6 (Final)

    So I need GLIBCXX_3.4.9 but from what I'm reading that's not avaiable for CentOS?

  • I think what I'll do after doing some more reading is bring my dust collecting P4 from home in and install the newest version of openSUSE on it. This will give me a Linux work station to have on the network, which will be a good thing, vs always running from the server.
