SunRay Server Software (SRSS) on RHEL5

By thomas, 21 September, 2007
This appears to be working fine now. I have installed srss_4.0 on our RHEL5 server. I had to install a few extra packages to get things to install:
  • dhcp
  • openldap-server
  • openmotif22
  • tftp-server
I had to make some symlinks:
  • /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/
  • /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/
  • /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/
  • /usr/X11R6/bin/X /usr/bin/X
  • /usr/X11R6/bin/mkfontdir /usr/bin/mkfontdir
  • /usr/X11R6/bin/mkfontscale /usr/bin/mkfontscale
  • /usr/X11R6/lib/fonts /usr/share/X11/fonts
  • /usr/X11R6/rgb.txt /usr/share/X11/rgb.txt
The lib links could go in /opt/SUNWut/lib/compatlinks, but at this stage, I'm not interested in cleanliness. I replaced /usr/X11R6/Xnewt with a script and moved Xnewt to /usr/X11R6/bin/Xnewt.sun Using the script I can debug what Xnewt is trying to do and try and satisfy the dependencies. It still doesn't work though, any help appreciated... #!/bin/sh XFIX=`echo $@ |sed -e's/vt[0-9]*//'` XFIX=`echo $XFIX |sed -e's/-indirect localhost//'` echo `date`: ARGS=$@ XFIX=$XFIX >>/var/log/Xnewt exec /usr/X11R6/bin/Xnewt.sun $XFIX -fp unix/:7100 After some more stracing, I saw that another link needed to be made for gdmgreeter to run.
  • /usr/lib/ ->
There is a problem with our ldap configuration, if I use starttls in /etc/ldap.conf, then no one can login, but on other machines this works fine, I'm not sure if this is related to the symlinks I made or if I managed to screw something else up. Without starttls, the system works fine and people can login. I don't really like this though, I prefer encryption on my ldap connections. To get utadm to report dhcp properly, symlink /var/lib/dhcpd to /var/lib/dhcp I'm testing audio and disk now.
