HP Virtual Room installation on RHEL 6 x64

Hi! (First post :)

Anybody ever tried to install HP Vroom on RHEL 6 x64?

Installation of hpvirtualroom works fine for me (nice green check marks), but then it doesn't open the test room.

If I run ~/.hpvirtualrooms/hpvirtualrooms

First it complained about libXi, so I "rpm -ivh libXi-1.3-3.el6.i686.rpm. Then it complained about libXrandr, so I put in libXrandr-1.3.0-4.el6.i686.rpm. Then it complains about "libglib-2.0.so.0". At which point I'm stuck.

I have "glib2-2.22.5-5.el6 (x86_64)" already.

What should I install? I tried with "glib2-2.22.5-5.el6.i686.rpm". This requires "libfam.so.0" - which I have not been able to find. Well I did find a "gamin-0.1.10-9.fc15.i686.rpm" which has it apparently, but that one requires glib2.. catch 22 ;)

Is it supposed to be this hard?
Could it be unsafe to install them? Like if they overwrite something?

Re: HP Virtual Room installation on RHEL 6 x64

As a workaround I installed ubuntu 11 in a virtual box VM, installed the desktop and tried to run. The room did not kick start when going through the test page... But the window came when I ran the app by itself.

Worked fine in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS though!

Also, on my main os it was the x64 version I used: hpvirtualrooms-install64-3868.tar.gz

Re: HP Virtual Room installation on RHEL 6 x64

Hi Johan,

Generally when a binary is not running well , do
ldd .

to see the dependencies .

glib actually is the gtk library (non gui portion), messing up , changing that will break lot of other applications.

It there is no straight forward way to fix your issue , some general suggestions
a)Get a file system structure with required
libraries and do a chroot into that
and try to run your app.

b) Get the required libc sources and get it compiled ( do not install!) . Then by modifying $LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the new library you can get it running. Or try getting the binary and setting $LD_LIBRARAY_PATH

(c) what you have done is the easiest solution , get a vm with required setup working !

Hope that something in my rambling is of some use to you :) .

Re: HP Virtual Room installation on RHEL 6 x64

Hello!

Thanks for that, that's a great cli command!

I think I will keep running it in a VM.
Glad I didn't proceed further down that list of libs to install.

Maybe somebody else will find this useful, HP's vroom page was not so clear about this.
