Hi all.. I have HP dl 380 G5 server with Debian 5.0 installed. I need to install Hp Support Pack on it so i can do a hardware monitoring of the server in Zenoss. Can you help me ,I'm not a linux expert?

Re: Install HP Support Pack on Debian HP DL 380 G5 ?

hmm, do you already have some HP psp installed? Try to remove them first.
anyway, debian probably is not supported in such good way then RH or Suse...

probably post this question into linux itrc forum.

Hey there,

Seems like you skipped the installation instructions ;)

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=1121516&swItem=MTX-aa33f3378fc04981981e73c5a6&prodNameId=3288134&swEnvOID=4033&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=1

Bottom line is, you're doing it wrong, you first add the cdrom with apt-cdrom add then continue the installation using apt-get install .

Hope that helps!

Hi...

You'are right, I didn't see the installation ins :) But, i did apt-cdrom add , and then apt-get install hp-health with the same error:

The following NEW packages will be installed:
hp-health
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/574kB of archives.
After this operation, 1700kB of additional disk space will be used.

I see the dependancy problem in inst. instructions ,

apt-get install lib32gcc1
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package lib32gcc1 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package lib32gcc1 has no installation candidate

What i need to do ,please help

Re: Install HP Support Pack on Debian HP DL 380 G5 ?

A couple of things:

- The PSP is also available the Software Delivery Repository ( http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR )

- for that dependency, I believe you'd want to install the ia32-libs package, which may be either done interactively, or via "apt-get -f install" (assuming you have network access to your debian mirror repositories)
