How to install HP PSP for Linux

I am newbie to linux, I want to deploy system management on my ML350 G5. I Installed CentOS 5 on that server. Then I run the PSP intalller from smart start CD. Unfortunately I got some error messages that I attached to this post.

Please somebody help me to make this work fine.
Thank you in advance.

Re: How to install HP PSP for Linux

PSP is not detecting the required directory as your kernel version is newer than the searched by the installer script:

>>> Please install the RPM package for the 2.6.18-53.1.14.el5 kernel source code

You should install kernel-devel and kernel-headers for the 1.6.18-53.1.14.el5 kernel, or try installing the 2.6.18-53.1.19.el5 kernel package.

Your problem is that you have a kernel version installed, and different kernel devel versions (kernel .14 and devel .19). Ensure you match both of them.

Re: How to install HP PSP for Linux

The PSP only supports certain releases - and I think you'll find if you look in the install script, CENTOS isn't one of them.

I'm intrigued by this bit in your posting:

[root@devel linux]# cat /etc/redhat-release

CentOS release 5 (Final)



[root@devel linux]# cat /etc/redhat-release

Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 5

Assuming this is the same machine, did you try and fool the PSP into installing by changing the contents of /etc/redhat-release?

Although CENTOS is *based* on RedHat, maybe it's different enough to cause the PSP install script to not work as expected?

Just a thought.....

Re: How to install HP PSP for Linux

Hi Ivan,

Thank you for the magic reply. Your suggestion absolutely work. I chosen to replace my devel and headers package to 2.6.18-53.14.el5.rpm. And so far everything work fine. HURRAY....You seem very experienced in this chapter.

Hi Colin,

I think we should have "INTRIGUE" mind to work in open platform like LINUX. I learn it in linux's forums, how they solve their problem. Even I was newbie to Linux, but I always find what I should do to solve my Linux in any forum. BTW I appreciate you to willing to reply the post.

Thank you all.

Re: How to install HP PSP for Linux

The solution is to make kernel and devel package in the same version and dont forget to modify /etc/redhat-release. CentOS is a clone of redhat comercial distro.
