Installation of sudo, library issue

Hi,

 

I have installed sudo from http://hpux.connect.org.uk/

When I try to run it, I get the error :

/usr/lib/hpux32/dld.so: Unable to find library 'libintl.so'.

 

Sudo requires gettext, libiconv and zlib. gettext and libiconv were already installed (probably came with the server), zlib was installed from http://hpux.connect.org.uk/

 

I could install  gettext and libiconv also from http://hpux.connect.org.uk/ getting all the stuff in /usr/local, but could the two versions on the same server give problems?

 

Any other ideas are most welcome.

 

HP-UX B.11.31 U ia64 on rx2660.

Thanks /Hans

Yes, unless these packages are strictly forward compatible as is HP-UX.  Or they use shlib versioning.

OK - thanks, but what do you do then, if you need to get a common utility like Sudo to work on the HP-UX?

Make sure all of your opensource tools use the same versions of the runtime.

Ok, yes - perhaps not quite as easy as it sounds...

 

Thanks for taking the time to answer, I ended up using HP Internet Express, it was much easier IMO, Sudo is working now.

SCHK, sudo is available in ixexpress at the HP Software depot home "https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/index.do".

 

It's free of charge and works without going through compiling open systems software. It is however, unsupported.

 

If you are using 11.23 or newer, HP has an RBAC solution that you can use instead of sudo and it is supported.  It takes a little getting use to, but is better than sudo once you get it all configured the way you want.

Thanks Ken, and as I wrote, I got the ixexpress version of Sudo op and running last week.

I read abut the RBAC, and it is surely a comprehensive and convincing piece of software. For now, we have only sporadic need for these facilities. If demands rise, I now know where to get a supported solution.

Thanks again for pointing me to this.
