Pinned topic Fedora Core Install

‏2007-02-23T15:38:04Z |
I am trying to install ISeries Access for Linux on Fedora Core 4. It asks for a missing dependency call openmotif or libXm.so.3.

First of all this is very old and doesn't like to play well with the new stuff, so why use it. Secondly, everytime I try to install this it says I am missing a dependency file call /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XkeysymDB even though this file IS there.

    Re: Fedora Core Install - SOLVED

    ‏2007-02-23T21:43:16Z  
    I had to install the OpenMotif (libXm.so.4) files and then create a symbolic link from libXm.so.3 pointing to the version 4.

    Same Installation problem in openSuSE 10.2

    ‏2007-04-04T08:26:02Z  
    Same problem is happening in openSuSE 10.2. Although I have installed OpenMotif (libXm.so.4) and created a symbolic link to /usr/lib/libXm.so.3, installation still doesn't continue and asking for libXm.so.3. Any suggestions ?

    iSeriesAccess runs well under openSUSE 10.2 - let's check where your installation is faulty:

    Could you please post the result of:
    ls -l /usr/lib/libXm.so*
    (as root)

    as well as:
    rpm -qa | grep openmotif
    (as root)

    Thanks,

    Greg

    I've got the same issue on FC5. Here's my output:

    root@io lib# ls -l /usr/lib/libXm.so*
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Apr 23 11:06 /usr/lib/libXm.so.3 -> libXm.so.4
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Apr 23 11:05 /usr/lib/libXm.so.4 -> libXm.so.4.0.0
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2599496 Jun 22 2006 /usr/lib/libXm.so.4.0.0

    root@io ~# rpm -qa |grep openmotif
    openmotif-2.3.0-0.1.9.3
    I've tried the symlink to both libXm.so.4.0.0 and as above. Still, on the rpm install, I'm getting the dependency failure on libXm.so.3

    Ignore the dependency during installation. The program itself will run just fine with the symlink as you've described it. At least it does under SuSE 10.2.

    Good luck!

    in case you dont know how to ignore a dependency, just

    rpm --nodeps -ivh myrpm.rpm

    If you still have problems after doing so, let us know,

    I have Mandriva 2007 installed and I get the dependency error as well.
    When I run the command "ls -l /usr/lib/libXm.so*" I get the reply "No such file or directory." Am I missing something fundamental to install iSeries Access for Linux?

    Thanks.

    Please read the previous posts. You need openmotif toolkit.
