I have installed on my laptop Ubuntu 8.04 x86-64 bit.
I have installed also iSeries Access iSeriesAccess-5.4.0-1.4.x86_64.rpm (with the use of allien) with success.
Unfortunatelly I do not have 5250 terminal Emultion Support.
I need this in order to log on in a shared HMC console.
I've tried with TN5250j with no success.

Re: 5250 Emulation Support on x86-64bit2008-08-21T18:05:15Z in response to SystemAdminI'm having the same issue. I installed the same version of iSeries access, iSeriesAccess-5.4.0-1.4.x86_64.rpm but I can't get an emulator started. I've tried "ibm5250" and I get the message "bash: ibm5250: command not found".
Does anybody have any ideas what I/we should try next?
Re: 5250 Emulation Support on x86-64bit2008-08-21T18:11:41Z in response to SystemAdminI just read another post and it appears that I don't have "ibm5250" in my bin64 folder under /opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/.
What would cause that to not be in there? The installer said that the package installed correctly.
Re: 5250 Emulation Support on x86-64bit2008-08-21T19:10:36Z in response to SystemAdminUnfortunately the ibm5250 is not shipped with the 64 bit RPM. I'd suggest you to request it via design change request form:
You need to request the 64 bit emulator for the System i Access for Linux package. This form will notify the right person within IBM that this functionality is required and that way will be considered in future releases.
