Pinned topic Power Linux SDK Dependencies

‏2013-08-28T20:57:31Z |

Trying to install the SDK for RHEL6.

Failing to install because it cannot find:

kernel-ppc64-debuginfo is needed by ibm-sdk-lop-stp-sles-1.3.1-1.ppc64

Why is it griping about "sles" ???

What do I really need?  Where do I download it?

    Hi,

    The ibm-sdk-lop-stp-rhel (RHEL only) and ibm-sdk-lop-stp-sles (SLES) packages are optional, needed only if you wan to use certain SDK capabilities like SystemTap or IO monitoring of pthread applications (Trace Analyzer), otherwise you may skip their package installation safely.

    The ibm-sdk-lop package is the main package.

    Have you tried to install the packages via 1) manual download or, 2) using PowerLinux YUM repository? If you've been using 2) then it may have a problem with the repositor ybecause yum isn't suppose to fetch ibm-sdk-lop-stp-sles (SLES only package) to your system. Please, let me know if it's the case.

    For reference, the SDK user guide: http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/lnxinfo/v3r0m0/index.jsp?topic=%2Fliaal%2Fiplsdkmain.htm

    Then don't try to install ibm-sdk-lop-stp-sles-1.3.1-1.ppc64.

    if you had read the Install & Use Tab from the landing page: http://www-304.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/lopdiags/sdkinstall.html

    Or the installation instructions on http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/lnxinfo/v3r0m0/index.jsp?topic=%2Fliaal%2Fiplsdkintro.htm you would know:

    "The simplest method for downloading and installing the RPMs for the IBM® Software Development Kit for PowerLinux™ server development package is to use the PowerLinux Software Repository. This method configures yum and zypper, allowing for automatic download and installation. Using the repository speeds the installation because the installer can install all the required RPMs, in the correct order."

    So just install the Yum init package from http://www-304.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/lopdiags/yum.html

    then

    yum install ibm-sdk-lop

    I think the previous two answers are more to the point answering your direct need, but I thought I'd add in, as a fellow RHEL POWER user, that the debuginfo packages come in a separate channel to which you must subscribe your machines if you need them. If you (or somebody in your IT department) are running a satellite for updates, that channel will have to be imported first.

      Good suggestion. The upcoming SDK user guide update is going to state on how to grab the kernel debuginfo from the properly channels.
