    Default Has any one successfuly got Novell Messenger or Groupwise working on Opensuse 12.3/13.1 ?

    Hello everyone,

    I know Novell Products aren't technically supported with Opensuse but when i was on 11.4 I had no issues running Groupwise and Novell Messenger. I was wondering if anyone has successfully been able to install either of these on Opensuse 12.3 or 13.1? Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers!

    The client? I have both the GW Linux client and messenger (I think)
    installed on 12.2 (not 12.3).

    IIRC, the only trick to installing the RPM was that there's a dependency
    that needs to be fulfilled - a windowing toolkit (looking at the
    dependencies, I don't see which one, though - but the message given by
    the rpm command when trying to install was very clear about what was
    needed).

    Yes, and a bug was recently updated to help fix this with one of the
    openSUSE RPMs. It took a bit of dependency hacking because of RPM
    definition issues on the GW client side, but it can work. Have specific
    errors? openSUSE 12.3 with all patches?

    Good luck.

    You probably should be asking this in the beta forum, then - we can move
    the thread if you'd like.

    I was able to successfully add all dependencies, but the issue I now have with the Groupwise client is when i open an email the application closes. very odd. Any suggestions?
    I went to check logs under, /opt/novell/groupwise/client/logs/ but no logs were generated when closing. Could this be a Java issue?

    Oh when i try to install the Novell Messenger by using ./nvlmsgr.bin command, I get this

    Extracting files, please wait...tail: cannot open ‘+36’ for reading: No such file or directory


    gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    Failed to extract the client files.


    Not sure where to go from here.

    Run from the command line with debugging:

    Code:
    ----------
    bash -xv /path/to/startup/script
    ----------

    Good luck.

    Sorry, here comes the major noob in me, where is that script on 13.1? Drawing a complete blank right now for some reason.

    Same as in any version of Linux:

    Code:
    ----------
    `which grpwise`
    ----------

    Note that those are backticks... not single-quotes.

    Good luck.
