    Default Novell Client and OpenSUSE 11.1


    Anyone know of a way to get the Novell client to work in openSUSE?

    When I try to install the Novell Client beta for openSUSE 11.0 it's
    telling me nothing provides libbfd-2.18.50.2008040-11.1.so, which is
    needed by novell-xtier-base-3.1..6-8.i586.

    Anyone have a solution for this?

    Andy

    At the moment they are working on releasing the version for 11.0 :
    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=405057

    Are you using this public beta? 'NOVELL: Downloads - Novell Client for
    Linux 2.0 SP1 for OpenSUSE 11 - Public Beta'
    (http://download.novell.com/Download?...d=N848u3D7BjQ~)

    I don't expect them to start work on the 11.1 Novell client until the
    11.0 is final.

    Often you can get away with linking with the older required library
    name to a newer file version... but with this client big chance you'll
    hit a snag with other requirements.

    You could use ncpfs as alternative? It should work fine if you only
    want to attach to the filesystem.

    Cheers,
    Wj

    ncpfs has a 2 GB file size limit, which is an issue with me, because I
    am moving large Windows XP zmgs over. I guess I'll need to stick to
    SLED 10 SP2.
