This HMRC software used to work on 12.3 with the addition of a library file. I am now trying to install and run on 13.2 on 64 bit machine. The software explicitly is not supported on 64 bit system so I shall have to install 32 bit library files. I asked HMRC IT support for help and they have replied as follows:-
Please note that you carry out these steps entirely at their own risk and you may wish to contact your own IT support before following them.
You may wish to begin by previewing the potential changes to your system in safe mode to check if they will have any undesired results:
Being unsure about apt-get on rpm based system I thought I would install the libraries using Yast but some are not in the repos I am using. Before I mess up please could somebody advise best way forward.
If I select the 32 bit pattern in yast it does not appear to download anything. I had assumed it would review my libraries and select 32 bit equivalents. Clearly not.
More important, the lib file libcomerr2 is to enable communication with M$ and if I google this together with opensuse I get huts but nothing comes up in yast. How do I find the necessary repo and install on my system to get this on yast?
I don’t think the 32 bit pattern installs all 32 bit packages just the normal ones at the install of the OS. So if you need specific 32 bit you need to do the search as I described. In yast search for the package then select the 32 bit version. Note you can also in the search check the provides and description boxes in case the library is part of a bigger package. Note also that it may be that a specific library is simply not provided in the main repos so try a search here
Hi and thanks again. Sadly I had this running on 12.2 but the most important library, libcomerr2 is no longer available on openSUSE sites, only Ubuntu and Debian.
I hope somebody will get round to sorting this out but sadly HMG are only timid supporters of Linux.
Many many thanks. Once again I am in your debt. Spent an hour on google but couldn’t find it. There are a couple of other files I couldn’t find;
If you have any ideas on these it would complete my set. Meanwhile will try and run RTI Tools again.
PS. Tried again and still received error message:-
Is this a missing library or a 32 bit issue as program only runs on 32 bit.
Hi and many thanks. I found and installed cyrus, the krb5 was laready installed but couldn’t find libcrypt20. I already have libgcrypt20-32bit but could only find libcrypto30-32bit and tried it but still getting the same error message. Do you have this HMRC software running on your system?
