Suse Linux 9 How-to

Recommended Posts

Hi All...




In case any of you are having troubles running the Retrospect Client on SUSE Linux 9, here's a little how-to for ya. It worked for me, anyway:




1. Download and run the tarball installer script for the Red Hat Linux Retrospect


Client (**not** the RPM version).


2. When the installation completes, the installer informs you of its


inability to start the Retrospect Client daemon.


3. Copy the "init.d" file from the rc.d folder to the the Dantz folder:




cp /etc/rc.d/init.d /usr/local/dantz/client/




4. Delete the "rcl" file from the Dantz Client folder:




rm /usr/local/dantz/client/rcl




5. Delete the "init.d" file from the rc.d folder:




rm /etc/rc.d/init.d




6. Create a new folder in /etc/rc.d and name it init.d:




mkdir /etc/rc.d/init.d




7. Copy the "init.d" file in the Dantz folder to the init.d folder in /etc/rc.d:




cp /usr/local/dantz/client/init.d /etc/rc.d/init.d




8. Rename the copied version of "init.d" in /etc/rc.d to "rcl":




cd /etc/rc.d


mv /etc/rc.d/init.d/init.d /etc/rc.d/init.d/rcl




The full path to rcl should look like this:








9. Re-run the tarball installer. The Retrospect client should now start up correctly.


10. Reboot the Suse Linux box. The client should start up at system boot.
