Installing Notes 9 Beta on Linux Mint 14 64 bit

2012/12/17

Notes from the install:

First this error:
Setting up ibm-notes (9.0-20121208.0914) …
cat: /opt/ibm/notes/framework/rcp/systemdata/logs/rcplauncher.log: No such file or directory
cat: /tmp/rcplauncher.log: No such file or directory
/var/lib/dpkg/info/ibm-notes.postinst: line 165: /opt/ibm/notes/jvm/bin/javaw: No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing ibm-notes (–configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 99
Errors were encountered while processing:
ibm-notes
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Remedy:

I used nano to comment out this whole section:

nano /var/lib/dpkg/info/ibm-notes.postinst

#  if [ -f “$1/rcp/collectionutility.jar” ]; then
#    func_installLog “– Running collector with the following command:”
#    func_installLog “– $COLLECTORCOMMAND”
#    $COLLECTORCOMMAND
#  fi

Then this:

Errors were encountered while processing:

Remedy:

ln -s /opt/ibm/notes /opt/ibm/lotus

mkdir -p /opt/ibm/notes/framework/rcp/systemdata/logs/

touch /opt/ibm/notes/framework/rcp/systemdata/logs/rcplauncher.log

Then this:

Remedy:

touch /tmp/rcplauncher.log

Then this:

Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

No hint at all?

I checked for logfiles:

cat /tmp/rcp_install.log

And the folder /opt/ibm/notes/framework/rcp/systemdata/logs/ looks like this:

logs # ls -laFtr
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Dec 17 12:35 ../
-rw-r–r– 1 root root    0 Dec 17 12:35 rcplauncher.log
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec 17 12:35 ./

I am stuck. Luckily I have since earlier installed notes on another installation of Linux Mint 14. Here the upgrade from earlier notes version went fine.

[Update]

sudo apt-get install libgnomeprint2.2-0:i386 libgnomeprintui2.2-0:i386 libgnomevfs2-bin:i386 libgnome2-0:i386 libgnomeui-0:i386

Now it is running :-)
