GroupWise client on openSUSE 10.3

0 Likes
I need to precede this post with a bunch of disclaimers. This is not a supported configuration, it has not been tested by either GroupWise or SuSE engineering and I personally have not played with it enough to see if anything else is broken, however, it is possible to get the GroupWise client running on openSUSE 10.3.

When trying to install the RPM I got a number of libXm.so.3 dependency errors, so I installed:
openmotif-libs-32bit
openmotif-libs
openmotif22-libs-32bit
openmotif22-libs
openmotif

Probably overkill, but it installed after adding all of those. Oh, and I had first added a bunch of 'community repositories' which I think these were installing from.  Once installed the GroupWise client still does not launch.

The last thing that you need to do is to modify /opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise.   On the line after the first export enter:
 export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1

The whole file now reads:
#!/bin/bash
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/novell/groupwise/client/lib:/opt/novell/groupwise/client/jre/lib/i386
export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1
/opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise-bin "$@"

Save that file and launch the client again - it should now work.

  • Alex, You say that the release date of Bonsai has been pushed from November 07, to some time in the first 6 mths of 2008.....That's really bad news.....11 Schools that I know of in Melbourne, AU are already dumping GW over Xmas and going to the Dark Side... A six month delay in shipping will only fuel others to look elsewhere as well.... despite any argument I make..... Please stick a BMW M3 engine under desk and attempt to get the release out ASAP!
