Installing ifolder on linux

I've been trying to hack through the insall instructions for ifolder
for Centos 4.3 provided by the iFolder site. The reason I say hacking
is that there seems to be a problem with the instructions on this page,

http://www.ifolder.com/index.php/HowTo:Configure_iFolder_Enterprise_Server_on_Fedora_Core_4

I can get mono installed but the command:

yum -y install ifolder3-server

I hit a brick wall, it is looking for the Centos subfolder in
http://forgeftp.novell.com/ifolder/server/3.5/current/ but there is no
(there hasn't been Centos subfolder since 20060621-0346 build from the
looks of it.)

So I tried changing the iFolderServer-CentOS.repo file to reflect tat
directory but something yum runs referrs back to current.

So how do I get around this and get the server installed?
(now, don't say "install SLES, that's like saying you don't know." 😉

Re: Installing ifolder on linux

I was trying to do the same on a fedora Core 5 box, but it seems that this software is no longer in the public domain. Now don't ask me why...

Re: Installing ifolder on linux

Sorry, I lie, your post got me looking again, it was on the back burner. try http://forgeftp.novell.com/ifolder/server/3.5/current/src/
its only the source, you'll have to compile it, but it's a start.

Re: Installing ifolder on linux

Still waiting for response, in the meantime I now cannot get YUM to
update as it now responds:

>update 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
>http://forgeftp.novell.com/ifolder/server/3.5/current/linux/CENTOS-4.3-i386/rpms/repodata/repomd.xml: >[Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found
>Trying other mirror.
>Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: iFolderServer

failure: repodata/repomd.xml from iFolderServer: [Errno 256] No more
mirrors to try.
>Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from iFolderServer: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.



Any sugestions on this and just being able to sucessfully install
iFolder would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Installing ifolder on linux

I removed the reference I was instructed to copy into YUM and got
update working ok.

> rm -rf /etc/yum.repos.d/iFolderServer-CentOS.repo


Still no iFolder but I do get my updates again. 🙂
