Just wanted to drop a quick note to thank those who have worked on this client. Usually people only post problems, but I wanted this post to be different. I wish you continued success with your project, even though I haven't been able to get a version installed since 3.0.3 and now I can't even get that one to work without a bunch of dependency errors. But since Linux is not my primary OS, I can live with it.

What version of Linux are you running? if you're trying to use my binary rpms, you should be running Red Hat Linux 9. If you're running some other RPM based distribution, you will need to rebuild the src.rpm.

I'm running Mandrake 9 and the Redhat RPM's worked (more or less) fine prior to Logjam 4, but now I get dependency errors that I try to correct, which spawn other dependency errors and the cycle repeats. So I think it's time to accept the fact that I can't wrap my brain around Linux as easily as I did Windows. Oh well, even the mighty fall once and awhile.

Not suprising, given that the library dependencies for Red Hat Linux 9 are going to be significantly different from MDK. If you've got a compiler and -devel libs installed, its a trivial process to generate a working binary rpm for your machine. Just download the src.rpm, and run: rpmbuild --rebuild logjam-4.1.2-1.src.rpm. Then, install the binary rpms it generates.

I appreciate your help attempt, but when I try to run rpmbuild I get "command not found" even after installing a rpmbuilder successfully. I guess I'm not destined to run Logjam on this system. Thanks anyway.

Running as root?

If you're not running as root, most of the RPM tools won't work.
Best is to wrap them in an su -c command:
su -c "rpm -Uvh logjam.rpm"
IT'll then ask for the root password, run, and return you to your standard login, without risking having root stay on.

I'm about to install logjam on this new Mandrake 9.1 system; I'll report back if I see anything weird.

Re: Running as root?

I was running it from a 'su' terminal window and it still failed. *shrug* Like I said in another comment, it's probably something screwed up with how I have my system configured rather than anything wrong with the LogJam program. I only installed Mandrake as something to mess around with when I got bored with Windows. I doubt it will ever be my everyday OS. In addition to this problem, my sound card isn't supported either, so I don't see it taking over my system completely anytime in the foreseeable future.

Re: Running as root?

do a whereis rpm first, that'll tell you where it is, then run the full path, which will be something like /sbin/rpm or something different, same with rpmbuild and other commands.

Heh, that sounds like a pretty big problem to me.

Re:

Not really...it's not my primary, everyday OS...I just boot into it once and awhile because it does browse the web faster than my XP system. But I did like v3.0.3 when I was running Mandrake. It's probably more a problem with how my system is running than the program itself. But I just wanted those involved with the development that their hard work didn't go unnoticed, even though I can no longer enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Thanks, I appreciate it.


You might want to check out LogJam for windows, too...
