    Hi All,

    can anybody describe how to install FMS on Debian? Or just post some external links. I have searched the Net but didnt found anything suitable, i have tried to force install it, it installs OK, but does not want to run complaining that it can not find the needed libraries.

    Its a library HELL :eek:

    Thanks in advance!!!

    I've installed the FMS2 on several Debian Edge systems, and it was not really a hard thing to do.
    I did take notes on how I did this, but do not have access to them untill sometime next week. (it's on an other PC)

    Ping me next week, and I will post the install instructions for you.

    Hi,

    unfortunately i have no time to wait, the client sits on my neck, making stress... I have managed to install the FMS, but i still get an error when trying to start the server:

    Code:
    ./adminserver start
    Starting Adobe Flash Media Admin Server (please check /var/log/messages)
    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/messages
    Apr  8 11:16:43 hostname Service[25750]: Server starting...
    ps auxw does not give back any sign that the server is running...
    when trying to stop it i get an error:

    Code:
    ./adminserver stop
    Stopping Adobe Flash Media Admin Server (please check /var/log/messages)
    fmsadmin: no process killed
    fmsadmin: no process killed
    ./shmrd: relocation error: ./shmrd: symbol regexec, version GLIBC_2.3.4 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference

    These are the steps i have performed while installing the server:
    Code:
    apt-get install libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2 libnspr4
    Code:
    cd /usr/lib
    ln -s libcrypto.so.0.9.7 libcrypto.so.4
    ln -s libssl.so.0.9.7 libssl.so.4
    Code:
    ./installFMS -platformWarnOnly
    Code:
     ----------- Install Action Summary -----------
     Installation directory         = /usr/local/macromedia/fms

     FMS run as daemon              = Yes
     Start FMS                      = Yes
    Code:
    update-rc.d fms defaults
    Any help is highly appreciated!

    This is what I get when stopping FMS
    And staring the server.
    The '/var/log/messages' looks like this.
    and ps auxw | grep fms

    Sorry again.. I still do not have access to my notes.

    Not sure if it's still needed, but this is how I did the install on Debian Etch (and FMS2 is working fine)

    Code:
    ./installFMS -platformWarnOnly
    I got an error that libstdc was missing, so I did an
    Code:
    apt-get install libstdc++5
    After this I restarterd the install with './installFMS -platformWarnOnly', and answerd all the install questions.

    When the install finished I needed to install some extra things:
    Code:
    apt-get install libnspr4-dev
    apt-get install libssl0.9.7
    Then I created some needed symbolic links for libssl and libcrypto.
    Code:
    cd /usr/lib
    ln -s libssl.so.0.9.7 libssl.so.4
    ln -s libcrypto.so.0.9.7 libcrypto.so.4
    And started FMS2 with:
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/fms start
