Install Networker client on Centos7

Hi,

I try to install networker client V 8.2.1-1on a Centos 7 Linux server. GLIBC is installed as you can see in the attachment. But the installation of lgtclnt fails on dependencies on GLIBC stuff.

All ideas are welcome.

Make sure that you have internet connection, use 'yum' and all necessary packages will automatically be downloaded and installed.

Hi Johan,

the 64-bit version is installed, please try to install the 32-bit Version: glibc-2.17-106.el7.i686.rpm.

Michael

Re: Install Networker client on Centos7

Hi,

have you tried to install it with yum?

I don't know if all the dependencies above are GLIBC components (libm.so.6 for example).

You can check all dependencies with yum deplist package.rpm

Yum will also install all necessary dependencies:

yum localinstall --nogpgcheck package.rpm


Hope that helps.

Re: Install Networker client on Centos7

Hi bingo,

sometimes the yum approach can't be used.

  1. Sometimes no internet connectivity is possible/available.
  2. yum might install the latest 32-bit glibc package and afterwards upgrade the 64-bit version to the same release as the 32-bit glibc package. this is fine in any lab / test environment. But often not allowed in productive environments.

Regards

Michael

Re: Install Networker client on Centos7

Compatibility guide states following:

Centos Support - Note that RPM based distributions based on a 2.6 kernel and having a glibc of 2.3.3 and higher shall be supported

It is also easily possible that i686 package is needed - I normally have local yum server and it takes care of these things (but do not run CentOS to see what exactly is needed as in your case).
