Installation problem - Failed to get version

Post by tullis » August 21st, 2008, 2:32 pm


I am trying to install the tarball version of the sesam server, to a SLES10-SP2 x86 machine.

I know that there are RPMs but I'd rather use the tarball.

Installation fails at an early stage.
If anyone can shed any light on it, I'd be grateful.

Many thanks,
Ben Tullis

Hi there.

The installation still fails, but it extracts the files and I can force an install after that.

Code: Select all

/opt/sesam/bin/sesam/sm_setup make_srv -v 2 -o bin=/opt/sesam
This is the same for both the server and the client, 64 and 32 bit.
