Novell Groupwise 7 client on Ubuntu Dapper

Thanks these instructions:

I got GroupWise 7 working by doing the following:
  • Use alien to convert the RPM to a DEB file (alien groupwise-blah-blah-blah.rpm)
  • Install JAVA (download it from http://java.sun.com)
  • Install GroupWise (dpkg -i groupwise-blah-blah-blah.deb)
  • Delete the /opt/novell/groupwise/client/jre directory
  • Copy the jre directory from the Java installation you just performed to /opt/novell/groupwise/client/
  • Run groupwise by typing /opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise.sh
Don’t use /opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise. That won’t work. You have to use the groupwise.sh file.

Hope this helps.

NOTES: I modified the instructions in the following way:

1. I symlinked my sun java directory into the /opt/novell dir:


s@mycomp:/opt/novell/groupwise/client$ sudo mv jre/ old_jre
s@mycomp:/opt/novell/groupwise/client$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/j2sdk1 .4-sun/jre/ jre

I now have Groupwise 7 running on Ubuntu Dapper.
