Install HP Virtual rooms on Fedora 16

As a partner of HP, I use their collaboration platform HP Virtual Rooms, that is also available on Red Hat Linux. As I use Fedora, I needed to install some more packages.Here is what I did

# wget https://www.rooms.hp.com/vRoom_Cab/hpvirtualrooms-install64-F4-8.0.0.4282.tar.gz

# tar -xzvf hpvirtualrooms-install64-F4-8.0.0.4282.tar.gz

# cd hpvirtualrooms-install

# ./install-hpvirtualrooms
virtualrooms-install : /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

Then I learned a cool feature of yum : you just need to enter the file that you need and yum will download and install the package that needs the file for you. For example :

# yum -y install /lib/ld-linux.so.2

So, all in all, you need to install the following packages :

# yum -y install glibc-2.14.90-24 libXi.so.6 libSM.so.6 libXi.so.6 libXrender.so.1 libXrandr.so.2 libz.so.1 libglib-2.0.so.0 libXfixes.so.3 libasound.so.2 libfontconfig.so.1 libpng12.so.0 libGLU.so.1

and then test it.

    If it still doesn’t work or you use different versions of Fedora/HP Virtual Room, run “grep virtual $HOME/.xsession-errors | grep “cannot open shared” . It will give you a list of missing libraries
