    Avid Nexis Client install on Linux: Debian 'Wheezy' System

    Hello forum

    Just wondering if anyone has done this or similar. Basically hoping to get an 'aptitude' repository installer for Ubuntu/Debian type systems. This is currently for use with Forscene Cloud systems - which run off this operating system. 

    Anyone out there any ideas as we're struggling with the Red-Hat style binary installer

    Thanks in advance

    Jake

    Hi Jake & Forum

    Just a note to say, I guess I've pretty much reached the same point as you with Ubuntu. The .bin installer is (I guess for Red Hat). Ubuntu looks like it wants a .deb package.

     

    Thanks in advance, Scott

    The NEXIS Client officially supports Redhat 6.5 but we have customers use other distributions of Linux.

    We've added several install switches so the Linux v7 client to make it easier to install. The general issue we see for the installer to fail is the version of FUSE. You can bypass this by installing the client only.

    -h Output this usage message and exit"
    -b Bypass ABA benchmark agent installation"
    -c Bypass Avid NEXIS Client installation"
    -f Bypass FUSE kmod installation"
    -l Bypass FUSE library installation"
    -m Bypass Myricom driver installation"
    -B Perform only ABA benchmark agent installation"
    -C Perform only Avid NEXIS Client installation"
    -F Perform only FUSE kmod installation"
    -L Perform only FUSE library installation"
    -M Perform only Myricom driver installation"

    It is also possible to setup the ISIS v4.7 File Gateway and share the workspaces via CIFS and FTP. You'll have to install the 4.7 File Gateway from the kit and then uninstall the 4.7 client (and not restart) and install the NEXIS 7 client.

    Re: Avid Nexis Client install on Linux: Debian 'Wheezy' System

    Bob, thank you for the fast reply.

    I'm approaching this project myself, a little bit blind, with as much guidance as I can muster from the web.

    I've done:

    chmod a+x AvidNEXISClient_el6.x86_64_6.2.2_90.bin

    ./AvidNEXISClient_el6.x86_64_6.2.2_90.bin

    The computer generates the following line of text

    Unpacking installer and running setup...

    ./setup-avidfos: 24: ./setup-avidfos: Syntax error "(" unexpected.

    First part of the question, where do I attach the switch?

    Secondly from what I've listed, am I going in the right direction?

    Again thanks,

    Scott

    I've only ever installed the client on RedHat and CentOS 6.5, so I can't speak for the how it will behave with another version of Linux.

    The switch is added after the file name: I.E. /AvidNEXISClient_el6.x86_64_7.1.0_125.bin -C

    Re: Avid Nexis Client install on Linux: Debian 'Wheezy' System

    Hi,

    I've installed the NexisClient on CentOS 6.5, however the manual says to type -C -m but it is not possible to combine both arguments (the -C and the -m). So I typed only the -C but it seems it broked my network configuration… Now, how can I uninstall the mirycom and FUSE Components which I guess are the ones causing this issue? Or, how can I check if they are installed?

    Thanks in advance

    Regards

     

    EDIT: Found how to install it properly, Avid should correct this in the manual. So it should be typed -C && -m

    EDIT2: No, it won't run the -m parameter… any clues?

    Could you post this question to a new thread? The title being about Debian is off topic.

    What exact version of the client is being used?

    Thanks for your support. Not sure how to move this post Bob. Good news for us, The forscene Crew found a Debian installer or at least hacked the red hat one and got it working! They do definitely have some Debian packaged installers so they must be available somewhere . Maybe try contacting Forscene.net they can be pretty helpful
