GroupWise on openSUSE 10.3

If you get a java error from the GroupWise client on openSUSE 10.3, here is q&d solution to fix it.

edit /opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise
add the bold export line

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/novell/groupwise/client/jre/lib/i386:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}
/opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise-bin "$@"

Apart from this, two fallback packages need to be installed to ensure the html renderer works, among other things.
These are:

  • gtk (this is version 1.2.x)
  • glib (also version 1.2.x)

After this, it should work nicely.

Now for the 64.000,- dollar question.

A form of iFolder client that works with 10.3 and works with 3.2 server (OES-Linux version 1).

Will give cookies, if it's really elegant I'll throw in some milk.


No Pressure. Gonna update to OES2-linux soon anyways :)

Sweet... that worked!

Unfortunately, now I get the box that says "Connecting" up, but it never prompts me for a server or password...
