Weekly Buzz - Novell NetWare - Installing eDirectory 8.7 On Linux


If you want to install eDirectory 8.7 on a Linux server, you might run into a problem where the installation hangs. If so, check the version of the Linux JVM. You'll encounter the problem if you JVM is version 1.4.1, but not if it-s 1.4.0 A workaround for JVM 1.4.1 is to change the installation scripts to add a 1-millisecond delay between each of the package installations. Note that Novell is working on a fix for this problem which might be available at a later date.
