Lotus Notes 8.5 on Fedora 10 x86_64

32-bit packages required for notes 8.5 to work on Fedora 10 x86_64. Notes will install fine without these but will not run.

libxkbfile-1.0.4-5.fc9.i386
libgnomecanvas-2.20.1.1-4.fc10.i386
libgnomeprint22-2.18.5-1.fc10.i386
libgnomeprintui22-2.18.3-1.fc10.i386
gnome-vfs2-2.24.0-3.fc10.i386
libgnome-2.24.1-9.fc10.i386
libgnomeui-2.24.0-2.fc10.i386
libXScrnSaver-1.1.3-1.fc10.i386
libcanberra-gtk2-0.10-3.fc10.i386
gtk-nodoka-engine-0.7.2-1.fc10.i386

Of course installing these also carries a lot of dependency baggage.

And a handy one liner:
sudo yum -y install libxkbfile-1.0.4-5.fc9.i386 libgnomecanvas-2.20.1.1-4.fc10.i386 libgnomeprint22-2.18.5-1.fc10.i386 libgnomeprintui22-2.18.3-1.fc10.i386 gnome-vfs2-2.24.0-3.fc10.i386 libgnome-2.24.1-9.fc10.i386 libgnomeui-2.24.0-2.fc10.i386 libXScrnSaver-1.1.3-1.fc10.i386 libcanberra-gtk2-0.10-3.fc10.i386

Thank for the one liner. It seems to 'almost' work for me. I now get a message saying
"Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "nodoka","

What would I have to install to get nodoka installed?

This is what i have currently.
rpm -qa | grep nod
nodoka-theme-gnome-0.3.90-2.fc10.noarch
nodoka-filesystem-0.3.90-2.fc10.noarch
nodoka-metacity-theme-0.3.90-2.fc10.noarch
gtk-nodoka-engine-0.7.2-1.fc10.x86_64
notification-daemon-engine-nodoka-0.1.0-3.fc10.x86_64

I have a similar output, not sure what is missing:

[taden@taden bin]$ rpm -qa | grep nod
notification-daemon-engine-nodoka-0.1.0-3.fc10.x86_64
nodoka-filesystem-0.3.90-2.fc10.noarch
monodoc-2.0-5.fc10.x86_64
nodoka-metacity-theme-0.3.90-2.fc10.noarch
gtk-nodoka-engine-0.7.2-1.fc10.x86_64
[taden@taden bin]$

Just installed 'ibm support assistant' and got a similar error about "nodaka". I searched the repos using yum for nodaka but came up with no results but I did eventually find a package called "gtk-nodoka-engine-0.7.2-1.fc10.i386", installed that using yum and that fixed that error.

Have you tried lotus notes 8.5.1 with fedora 12 x86_64

Nate said...

No, for F12 I dropped back down to the 686 kernel, but you might try using yum localinstall to pick up dependencies:

yum localinstall ibm_lotus_*.rpm --nogpgcheck

Once you get it installed run the binary from the command line and look for errors indicating missing files, take those files and run them through yum whatprovides:

yum whatprovides */libname.so

and install the i686 version of the indicated package.

Hope it works for you!
