New to Ubuntu. Can't install FlexRAID
« on: November 21, 2012, 05:26:33 pm »
I was initially planning on running my FlexRAID on Ubuntu, but it turns out to be quite a hassle :P
I've downloaded the .bin file, and i have followed every method i can find online to install a .bin file from the Terminal.
My problem boils down to "No such file or directory" which i get from every single command i try to install the file with.
So i googled the problem, and i belive the error lies with my 64-bit verision trying to run a 32-bit program. So i try to solve that problem, and "the solution is simple" it tells me.
following the guide from http://www.edmondscommerce.co.uk/ubuntu/ubuntu-no-such-file-or-directory-when-it-does-exist-solution/
i enter the "apt-get......ia32-libs" command and again i get an error. Translating from my norwegian Ubuntuverision it says something like:

E: Could not open lockfile /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Could not lock the administrative folder (/var/lib/dpkg/). Are you root?

From this point i am kinda stuck. Is there any simpler way to installing .bin files? Any programs i can use?
Remember im new to Linux, so use simple terminology when explaining things ;)
Thanks!

Hi,

I just installed on Ubuntu 12.04 using this guide. Works fine. Substitute current versions in filename/path.

@Valkyria
Sounds to me that your OS is hardened and that you need the right permissions to install.

Some systems need to install the following dependencies: http://wiki.flexraid.com/2011/11/09/linux-error-lib-load-error-nativeio/

However, your issues are purely permission related.

You need to be typing in sudo before your 'apt-get':

john@Server:/var/lib/flexraid$ apt-get install test
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

sudo apt-get install ______

apt-get needs resources that are root level access and sudo will give the command those rights.

The link Kryspy (above) listed is the same one I used, should set you up.

I've tried following the guide here and get the following error:

--2012-11-28 17:22:57--  http://download.openegg.org/temp/beta/FlexRAID-2.0-Public-Beta7.bin
Resolving download.openegg.org (download.openegg.org)... 173.236.179.34

HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
2012-11-28 17:22:57 ERROR 404: Not Found.


Either with the version in the guide or the latest.

Everything else went OK up till that point.

I have a copy of FlexRAID-2.0-Final_u11.bin I downloaded, how would I install this instead of the beta versions?
That awful moment when you realise after making your first post that you misspelt your user name :(

Same guide, just use that file you downloaded in place of the other...

Once we've downloaded the file we need to make it executable:

chmod a+x FlexRAID-2.0-Final_u11.bin

Now we need to run the executable to install it. NOTE: During the installation process you will be asked for an installation directory to use. Please use /var/lib/flexraid which we created above.

./FlexRAID-2.0-Final_u11.bin

Now we've finished with the executable we can delete it:

rm FlexRAID-2.0-Final_u11.bin


Your just running it as an install program in shell...
