I got this error when trying to run:

groupwise /opt/novell/groupwise/bin/groupwise-bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

so in /usr/bin/groupwise I changed

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/gwclient:/usr/lib/jvm/default-runtime/lib/i386/client/


export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/gwclient:/usr/lib32/jvm/java32-6-jre/jre/lib/i386/client/

and it seems like everything is working.

rafaeiff, I'm suggesting just using bsdtar instead of calling a useless wrapper script that adds an extra dependency.

Scimmia: I only know how to extract RPM files with rpm2cpio or rpmextract (which uses rpm2cpio + bsdtar), both scripts provided by 'rpmextract' package. What implementation do you suggest using only bsdtar?

Scimmia commented on 2016-11-22 02:37

Why is this using rpmextract (nearly useless) instead of bsdtar directly? The latter is already used by makepkg, so no extra makedep needed?

Not to mention the strange way rpmextract is being called.

I've got problem with starting GW:
# Problematic frame:
# C [] __lll_unlock_elision+0x20

I have Intel CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1240 v3 @ 3.40GHz
and I have installed microcode (and I've checked if it is loaded).

Is there any chance that I can run GroupWise without recompiling lib32-glibc with `--disable-lock-elision` ?

Good the "hear" that. I added you as comaintainer anyway.

debugrr commented on 2016-03-14 20:31

microcode fixed the '--disable-lock-elision' requirement for me. So no need to upload a package.

debugrr commented on 2016-03-14 19:24

You can definitely add me to the comaintainer list.

apparently my trouble with lib32-glibc is an issue with the haswell microcode.

I'll try to fix that.. so I don't have to keep recompiling lib32-glibc

@debugrr, feel free to upload. Would you also want to comaintain the gwclient PKGBUILD so you can make desired adaptations?
