I recently had to reinstall my system because
I chose to ignore smartd's emails nagging me about unrecoverable
errors a bit too long.
The system disk that inevitably died
before I could grab an image provided me with an opportunity to install
the latest & greates Ubuntu LTS release (16.04), and yes, I know, Ubuntu
(server) is not a supported platform.
How hard can it be right? Install OS,
install Domino, Traveler and fix packs, been there, done that etc.
Well... I got as far as installing Domino
9.0.1 and Traveler 9.0.1 and then things got interesting.

Download the installer from Partnerworld/Passport
Advantage andunpack into a temp directory.
Unfortunately, there are some dependency
problems on 64 bit Ubuntu Linux that prevent installation of the Notes
$ cd Downloads
$ mkdir n901
$ cd n901
$ tar -xvf ../NOTES_9.0.1_LINUX_DI_EN.tar

I thought I'd quickly upgrade my Lotus
Notes 8.5.2 client on Ubuntu Linux before going to bed, boy was I wrong.
dpkg: error processing ibm_lotus_notes_fixpack-8.5.2.i586.deb
parse error, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/control'
near line 2 package 'ibm-lotus-notes-fixpack':

Errors were encountered while processing:
Turns out that. sometime between Ubuntu
8.x and the current 10.x version, underscores have become illegal characters
according to Ubuntu's package manager.
Tags: Lotus Domino Notes 8.5.1 VMWare Server 2.0.2 64 bit Linux Ubuntu Karmic
Sofar my ride with Karmic hasn't been all
I've upgraded my server from Ubuntu
Server 8.04 (Hardy Heron) to 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) and recently to 9.10
Server (Karmic) on 64 bit and encountered a few issues, and not just with
Domino 8.5.1 - and yes I know this is not an IBM supported configuration
After the upgrade my Domino server came
up without a problem but I noticed an error message from the full text
indexer about not being able to find libstdc++.so.5
This library was replaced by the upgrade
by libstdc++.so.6 - so I ended up pulling a copy from a previous release
and adding that to /usr/lib32
Other than that sofar I haven't found
any problems with Domino.
Daniel Nashed's SpamGeek also just continues
to do it's job
I also have 64 bit VMWare Server 2.0.2
running on this server and after the upgrade the vmware modules refused
to build, fortunately I found a fix here:
I have a Windows 2003 Server VMWare
guest that started life as a physical box that I converted to a VM sometime
last year that never had any problems but ever since the upgrade (and subsequent
patch) has a tendency to die under high I/O loads. VMWare kills it (Worker#18|
Caught signal 6).
After that, it was time for my laptop
