FOG on Centos 4.5



  • At work we use our own custom version of Centos 4.5 and I’ve been tasked with getting FOG running on it. I know it’s old and EOL but it’s what I’m stuck with until engineering gets around to releasing an update based on 6. I have managed to get all the way to the step “Setting up and building UDPCast…Failed! make failed!”. I have tried to manually run the make in the /tmp dir and get the error “make: *** No rule to make target udp-receiver.o', needed byudp-receiver’. Stop.” Anyone able to point me in the right direction? Thanks.

    I choose 1 for Red Hat.

    [quote=“chad-bisd, post: 10634, member: 18”]You might try installing UDPCast manually using your package manager, or just downloading it from the udpcast website and compiling it on your own, or getting a binary and see if it works on your version of Linux. If you can get udpcast setup, you can comment out the lines in the installer scripts that are trying to get it from the package manager.[/quote]

    I was able to get a binary of a newer version (20080914) but couldn’t find one for 20071228 that would run on centos 4. I installed it, then commented out the line in the install script for udpcast and now the install fails on the FOGMulticastManager. Documentation said this might happen and to just rerun the install again and it should work but it fails everytime.

    Thanks for trying to help by the way. Really appreciate it.
