An alternative to the wizard for Linux and Solaris (Unix) systems is use an RPM package. RPM stands for RedHat Package Manager. This is a common way to distribute Linux packages and is also supported on Solaris.
The RPM file you need is called ‘lrgs-6.1-0.i386.rpm’. This file can be found on the Executables page. The installation must be run as root with
the following command:
rpm -ivh lrgs-6.1-0.i386.rpm
This will install the package in the directory /usr/opt/LRGS with ownership and group both set to ‘lrgs’.
If you install LRGS in this fashion you may want to modify the configuration to store the large archive files in some other location with ample disk space. This is the same RPM you use for Solaris Sparc. You must provide the argument to RPM to force it to ignore the architecture designation in the file ‘i386’
Once the rpm package has been installed, there are a number of post-installation tasks that need to be completed for operations. They are listed here.
