Zoom install

I wonder if it is possible to install Zoom video conferencing software into my (full complete) LFS box. Sure, I know it is not open source, but might be some link to binaries I think. By the way I've downloaded the right tarball but it has no README nor any manual instructions. Any ideas will be appreciated.

Is there an executable in there that you can run? Maybe it is self-contained and ready to run?

If you downloaded "zoom_x86_64.tar.xz" (for "Other distributions") you just unpack it and run it in place.

It looks like this zoom distribution bundles its own library dependencies (including its own QT5) so just try running the zoom client, and see if it spits out any errors about missing shared libraries.

It looks like you'd run ./zoom but I also see a in there for running the client in debug mode.

Disclaimer: I don't use this (and I'm not going to run it), I just downloaded it to check it out for you.

Yes. That runs OK on LFS. Solved.
