Question Problem sith IBM WebSphere Homepage Builder for Linux v.4


I'm running RH 8.0 on a Celeron at 900 Mhrtz with 128MB RAM. My problem involves IBM WebSphere Homepage Builder for Linux v4.0. None of the applications bundled with this software will run (FTP, Web Animator, Homepage Builder, Web Art Animator) whether I launch them from the shell or from the menu. They ran at one point. I havn't used it in months. I tried reinstalling the packages (the installation file is an *.rpm). I'm told that the software is already installed. When I try uninstalling the packages, I'm told that it's not installed. Any suggestion as to how should resolve this matter will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

# rpm --justdb [this will update the database of the rpm packages already installed...]

# rpm -qa | grep websphere

[the above command queries all the rpm's installed on your system and outputs all the packages with the (string/name) --->websphere]

When I run rpm --justdb I get this message:
rpm: --justdb may only be specified during package installation and erasure

When I type rpm -qa |grep hpbuilder I get the following response:
hpbuilder-4.0-1
hpbuilder-wine-4.0-1

(hpbuilder being the name of the rpm file and the executable)

Typing hpbuilder brings up a list of options used to start various tools, provide software information and to clean up the temp file. Apparently this package is installed, it just won't execute.

Ahy ideas? Thanks.

Sorry abt the first one ....

try this

#rpm --rebuilddb
#rpm -qa | grep hpbuilder


if you get the same output
uninstall them by [ ***Make sure u have the Same RPM's for later installation]
#rpm -ev hpbuilder
#rpm -ev hpbuilder-wine

then run

#rpm -iq hpbuilder [to see if it uninstalled successfully...]
#rpm -iq hpbuilder-wine [to see if it uninstalled successfully...]

Go ahead with the fresh install of the rpms..


#rpm -ivh hpbuilder-4.0-1.rpm

#rpm -ivh hpbuilder-wine-4.0-1.rpm

post the output if anything goes wrong.....

Best of Luck!!!

I uninstalled the RPM packages and reinstalled them as per your suggestion. Upon reinstalling hpbuilder-4.0-1, I got this error message:

/var/tmp-\/rpm-temp.54031: line 2: [: !=: unary operator expected
/bin/cp: cannot stat `/hpbuilder4/system/hpbuilder4/guide/index_dummy.htm' No such file or directory
error: %post(hpbuilder-4.0-1) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

I installed the software directly from the CD (except for hpbuilder-wine, which had to be downloaded. Fortunately I did that some time ago so I already had that package on hand). When I type in a command to launch any of the programs that are supposed to be installed, nothing happens. These programs worked at one point. I started dabbling in Quanta Plus and liked that so much I guess I put this these programs on the back burner.

I'm going to check out IBM's website to see if anyone else had this trouble, as they produce this product.

If you have any ideas, Usual Tuxpect, I'm all ears. I really appreciate the assist. Thanks.

Here it is:

/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.9956: line 2: [: !=: unary operator expected
/bin/cp: cannot stat `/hpbuilder4/system/hpbuilder4/guide/index_dummy.htm': No such file or directory
error: %post(hpbuilder-4.0-1) scriptlet failed, exit status 1


IBM's website was no help unless I wanted info on Homepage Builder 6.0.

Thanks.

I just wanted to tie up this loose end. My system had a few issues. I ended up reinstalling RH 8.0 from scratch and everything is fine. I now have IBM Websphere Homepage Builder for Linux 4.0 running smoothly. Thanks.
