Problems invoking DigiChat installer.

This is the output im getting when i try to install digichat

root@aeon akiru # sh ./Install_DigiChat.bin -i console
Preparing to install...

Try `tail --help' for more information.

/tmp/install.dir.14799/Linux/resource/jre/bin/i386/native_threads/java: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

My friend had this problem with DC a while ago, but hes forgotten the workaround. As i recall its something to do with java (which is also indicated in the error).

My system is running Gentoo 1.4 and ive downloaded the latest Java VM for linux from ht*p://

Anybody here have any ideas what to do?

Try this: "Of course it is for DigiChat v5.1, Do it on v4 same way...".
- Should work

To install, we are going to bypass the installer entirely and do it all manually. I know it's not pretty, but it's all I can do until the next version comes out.

Step 1 is to change to superuser, and download the file, or t'other way 'round. A the time of this writing it is at but may have moved.

Extract this to /root/DigiChat_5.1 folder.

Make sure you have a version of Apache or another webserver installed.

cd into the /root/Digichat_5.1 directory

Start the server with the command "java -cp Server.jar com.diginet.digichat.server.ChatServer licenseId=xxxxx" and it will ask you where your webroot directory is. Mine is at /var/www/, so I used that. Make sure you use your own licenseID instead of xxxxxx. Also, that command is definitely case sensitive.

Your server should run now. If you want it to run on startup, or to keep running, you'll have to come up with a script for it. The most I can really tell you is that you can also run it with:

"java -cp Server.jar com.diginet.digichat.server.ChatServer licenseId=xxxxx &"

This will cause it to run in the background. I wish I could help you out more than this, and I will at some point. Please keep your eye on our website for a new release. Alternately, you could install an older version of Red Hat. I don't really have a compatability list, but I know that it works with older versions of RH.
