Re: PDC in RHEL 8.0 / CentOS 8.0

Hi r@yElr3y 

 

In the latest PDC 9.1R8.2 is reported to be solved:

PRS-392320 RHEL 8 has deprecated many libraries that are required by libwebkitgtk, which is used by Pulse Client.

Do you know what this mean? I've tried with a CentOs 8 and it didn't work

[user@localhost pulse]$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version: :core-4.1-amd64:core-4.1-noarch
Distributor ID: CentOS
Description: CentOS Linux release 8.2.2004 (Core)
Release: 8.2.2004
Codename: Core
[user@localhost pulse]$ ./pulseUi
./pulseUi: error while loading shared libraries: libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 

Best Regards,

Re: PDC in RHEL 8.0 / CentOS 8.0

9.1R8.2 client is having the required libraries, please uninstall the current installation and install it using rpm -ivh packagename.rpm command.

 

If it doesnt work, please extract the pulse rpm using tar and copy the libraries to /usr/local/pulse dir and try to launch the pulseui

Re: PDC in RHEL 8.0 / CentOS 8.0

Hi all,

 

Version 9.1R8.2 (fresh install) works fine in RHEL8, but out of the box do not work with CentOS8, because after some digging, I've found in the ConfigurePulse_x86_64.sh script, was changed to support RHEL but not CentOS.

I've done a quick experiment removing /etc/centos-release file and reinstall the rpm and it work without problems.

 

Cumprimentos,

Filipe

Hi.

 

I've tried removing /etc/centos-release file and installing ps-pulse-linux-9.1r8.2-b197-centos-rhel-64-bit-installer.rpm but it shows this error/warning during installation:

Verifying... ################################# [100%]
Preparando... ################################# [100%]

1Smiley Tongueulse-2:9.1-R8 ################################# [100%]
/usr/local/pulse/ConfigurePulse_x86_64.sh: línea 240: lsb_release: no se encontró la orden

 

Then, if I tried to install dependencies:

$ sudo /usr/local/pulse/PulseClient_x86_64.sh install_dependency_packages
/usr/local/pulse/PulseClient_x86_64.sh: línea 312: lsb_release: no se encontró la orden
Checking for missing dependency packages ...
/usr/local/pulse/PulseClient_x86_64.sh: línea 346: [: =: se esperaba un operador unario

 

And if I try to connect to VPN:

$ sudo /usr/local/pulse/PulseClient_x86_64.sh [params]
Checking for missing dependency packages for command line client ...
executing command : /usr/local/pulse/pulsesvc [params]

But nothing happens. No tunnel is created.

 

Am I missing something?

 

Thanks in advance

P.S.: I've also installed redhat-lsb-core package in order to have lsb_release command available and tried renaming /etc/centos-release to /etc/redhat-release with the same result.

Re: PDC in RHEL 8.0 / CentOS 8.0

Hi 

 

I too cannot install Pulse Secure on Centos 8 for the same reasons above. It installs ok on Centos 7 - so I've temporarily had to revert back to using that. Would really appreciate any help. 

Thanks in advance
