Install failure - libblkid and ncurses-libs needed

Veeam Logoby conradoblack » Mon Jan 09, 2017 11:50 pm

Hello,

I'm trying to install Veeam agent for linux on OEL, and when I do a "yum install veeam" it's asking for dependencies. Namely DKMS, libblkid, and ncurses-libs. I got DKSM installed, i'm having trouble with libblkid and ncurses-libs.

I've tried installing the following packages with yum:

ncurses-devel
ncurses
libcurses-dev
libacl-devel
libattr-devel
libudevel
fuse, fuse-devel

I also did a yum group install "Development tools" to no avail.

I'm still getting these errors:

--> Missing Dependency: libblkid is needed by package veeam-1.0.0.944-1.el6.x86_64 (veeam)
veeam-1.0.0.944-1.el6.x86_64 from veeam has depsolving problems
--> Missing Dependency: ncurses-libs is needed by package veeam-1.0.0.944-1.el6.x86_64 (veeam)
Error: Missing Dependency: libblkid is needed by package veeam-1.0.0.944-1.el6.x86_64 (veeam)
Error: Missing Dependency: ncurses-libs is needed by package veeam-1.0.0.944-1.el6.x86_64 (veeam)


I was wondering if anyone had any insights on how to proceed.

Thanks :)

I don't have OEL right now for testing but can you see for the following package which includes multiple libraries: e2fsprogs should include it.

In regards to ncurses-libs this ks the correct name of the package which you might need to get via a rpm file.

I was able to install e2fsprogs without issue. libblkid-devel and libncurses5 I can't install.

I got the RHEL version of libncurses5 installed (ncurses and ncurses-devel). I can't find libblkid-devel through yum.

Just to make sure we are on the same page - what's the version of OEL that you use? Is it 6 or 7? Also please show the output of:

Code: Select all
yum repolist enabled
yum repolist disabled

Hi,

I have the same problem :

Error: Missing Dependency: fuse-libs is needed by package veeam-1.0.0.944-1.el6.x86_64 (veeam)
Error: Missing Dependency: libblkid is needed by package veeam-1.0.0.944-1.el6.x86_64 (veeam)
Error: Missing Dependency: ncurses-libs is needed by package veeam-1.0.0.944-1.el6.x86_64 (veeam)

I have installed EPEL package to find these packages, but I don't find it.

I'm on RHEL 5.5, yes i know Veeam agent for linux don't support this version.

Thank.

Hi,

I'm not quite sure whether you are trying to install el6 packages onto RHEL 5.5 system or you have the abovementioned package problem on RHEL 6 system as well? Please elaborate.

Thank you

Hi PTide,

I don't try to install RHEL 6 package on RHEL 5.5.
I have the same error when i tryied to install Veeam agent for Linux on RHEL 5.5.

I have added EPEL Repository to find the missing package, but I don't find these packages.

For example :

yum install fuse-libs
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.
Setting up Install Process
No package fuse-libs available.
Nothing to do

Thank.

As far as I can read from the error that you've posted:
ncurses-libs is needed by package veeam-1.0.0.944-1.el6.x86_64 (veeam)

you're trying to install el6 package.

I have the same error when i tryied to install Veeam agent for Linux on RHEL 5.5.
That's right, it happens because you're trying to install wrong package. There is no "right" package since RHELs older than RHEL 6 are not supported. Have you tried to install VAL on supported system?

Regarding missing packages - those are enlisted in dependencies for "veeam" and "veeamsnap" packages, however they might be named differently in RHEL 5.x. Even if you manage to find them and install VAL it won't work due to major differences between RHEL 5.x and RHEL 6.x.

Hi,

Have you tried to install VAL on supported system?

Yes it works fine on Ubuntu LTS 16.04

Even if you manage to find them and install VAL it won't work due to major differences between RHEL 5.x and RHEL 6.x.

Ok thank you for your answers and assist.

Have a good day.
