Hi all,
I am a newcomer to CGP. I am trying to install in a slackware
computer. Since slackware has no rpm service, I downloaded
CGatePro-Linux.x86_64.tar.gz (version 6.0-9).
After tar-ing this file in / I find two directories:
/opt/Communigate
/usr/doc/Communigate
but nowhere do I find the install.sh so I am stuck.

Would someone help me?

Thx

Where did you get that from? I see no such file in
ftp://ftp.communigate.com/pub/CommuniGatePro/6.0

In fact, I don't see any *.tgz package of any CGP version for 64-bit
Linux on their site. The page of the CGP Guide with download links does
not have an entry for non-rpm Linux x86_64, so it seems likely that no
such package of CGP has ever existed.

The CGatePro-Linux-Intel.tgz they provide has 32-bit binaries and it
includes the install.sh script. I'm not familiar with modern Slackware
but if it includes 32-bit compatibility libraries as some other systems
do, you may be able to just use the 32-bit version.

That looks like what one would get by extracting the file archive
segment from the CGP .rpm file carelessly, ignoring the header segment
(where the install script for RPM distros resides). Wherever that tar.gz
file came from, I think you would be wise to remove it and the directory
trees that were unpacked from it.

If you really need the 64-bit version, you contact Communigate directly
to see if they are able to package it properly for you. It might also be
possible to just install rpm on your Slackware machine and use the rpm
file OR you may be able to find a tool to convert the rpm file to
whatever format you use for package management.

Thank you Bill.
Actually the tar.gz file was generated from an rpm (not by myself, but
by a friend of mine, I think he used rpm2tgz).
Now I erased all, downloaded the 32 bit version
CGatePro-Linux-Intel.tgz
and started installing it.
All went OK until I tried to execute
CommuniGate start
and obtained the following message:

Starting CommuniGate Pro CommuniGate: line 44:
/opt/CommuniGate/CGServer: No such file or directory

This looks mysterious, since CGServer exists (owner root.mail,
permissions -r-xr-sr-x).

Also if I try to execute (as root) CGServer directly, I get the same
answer:
CGServer: Command not found

Any help is welcome.

Hi Elio,

don't know anything about Slackware, but I once had a very similar "Command not found" error on Debian when I tried to run 32 bit applications without having 32-bit libs installed. Hope this helps.
