How do I install Adobe Flash Media Server 3.0 on Debian Etch?

Hello folks,

I stumbled into this myself and so I wanted to tell you how I did fix that problem. One thing for starters: I did install it on the 32 bit version of Debian Etch, so if you try it on 64bit Debian Etch you might run into other issues.

  • aptitude install iceweasel ibstdc++5 libnspr4-0d
  • now we run the installer:
    ./installFMS -platformWarnOnly
    (I kept everything asked at its default settings)
  • ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
    ln -s /usr/lib/iceweasel/ /usr/lib/
    ln -s /usr/lib/iceweasel/ /usr/lib/
    ln -s /opt/adobe/ /usr/lib/

Well that is about it. With ./fmscore you should be able to fire the baby up. If something is not working try:

  • ldd fmscore

Output shout look like this: => (0xffffe000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7f0c000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7edb000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7ed5000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7ed2000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7ec9000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7ec0000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7ebc000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7dd7000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7db1000) => /lib/ (0xb7da6000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7c75000)
/lib/ (0xb7f2b000)

If a library is missing, you could try to use "aptitude search LIBNAME" to get it.

I have not yet made a decent start up script, once I did that I will post it here too.
