Installing IBM Installation Manager on the KDE Live Version of Fedora 14

Installing the IBM Installation Manager on the KDE Live Version of Fedora 14 requires a lot of extra packages that are not installed by default. I installed both 32 and 64bit versions of the following packages to get the Installation Manager to install and run properly:

  • gcc (all of it)
  • gtk2 and gtk3
  • libXtst

Note that installing the first two will make it possible to do a silent install of the IBM Installation Manager, but to actually run it or do a regular install, you will have to install libXtst. Also, the IBM Installation Manager creates a folder called var/ibm/InstallationManager if you do a user install and the log file can be found in var/ibm/InstallationManager/pluginState/.log .
