Linux (x86)a b

028

CentOS 6.5 or higher

Debian 7 or higher

Fedora 13 or higher

Red Hat RHEL 6 or higher

SUSE 11.3 or higher

Ubuntu 11.10 or higher

a. If you plan to enable SELinux, see Synergex KnowledgeBase article 100002043.

b. For 32-bit Linux, the minimum processor requirements are a Pentium 4 or Athlon 64 processor supporting SSE2. Many modern Linux systems do not come with the 32-bit subsystems installed; you must install them before you can run any 32-bit (system code 028) Synergy components.

Patches 

You can run dltest to verify that the libraries shown below are installed in the correct locations.

Platform

Patch

Notes

All UNIX platforms

libssl.so.1.1

libssl.so.10

libssl.so

You must have one of these libraries installed for OpenSSL—used by xfServer/xfServerPlus encryption, data encryption, SQL OpenNet data packet encryption, and the Synergy HTTP document transport API. They are searched for in the order shown. See also OpenSSL requirements

Linux
(x86 and x64)

libtinfo.so.5

This library is required by the runtime.

libstdc++.so.6

This library is required by the compiler.

libcrypt.so.1

This library is required by xfServer and xfServerPlus (rsynd) and xfODBC (VTX4.so).

Oracle Solaris (SPARC) v10

119963-23

118833-36

119963 is a shared library patch for the C++ runtime. 118833 is a kernel patch. Both are required by the compiler.

Solaris patches can be downloaded from the My Oracle Support section of the Oracle website.

Be sure to get the most recent revision of the patch. The first six digits are the patch number and the two digits following the hyphen are the revision. More recent revisions than those listed here may be available.

Environment setup

The Synergy environment must be set up for each user who wants to run Synergy/DE products. The necessary environment variables can be set at either the system level or the user level.

Important

Source the setsde script (located in the synergyde directory) to enable the Synergy/DE environment for the products you have installed and licensed. For example,

. ./setsde

You may want to add this script to your start-up file. Setsde can be used with any UNIX shell except csh. Synergex uses ksh; if you do not use ksh, your UNIX shell may require different syntax than that included in the setsde script. See your system administrator for assistance.
