            Re: HP dropped linux support clarification
            Those instructions are very version dependent. The version being Slackware 12.0.

            To debug the install I started the install in one terminal, then used another terminal to preserve the data it extracted into "/tmp/". In that data extracted was the install script and all the binary files.

            I used either strace on the installer or read a script (can't remember) to discover and resolve the linux version checker.

            "hpwebjetd" the binary file that is dynamically linked to libraries that were not installed on Slackware 12.0. "ldd hpwebjetd" showed me what dependencies were missing. I fixed the missing dependencies by creating symbolic links to compatible libraries I did have on my system.

            apr was installed because it is used by the installer and maybe the program itself but was not on my system.

            HP dropped linux support
            HP appears to have dropped Linux support for HP Web Jetadmin after version 8.1 !

            Installing HP WebJetadmin 8.1 (Linux) on Slackware 12.0

            Obtain HP WebJetadmin 8.1 for Linux from:


            echo "Red Hat Linux release 7.3 (Valhalla)" > /etc/redhat-release

            cd /usr/lib/

            ln -s

            ln -s

            ln -s


            ./configure ; make ; make install ;


            ./configure --with-apr=/usr/local/apr ; make ; make install ;

            init script: /etc/rc.d/init.d/hpwebjetd

            Thank god for simplicity
            I run a debian 2.2 machine, and wanted to install the webjet admin.

            The only checking that the install application does is verify the /etc/redhat-release

            so if it doesnt exist, create it with the following:
            Red Hat Linux release 7.1 (Seawolf)

            You may also get a error about a missing or something equiv
            cd /usr/lib
            ln -s
            and then rerun the setup. All will be sweet.

            HP Web JetAdmin - looks like both SUSE and RedHat now supported
            I just went to HP's site and it looks like HP now has downloads and support for both SUSE and Redhat for their Web JetAdmin.

            SuSE 6.4
            Installs great but it refuses to locate any JetDirect cards on the network. Discovery fails to locate any of the older JetDirect cards ... oh well looks like we go back to the OLD W95 Jet Admin kit ...
