Anyone has luck with installing and running the vCenter Converter 4.0.1 on a 64-bit Fedora 12? Or, with vCenter Converter 4? Or on a 32-bit Fedora 12? Or is Fedora is not supported, period? I know it is not on the official supported platform.
I have tried successfully installing Converter 4.0.1 on 64-bit Fedora 12, but not able to start up the "vmware-converter-client". The error encountered is:
/usr/lib/vmware-vcenter-converter-standalone/converter-gui: error while loading shared libraries: libSM.so.6: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
This really mean my 64-bit OS is not compatible with the vmware-converter-client, right?
Before getting to here, I had to do the following to get thru 3 other errors (from other forum posts):
1. Fix error during installation: "/etc/vmware-converter/ssl/rui.key not found"
%> mkdir -p /etc/vmware-converter/ssl
2. Fix error "/lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interprete"
%> yum install glibc.i686
3. Fix error "error while loading shared libraries: libSM.so.6"
%> ln -s /lib64/libSM.so.6 /lib/libSM.so.6
But now I'm stuck with the 4th error. Shall I give up and install the 32-bit Fedora 12 instead?
don't make life harder then necessary
There is no need to install Converter on a physical machine.
Just take a VM and install it there - this way you can have VMs with both versions 3.0.3 and 4.0.1 without conflicts.
