    Can someone guide in the direction of how to install an .rpm file for the new SUSE OS? I need to install a ICA update and hopefully resolve a dual monitor issue.

    Thanks,
    Bg

    Check out “How to create your own addon for v7” on my website.

    Perhaps I’m missing the obvious, but I have looked at that document numerous times and it seems to cover creating the .rpm file. I do not see anything about how to get the .rpm file onto the device itself. I received an .rpm file to test an update for the ICA client and a dual display issue last week, but no documentation how to install the file.

    So, the .rpm file you got was from Wyse already?
    I thought you would have to create your own addon based on the original code from Citrix.
    Put the .rpm file on a FTP server in folder ftproot/wyse/addons along with a file just called “directory”. The directory file should contain at least two lines:
    directory
    your_rpm_ICA.rpm

    Then start the client, go to Control Panel-Addons and install the addon.

    ConfGen,

    I am following your guide for v7 packages, but I don’t know where to get the rpm-to-squashrpm script.

    Can you point me in the right direction?

    Thanks,

    I am not the author of that doc but as far as I understand it, the script should be part of standard Suse with squash.

    Additionally you should
    install most development tools (gcc, kernel source, …) from standard Suse repository and of
    cause squashFS (which per default is not in Suse repository).

    Have you done that?

    I have.

    I installed the squashfs package, so I have mksquashfs and the like.

    It sounds like I might need the Suse TC distro, but I don’t know where to get that either.

    It should be part of the Suse SLED TC distri.

    That would be excellent. Let me know where it’ll be.

    Looking forward to it.
