Fedora linux support?

#1 Post by bew »

Hi there.
I am using Fedora 39.
Is there any way to use Air Manager/Air Player in my system?

Thanks,
Brad.

I am sorry, but that does not answer my question.
Unless the answer is, no!

Are there any plans to support Fedora Linux in the future?
I am not a Debian fan.

I downloaded the file: Air Manager 4.2 Home use.zip, and unpacked it.
I then viewed the setup.sh file to see what it would do, and noticed that it contained a reference to 'fedora'.
So I manually ran the 'dnf' command, which was successful.
I then tried running the AirManager.sh file, but got this error:

Code: Select all

./Bootloader: error while loading shared libraries: libzip.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
My investigations showed the closest was: /usr/lib/libzip.so.5. So I created a soft-link to it named: libzip.so.4.
This got me further. However the next problem was an Exception:

Code: Select all

Caused by: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /home/xxxxxx/apps/Air Manager 4.2 Home use/libAppBase.so: libcrypto.so.1.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Running this command got me some results:

Code: Select all

sudo dnf provides */libcrypto.so.1.1
The most useful was:

Code: Select all

openssl1.1-1:1.1.1q-5.fc39.x86_64 : Compatibility version of the OpenSSL library
Repo        : fedora
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.1.1
So I installed that library:

Code: Select all

sudo dnf install openssl1.1-1:1.1.1q-5.fc39.x86_64
On running AirManager.sh again I got this:

Code: Select all

./Bootloader: /lib64/libcurl.so.4: no version information available (required by ./Bootloader)
16-01-2024 02:24:27.905 INFO Bootloader: Starting...
16-01-2024 02:24:28.670 INFO Bootloader: Found application list online
16-01-2024 02:24:28.670 INFO Bootloader: Starting application ./jre/bin/java -Xmx512m -Djava.library.path=. -cp "./libs/*" com.siminnovations.airmanager.AirManager
I don't yet know the ramifications of that first line, but so far the program is running.

Plugin kills X-Plane 12
Just installed the Plugin: Flight simulator plugins 4.1 Home use.zip. X-Plane 12 crashes after about a minute or so. I can't find any reasons in the logs.
If you will supply me with a debug version that produces this information, I am willing to test it and return the results.

I don't know anything about Linxu with versions, what it is based on and such, but Debian based Linux distro's are the only ones we are supporting and will support.

Could have been somewhat a solution I've used myself in the past, though not really followed currently, which would have been to install apt on Fedora :o Yes, it was working for me, at least for what we are expecting to perform
https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/apt/releases

Only a workaround indeed and not really the best solution

Just wondering why libzip.so.4 was targetted in AM, in place of a more recent one. Does any other install like MacOS or Raspberry will suffer of any actualization ?

Well in any case if it works like this, I would rather opt for debian like, ubuntu or similar in the distros family, so no more guess ...

Here's for Ubuntu if useful : https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?sear ... l&arch=any
