Cisco Packet Tracer
« on: November 27, 2013, 09:19:26 pm »
Hi, I am trying to install Cisco Packet Tracer 6.0.1 on Fedora 19 and having no joy whatsoever.
The cisco website that I logged into (netacad) to get the software let me choose between a copy for "linux" and a copy for ubuntu and with the little knowledge I have of linux I decided that the ubuntu one was no good as of rpm vs deb.
Now there is nothing executable (right phrase? only just switched from windows) in the folder that contains many files and subfolders including a file called 'install' but I just can't work out what to do.
I then gave up and went on this --->  http://shuttertux.wordpress.com/2013/09/25/install-cisco-packet-tracer-under-linux/
which had a file to download and some code examples that should work, which don't. A chmod command with no responses and and an execute command also no response.
On a ubuntu forum someone posted a .bin file, and this was the closest I got, as I managed to get all the way to the license agreement in the terminal but then it immediately fails with error dpkg command not found.  I guess dpkg is a .deb based command?
Please can anyone help, I really need this software for my CCNA course.
I get the feeling from my research that I could get it on a Ubuntu variant quite easily however after trying to install Mint with a catastrophic failure (nothing I did, I don't think, just a failed install if you beleive me :P) I am put off trying new distro's for now and as I have fedora running fairly well I want to keep it how it is at the moment.
I can give more information if you want, might even let you 'see' what I downloaded from Cisco in the first place.

~Andy

Hmm.. The instructions are simple and easy to follow.
First of all, where did you download the file to and what was the file name?

That is a long list of dependencies, but you can filter out the duplicates.
Try this (first become root):
Code: [Select]
su
Enter your password then:
Code: [Select]
yum install libICE.so.6 libSM.so.6 libX11.so.6 libXext.so.6 libXi.so.6 libXrandr.so.2 libXrender.so.1 libc.so.6 libdl.so.2 libfontconfig.so.1 libfreetype.so.6 libgcc_s.so.1 libglib-2.0.so.0 libgthread-2.0.so.0 libm.so.6 libpng12.so.0 libpthread.so.0 librt.so.1 libstdc++.so.6 libz.so.1

See how far you get with that (not a Fedora user myself so YMMV)

Ok well it had a good whack at it but at the end of it:

Error:  Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root
       cause is something else and multilib version checking is just
       pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.:
       
         1. You have an upgrade for libstdc++ which is missing some
            dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to
            solve this by installing an older version of libstdc++ of the
            different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture
            yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package
            requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with
            --exclude libstdc++.otherarch ... this should give you an error
            message showing the root cause of the problem.
       
         2. You have multiple architectures of libstdc++ installed, but
            yum can only see an upgrade for one of those architectures.
            If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you
            can remove the one with the missing update and everything
            will work.
       
         3. You have duplicate versions of libstdc++ installed already.
            You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors.
       
       ...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove
       this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to
       do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing
       much more problems).
       
       Protected multilib versions: libstdc++-4.8.2-1.fc19.i686 != libstdc++-4.8.1-1.fc19.x86_64
Error: Protected multilib versions: libgcc-4.8.2-1.fc19.i686 != libgcc-4.8.1-1.fc19.x86_64
Error: Protected multilib versions: freetype-2.4.11-7.fc19.i686 != freetype-2.4.11-6.fc19.x86_64

It appears that the ones with error are already installed

First try to execute the file again and post the output

Also you could try for each package with error:

Code: [Select]
yum list installed libstdc++
then
Code: [Select]
yum distro-sync libstdc++

Executed the file again and got same dependancies list.
Did those two commands for each of the 5 erros and then executed file, same result.
Just downloaded the dependancies again and it has worked!
Packet Tracer installed and seems to be running so far. 
Next job is to try and get the lab/tutorial files from Uni working on it!
Thank you so much for your help! I maybe bumping this later to find out how to do that lol.
