Installing Flash Media Server 2 on Ubuntu 6.10

The installation script for Flash Media Server works only on RedHat Enterprise by default. With some modifications it works fine on Ubuntu Edgy:

apt-get install libnspr4 libstdc++5 libstdc++5-3.3-dev
tar xfz flashmediaserver2.tar.gz
cd FMS*
patch -p1 < fms.patch
sudo ./installFMS

Live aus der Marschrutka – Installing Flash Media Server 2 on Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy

this howto is written bei Markus Bertheau, please check the original article and his blog here. with his great patch my installation of FMS2 on my Mac Book Pro running Ubuntu 6.10 server inside Parallels Desktop worked like a charm 🙂

    i did what you recommended, it seems that FMS installs fine but when i try to record from the client it seems like it cannot connect, the client hangs on “creating streams” message – i am running locally so there is firewall. any suggestion?

    Hy, good post. I also make it work for Fedora Core 3,4 and 5 with some modifications on installFMS file only, you can download the file from my website by clicking here! You should install some depedencies, such compat-libstdc++, mozilla-nspr, openssl-devel etc. I work now on script to make it work on Fedora Core 6 and 7 when will appear. Thx and I hope that what I wrote will help someone.
    With respect,

    Thank you for your patch. I’ve been trying to do the same thing yourself, but then I found your patch which works great.

    To get this patch to work on debian you will also need to:

    ln -s
    ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
    ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

    I will try to make debian package for debian Etch and post the patch here when I do it.

    it should also be

    ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

    instead of what I wrote, just in case if you are wondering:)

    I’m trying to install FMS2 2.0.3 on Debian Etch. My server is running, i can access the console, but impossible to connect to an application.
    Any idea ?
