In the past i had to install Flash Media Server 2 on Ubuntu and Markus Bertheau’s Blog came to help with publishing a patch to make this work.
Time went by and now i had to install Flash Media Server 3 on my Ubuntu box. Again Markus has a patch for the fms3 installer script available, Markus’s article can be found at http://www.bluetwanger.de/blog/2008/02/11/flash-media-server-3-on-ubuntu-710-gutsy/:
first make sure you have libnspr4-dev installed, if not:
sudo apt-get install libnspr4-dev
download and unzip the Flash Media Server 3 app from adobe and upload FlashMediaServer3.tar.gz to your Ubuntu server, then:
tar xfz FlashMediaServer3.tar.gz cd FMS_3_0_0_r1157 wget http://www.bluetwanger.de/~mbertheau/flash-media-server-3-ubuntu.patch patch -p1 < flash-media-server-3-ubuntu.patch sudo ./installFMS
thanks again Markus for providing these patches!
