Thread: problem with lsb_release

  1. problem with lsb_release

    Hi,

    I am not sure if I am posting a thread in the right forum.

    Recently, I installed SLES 12 SP3.
    Then I installed a software called Mpcci that requires Lsb ibraries to be installed. I think I have it installed because the software was installed successfully.

    Then I tried to install another software called abaqus, and I think the problem is with the lsb releases.
    in one of its abaqus installation files, I think it checks the lsb release by this command
    DSY_OS_Release=`lsb_release --short --id |sed 's/ //g'`

    when I checked my lsb release using this command
    lsb_release -a
    I get
    LSB Version: n/a
    Distributor ID: SUSE
    Description: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP3
    Release: 12.3
    Codename: n/a

    if I use this command
    rpm -qf `which lsb_release`

    I get the release version
    lsb-release-2.0-28.1.noarch

    I wanted to know why I get LSB Version: n/a, while I have a version installed. and how to fix the problem.

    Hi
    It's not the right place... SLES applications would have been the
    correct place

    What prompted you to post here in Point of Sale systems, maybe something
    that can be changed in the forum?

    Anyway, if you look at the variable name, it's OS_Release, not LSB
    release (LSB is dead anyway...)

    If you run the command it produces the correct output;
    Code:
    lsb_release --short --id |sed 's/ //g'
    SUSE
    You need to look further in the script to see if SUSE is valid, else
    fix the script.

    Hi Malcolm,

    Sorry about it, I didn't realize that this forum is for sale system. Any way, I fixed that problem by changing SUSELINUX to SUSE in abaqus installer script. But now I have another question about how to get openmotif that I will post in the appropriate sub forum.
