    Where is "lsb" package? needed to run flexlm license manager

    Hello,
    On my SLED 11 SP3 workstation, the "lsb" package is not installed. It does not seem to be in the SDK, and I can't find a version for SP3 on opensuse.org. I need this in order to run the flexlm license manager used by Exelis IDL application. Apparently the current version of flexlm requires "lsb". Does anyone know where I can find this or am I out of luck?
    Thanks for your time,
    Alison

    Yes that is exactly what I need - how do I find that repository? I don't have it. I registered with NCC, which automatically added SLE11-SDK-* repositories, but that's all. Can you please tell me how to add the repository in your post?
    Thanks,
    Alison

    Hi
    Log into NCC and remove the system, then on the system, use
    YaST-> Other-> Customer Center Configuration to re-register the system.
    This should add the repositories. Sometimes the akamai mirrors play up
    I think....

    Hi,
    Tried your suggestion, but no luck. I deleted my system from NCC and re-registered, but same result. I see only SLE11-SDK-* repositories added.

    Hi
    And you add a registration code?

    You mean activation code? no, it said that was optional. I left that blank and continued, it told me that my registration was successful.
    My system was pre-installed by HP. I didn't receive any sort of code, was I supposed to have received one?

    Hi
    Ahh, HP have there own repo's and procedures which are added with their
    registration code (I think it's on the bottom of the computer?). Is
    there nothing in the documentation about that? There is probably an
    application on the system (maybe hp-<something> in /usr/sbin (not
    hp-setup that's for the printers.

    Else you need to contact HP Support for them to guide you on the
    correct procedure to activate. If you still have a problem, post back
    and will see what we can do.

    I did not receive any documentation regarding SLED, or any mention of registration. I have an icon in yast for NCC which is how I found the registration process, and a Welcome web page which points me to SUSE website for info about SLED which is how I found this forum. A google search turned up a help page on the Novell website which says I should be able to register my HP product without a subscription for 90 days. Maybe that was misleading. Anyway, thanks for your help. I will try HP support.

    Hello,
    To wrap up this thread, I will report that I've solved my issue. Turns out there is an iso file on my system which contains the binary packages. I did not know that I was supposed to manually add this iso file as a repository. Once I did that, the packages appeared in my list of software and I was able to install what I needed. It would have been nice if HP had supplied instruction, but I guess they figure if you are buying SLED you already know what to do. Anyway, I know now.
    Thanks for your help,
    Alison
