Got Notes 8.0.1 running on Hardy Heron. The only thing (?) I installed before I installed Lotus Notes was the Sun Java Runtime Environment 1.6, but that was just to be able to download the Lotus Notes software from Partnerworld using the Download Director. I do not think that made it work...
This is what I did:
Start a terminal session, and "cd" your way to the directory where you have the installation files(setup.sh , installdata and updateSite.zip + the deploy directory)
log in as root:
$ su root
I set the default command interpreter to bash, based on suggestions on this forum... I don't think that is necessary, though, but this is what I did:
$ ln -sf bash /bin/sh
Copy one installation file to root's home directory:
$ cp deploy/install.xml /root
If you do not copy the install.xml-file to /root, the installer will fail with an error message that notesrc-file is missing.....
$ ./setup.sh -console
This starts the install in text-mode. I have not been able to get the graphical installer running...
When installation has finished, you should restore the sh command interpreter to dash:
$ ln -sf dash /bin/sh
Exit the terminal session, and start Notes from the Program menu ( Program/Office/Lotus Notes 8 ) (assuming you are logged in to X-windows system using your normal login account).
