    Rick - 2004-07-28

    I am running the SuSE9.1 downloaded from the Novell site. I have install ncpfs 2.2.0.19 and have installed the novelclient using the latest setup.sh file.
    I have added the libqt files to the '/usr/local/lib/kylix2 and moved the Novel and novelclient programs to the /usr/local/bin as suggested in the How-to. I seem to be having two issues.
    1) When I try to launch the novelclient from a terminal session as a user (user is a member of the trusted group) I get a message that says "can not locate libqt..... library. and then nothing. When launched as root the GUI comes up as it should.
    2) When in a terminal session as root and I luanch novelclient, I get the gui as I should but when I try to locate the tree I get error boxes that idicate the slpquery command is not found, then one that says dhcp command not found. If I enter the tree, contect, and server information and try to connect I get a message box that says "could not mount server. NCPMOUNT: Socket operation on non-socket in mouunt(2)"

    This has me stumped. Any Ideas?

      Further Update.
      I found a newer version of the ncpfs modules version 2.2.4 at the speakeasy.rpmfinder.net site. When I installed that, is was able to use the GUI to connect to my novel servers when logged into the workstation as root. I still am getting the  following error when I try to run the novelclient as a regular user:

      error while loading shared libraries: libqtintf-6.5-qt2.3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

      I can however connect as a regular user when I issue the ncpmount command from a terminal session.

      Some progress anyway.

      Read the HOW TO on the novel clients sourceforge site

      http://novelclient.sourceforge.net/howto.html

      one point of "Executables" explains how to set up ncpfs files so that you can run novel client with regular users

        Please use the RPM for installing on SUSE Linux.  It changes the permissions properly so regular users can run the ncpfs packages.

      I found this worked to mend the 
      'error while loading shared libraries': libqtintf-6.5-qt2.3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

      Ass root make this link:
      ln -s /usr/local/lib/kylix2 /usr/lib/kylix2

      because different versions of the GUI put the libraries in different places.
