Issue/Introduction

Description:

From your documentation, it is not really clear what is the requirements to setup Linux RedHat OS to install Web Agent. I would like to know for both architecture 32 and 64 bit.

Solution:

The requirements for Linux RedHat OS for SiteMinder Web Agent and Policy Server are :

Web Agent R6, R12 and R12SP2 on ASF Apache

32-bit ASF Apache 2.2.x supported on RH 3, 4, 5 with Web Agent R6, R12.x 32-bit
64-bit ASF Apache 2.2.x supported on RH 3, 4, 5 with Web Agent R6, R12.x 64-bit

OS 32 and 64 bit, Redhat 4 and 5

32 bit
compat-gcc-32-c++-3.2.3-47.3-patch_version.i386.rpm

64 bit
compat-gcc-32-c++-3.2.3-47.3-patch_version.x86_64.rpm

NOTE : all previous requirements outside those one will be removed from documentation.

Apache

Apache 1.x, 2.0.x and 2.2.x Redhat 3, 4 and 5

Compiling is required because the Agent code uses pthreads (a library of POSIX-compliant thread routines), but the Apache server on the Linux platform does not, by default. You should set this environment variable first before compilation:
LIBS=-lpthread
export LIBS
configure --enable-module=so --prefix=your_install_target_dir
make
make install
