Running HDsentinel on x64 Systems.

Postby TheEvilDot » 2009.07.30. 15:20

Hi,

Just a heads up.
I'm running Ubuntu Server install 9.0x (x64) and I was getting the following problem.

I tried running HDsentinel with:

$sudo ./HDsentinel

but it gave the following error message:

"sudo: Unable to execute ./HDSentinel: No such file or directory"

Seems you need some x86 libraries to run HDSentinel on a 64-bit OS.

$sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
This will install 142 MiB worth of x86 libraries HDSentinel needs to run.

After installing HDSentinel works like a charm.

A 64bit recompile would save us some space :)

Hi,

Wow, thanks for the information !!

Personally I verified under Fedora Core 9 / 10 64 bit versions and I had no problems under them.

As I know, FreePascal (the Linux version is written by using FP) can build 64 bit version so I think it should not be a problem.

Got it running on my x64 system and it worked. With higher memory that helped of course.

In Ubuntu 14.04 x64 ia32-libs is no longer available in standard repositories.

However the gcc-multilib package is the closest drop-in replacement for the ia32-libs in 14.04.

Code: Select all
sudo apt install gcc-multilib


After installing this HDSentinel works fine in my fresh install

Thanks for the tip !

Anyway, in the meantime the 64 bit Linux version released and available from http://www.hdsentinel.com/hard_disk_sentinel_linux.php
(please scroll to the Download Hard Disk Sentinel Linux section, which contains download links for different Linux systems, eg. 32 / 64 bit, Raspberry PI / ARM ).
