In the meantime, a few readers has corresponded with me via comments in my previous post about getting IBM
I hope to blog more on 13.1 at a later date but will only focus on getting IBM Notes 9.0.1 working on 13.1 in this entry. I have been having some difficulties in my personal health lately and that only takes time away from pursuing my hobbies (blogging here being one of them).
First, I would like to acknowledge Craig for bringing to my attention the challenge and so proactively providing the links to his discussions in the Lotus forum (here). I would also like to Thank Ashu for his encouraging comments left on my previous blog entry and hope this entry will be just as useful to those out there who share the same fascination of using openSUSE and IBM Notes.
Installation - Easy as pieAs documented in previous blog entries, installation of IBM Notes 9.0.1 is really a piece of cake. You download the binaries (NOTES_9.0.1_LINUX_RPM_EN.tar), untar it into an empty directory and you will find 5 RPMs (i586 - 32-bit) and a few other files.
As root, execute the following in the same directory:
zypper in *.rpm
Done! You will find the IBM Notes icon in the Recently Installed Apps folder in KDE4. Alternatively, the launch icon can also be found in the KDE::Applications::Office::More Programs::IBM Notes. Right-click and Add to Favourites to easily find it the next time.
