Installing Sunray II server software on Centos 5.3

I spent many weeks trying to install Sunray server software on Linux. I was NOT able to make it work with Centos 5.3 x86_64. Maybe this is related somehow to GDM package but it did not work. It worked when using i386 version of Centos. See the step by step guide. 1 - Install Centos 5.3 i386 1.1 - If you have more than 3GB of installed RAM, run as root: yum -y install kernel-PAE 2 - Run as root: yum -y update reboot 3 - Download: srss_4.1_linux.zip from http://www.sun.com/software/sunray/getit.jsp jre-6u13-linux-i586-rpm.bin from http://www.java.com apache-tomcat-5.5.27.tar.gz from http://tomcat.apache.org/ 4 - run as root: yum install glib dhcp openldap-clients openldap tftp-server libXp openmotif22 openssl compat-libstdc++-33 libusb-devel compat-openldap yum groupinstall "Development Tools" yum install kernel-devel 5 - run as root: cd /usr/lib ln -sf libldap-2.3.so.0.2.31 libldap.so.199 ln -sf libgdbm.so.2.0.0 libgdbm.so.3 ln -sf liblber-2.3.so.0.2.31 liblber.so.199
