The problem is with loading the LV2015 run-time supplied with vipm-17.0.2018-linux, which I tried to install on LV2019 Full for RedHat Enterprise Linux 8. There are verification errors, easily dealt with running "sudo rpm -i --nodigest labview-2015-rte-15.0.1-11.x86_64.rpm", and Most of the the other items (eg. nicurli) which refuse to install because the version 2019 .so libraries are newer can have appropriate soft links added. However, there is a basic architectural problem with nisvcloc. Trying an install ( as the script would, except it needs "--nodigest" ) as: rpm -i --nodigest nisvcloc-126.96.36.199.noarch.rpm Yields an error as: "error: Failed dependencies: nisvcloc < 18.1.0 is obsoleted by (installed) ni-service-locator-188.8.131.52153-0+f1.x86_64" WIth "rpm -ql nisvcloc-15.0.0-1.noarch.rpm" , the files are: /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/bin /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/bin/nisvcloc /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/bin/nisvcloc32 /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/bin/nisvcloc64 /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/etc /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/init.d /usr/local/natinst/nisvcloc/init.d/nisvcloc Since the new ni-service-locator is a daemon under systemd, a simple soft link or manually adding the directories/files are not options. The daemon executable is /usr/sbin/nisvcloc. There isn't any directory structure as shown above for the nisvcloc rpm file at all. IS there a workaround to install VIPM 2017 on RHEL 8 ? Or do I need to wait for a new release to support LabVIEW 2019 Full for Linux ? Thanks to all for your time in reading my post.
