Check for package dependencies for the PowerMedia™ XMS RPM install


The stand-alone RPM installation method is used for installing the Dialogic® PowerMedia™ XMS software on existing Linux installations. Instead of an .ISO file, the RPM distribution of PowerMedia XMS uses a gzipped tar file (.tgz). The .tgz file is extracted to a directory on the machine where the PowerMedia XMS will be installed. The PowerMedia XMS installation script is run from that directory. 

PowerMedia XMS has certain prerequisite operating system packages that are needed in order to operate correctly. The PowerMedia XMS installation scripts has an option to test an existing Linux setup to confirm it contains all the RPM dependencies prior to installing PowerMedia XMS via RPM.   It can also be useful to run this check in the event that the installation is attempted and fails.


To perform this test, run the installation script with the following options: 

./ -t

 The output from this command will be in a file  written to ./xms_install.log.
