Which candidate AS for Ubuntu 15.10 Wily?

Postby bulgin » Sat Jul 15, 2017 2:27 pm

I see several version candidates for running Access Server on Ubuntu - one for Ubuntu 14 and one for Ubuntu 16 but none listed for 15.

So what's the proper choice?

We have chosen to only build for the Long Term Support versions of Ubuntu. Meaning, versions 12.04 LTS, 14.04 LTS, and 16.04 LTS. The uneven numbers are sort of short term releases that build up to a new long term support version. If you are on Ubuntu 15 now, I suggest you upgrade to 16 LTS.

If you want to stay on Ubuntu 15 then you can try the one for Ubuntu 14 or the one for Ubuntu 16, and see if it works for you. It probably will.

OpenVPN AS is packaged to be mostly self contained (it supplies it's own python and other resources independent of the distribution). This should make it easier to use it on a slightly different Ubuntu version than what it claims to be published for.

After installing, you might want to run the following to look for places where a different library version is expected:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/openvpn_as/lib"
ldd /usr/local/openvpn_as/bin/* \
/usr/local/openvpn_as/sbin/* \
| grep "not found"

However, I would also recommend upgrading to an LTS release for running security related services.
