Getting Freenet running on Nexenta

THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. I don’t have full working instructions yet 🙁

I had a few problems getting Freenet 0.7.5 running on my Nexenta 2.0 Server installation, so I thought I would mention what I did.

Summary

To get Freenet running under Nexenta 2.0 Server, you need the following:

Freenet 0.7.5 wrapper
http://downloads.freenetproject.org/alpha/installer/freenet07.tar.gz
Freenet 01222 build
http://freenet.googlecode.com/files/freenet-build01222.jar
apt-get installed packages
java-runtime-headless nevada-compat

Instructions:

  1. Install the packages with apt-get.
  2. Extract the freenet07.tar.gz package somewhere.
  3. Copy the freenet-build01222.jar file into the extracted package directory where the run.sh file is. Name it freenet.jar
  4. Start the software with run.sh start.
  5. Try to figure out the rest because I haven’t had time.

Detail

I run my Nexenta server in a closet with no keyboard or monitor attached, so getting Freenet running in a headless mode was desirable. Using the headless system instructions from the “Linux and other Unix-like systems” section Freenet Download page, I got the software installed.

wget http://downloads.freenetproject.org/alpha/installer/freenet07.tar.gz
cat freenet07.tar.gz | gzip -d | tar xv
cd freenet
./run.sh start

When I called the run.sh script though, it failed as I didn’t have Java installed.

$ ./run.sh  start
Enabling the auto-update feature
Detecting tcp-ports availability...
Can not bind fproxy to 8888: let's try 8889 instead.

              IT SHOULDN'T HAPPEN!

Make sure your loopback interface is properly configured. Delete Freenet's directory and retry.

So, I installed the java-runtime-headless package. It in turn pulled in a few extra packages and recommended a few more. I ignored the recommendations.

$ sudo apt-get install java-runtime-headless

Trying to run it again, I got a new error.

$ ./run.sh  start
Unable to locate any of the following binaries:
/opt/freenet/0.7/./bin/wrapper-solaris-i86pc-32
/opt/freenet/0.7/./bin/wrapper

Let's start the node without the wrapper, you'll have to daemonize it yourself.

After some searching on Google, I found an article entitled Installing JDK6 in Nexenta Zone that mentioning the need for the nevada-compt to fix the libCrun.so.1 error. So, I installed that package.

$ sudo apt-get install nexenta-compat

Trying to run it again, I got a new error.

$ ./run.sh  start

Argh… After poking around I now figured out that the actual Freenet software wasn’t included in the freenet07.tar.gz package. Looking at the files provided on http://freenet.googlecode.com/ I found the freenet-build01222.jar that looked interesting. I downloaded a copy to the same directory where the run.sh script was.

$ wget http://freenet.googlecode.com/files/freenet-build01222.jar -O freenet.jar

Trying to run it again, I got a new error.

I’m giving up for the moment. I’ve got other work to do, so I’ll put this on the back burner. Maybe somebody else can figure this out.
