Installing UMS on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.3

Issue

You want to install UMS on the 64-bit version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.3.

Solution

  1. As root, update your local package database:
    yum -y update
  2. Install libraries for 32-bit support:
    yum -y install \
    libzip.i686 \
    ncurses-libs.i686 \
    bzip2-libs.i686 \
    libXtst.i686 \
    libXinerama.i686 \
    libXi.i686 \
    libXext.i686 \
    libXrender.i686 \
    libgcc.i686yum -y install \
  3. Reboot.
  4. Complete the installation as described in the UMS manual: Installation under Linux.

    There is a bug/glitch on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.3 with GNOME desktop version 3.14, when running UMS Console. The main window of the UMS Console is displayed as an empty grey rectangle, because the GUI isn't correctly rendered. As a workaround, the window can be resized by dragging the windows edges or by double-clicking near the top edge (maximizing) where the title bar would be. This triggers a repaint and the UMS Console window is then correctly displayed
    Alternatively, use the KDE desktop environment on RHEL 7.3.
