To make the unpackaged software package usable in a Custom Partition, make the application files executable and put them into a compressed tar file.

  1. On your Linux workstation, open a terminal and change to the directory that contains the teams/ directory with the application files and the initialization script custompart-teams
  2. Make the files in teams/ and the initialization script executable:
    chmod -R +x teams
    chmod +x custompart-teams
  3. Compress the teams/ directory and the initialization script into an archive file named teams_[version].tar.bz2 (in our example: teams_1.3.00.5153.tar.bz2):
    tar cjvf teams_1.3.00.5153.tar.bz2 teams custompart-teams
