IDA Support: Licensing Information / Linux

Linux installation procedure

The Linux installer is a self-unpacking binary. You may need to set file permissions to executable before running it:

chmod +x ./lmadmin-x64_lsb-11_16_0_0.bin

Both the installer and lmadmin itself require LSB support installed. If you’re installing x86 lmadmin on an x64 OS, first install 32-bit support:

[Debian/Ubuntu]
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

LSB support is required on both 32-bit and 64-bit OS:

[Redhat/Fedora]
yum install redhat-lsb-core
[Debian/Ubuntu]
apt-get install lsb-core

You may also need to install some additional 32-bit libraries manually, e.g.:

[Redhat/Fedora]
yum install glibc.i686 libstdc++.i686
[Debian/Ubuntu]
apt-get install lib32gcc1 libc6-i686:i386 libstdc++6:i386

If you decided to use ‘lmgrd’ instead of ‘lmadmin’, in addition you will have to:

sudo mkdir /usr/tmp
sudo chmod 777 /usr/tmp

Starting as a service

The Linux installer does not configure the server to start automatically. If your distribution uses SysV style init, check the [install_dir]/examples/service/lmadmin script. For a systemd service script example, check [install_dir]/examples/systemd/

If you used ‘lmgrd’ instead of ‘lmadmin’ (and thus don’t have the examples/ directory), you can find an example SysV-style script here and systemd-style script here.
