Linux for Intel Download Instructions/Requirements

  1. Read the operating requirements for this software:
    • A Linux distribution with a version 2.6.27 or later kernel running on a x86 / x86_64 processor. Use uname -r to determine the version of your kernel and note that, in most cases, this will be different from the version of your Linux distribution.
    • A Linux distribution that manages services (daemons) using the System V method. This uses an init.d directory and several rc?.d directories located either in /etc/rc.d or just /etc (e.g., /etc/rc.d/init.d).
    • 100 MB of free disk space (during installation, the /tmp partition must have 150 MB free)
    • 512 MB of RAM
    • X Window System with either the KDE or Gnome desktop environment
    • A mouse or other pointing device
    • TCP/IP network protocol
    • Most recent popular Linux distributions meet these requirements. MultiLink has been tested on: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 and SuSE Linux Enterprise 11
    • MultiLink has been tested with both KDE and Gnome desktop environments.
  2. Log on to the host as root. You may need to add "execute" mode to the saved file
  3. Extract the *.bin file from the GNU zip file to a location of your choice and begin the install process
  4. If you intend to connect your Liebert UPS to a serial port on the computer on which MultiLink will be installed, you will need to make or purchase a custom cable for the software to work. ORDINARY SERIAL CABLES WILL NOT WORK! Some UPS models ship with a MultiLink cable. Please refer to the APPENDIX B of the Liebert MultiLink Advanced; User Manual; (R06/04) (SL-53620) for detailed instruction on "Making Your Own MultiLink UPS Cable" from parts available at most electronics parts stores.

If you decide to purchase a cable instead of building one, you can contact your local Liebert Representative, Value-Added Reseller, or distributor and ask to purchase a MultiLink UPS cable.
