Linux 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 an Intel Pentium-class processor. Use uname -r to determine the version of your kernel and note that, in most cases, this will be different than the version of your Linux distribution.
    • GNU C Runtime Library (glibc) version 2.1 or greater. To check the version of glibc that you have, use ls -l /lib/ If this is not found, you do not have glibc on your system. If the file to which this is linked begins with libc-2.1, then you have an acceptable version of glibc. Consult the documentation for your Linux distribution for more information on upgrading to the required version of glibc.
    • 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).
    • At least 20 MB of free disk space (during installation, the /tmp directory must have at least 30MB free)
    • Xfree86 (X Window System) with either the KDE or Gnome desktop environment
    • A mouse
    • TCP/IP network protocol
    • Most recent popular Linux distributions meet these requirements. MultiLink has been tested on:
      • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3
      • SuSE Linux Enterprise 11
    • MultiLink has been tested with both KDE and Gnome desktop environments.
    • Log on to the host as root. You may need to add "execute" mode to the saved file (chmod +x ML_15_xxx_Linux_x86.bin).
  2. Extract the *.bin file from the GNU zip file to a location of your choice and begin the install proces
  3. 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 1.5, Nform Shutdown Client; User Manual (R01/14) (SL-53625) 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.
