I written an instructional document on Installing and Configuring IBM Domino 9 Social Edition on CentOS 6 Enterprise Linux and posted it to my downloads area. I hope it helps alleviate some of the fear surrounding the idea of installing on Linux. It is aimed at YellowHeads (having some experience with Domino installations on Windows) who are thinking about stepping into the world of Linux. The document is focused on 64 bit Linux, but calls out differences from 32 bit installations where necessary. Even though it is aimed specifically at CentOS 6, the instructions should work for any RHEL or (with some changes to handle DEB vs. RPM) or Debian-based linux version -although as I understand it the only supported Linux distributions are RHEL 6 and SUSE Linux 11.

With CentOS 6 being released just a couple of weeks ago, I figured it was a good time to demonstrate installing IBM Lotus Domino and IBM Lotus Traveler on this particular flavor of Linux. I would have done it sooner, but I was on holiday and frankly fishing, kayaking, driving awesome cars, and shooting stuff beats computer geekery every single time. This video kicks off the series. In this video I demonstrate the installation of CentOS 6. I'm using a Virtual Machine for the installation. VM Software is Oracle's VirtualBox. I've set it up for a single processor, 20GB HDD, 128MB Video Memory and 3GB RAM.

In this course you will learn how to configure and administer IBM® SmartCloud™ Notes® in a hybrid environment, as well as support end users and configure the Traveler service and IBM SmartCloud Notes for BlackBerry® Hosted Services. Refer to the Getting Started links below for information on using this course. Even though these documents are organized in a course format, you can also use the documents on an individual basis, to answer a question or solve an issue you may be encountering.
