Install Camfrog Server on Ubuntu Linux 8.10

Camfrog doesn't offer a Ubuntu version of their product, so here's a guide in getting it to work for Ubuntu 8.10.

  1. Download the RPM here:

  2. Install alien: sudo apt-get install alien

  3. Install apt-get install lib32stdc++6

  4. Change directory to the file you downloaded from CamFrog and type: alien camfrog_x.xx.rpm

  5. Now install the .deb package: dpkg -i camfrogserver_4.2-2_all.deb

  6. Now just configure according to the instructions in the manual: man camfrogserver.conf

  7. You may want to delete /etc/rc.d/init.d/camfrogserver since it won't work under Ubuntu.
