PureMessage for UNIX is compatible with 64-bit Linux Operating systems.

However, you must perform additional steps to ensure that the installation runs successfully.

What to do

Installing PureMessage for UNIX on Ubuntu 64-bit

Ubuntu provides 32-bit compatibility libraries named ia32-libs. These are required to run PureMessage.

  1. To install these libraries, run the following command as the root user:

    aptitude install ia32-libs

  2. Ensure that is not specified anywhere in the /etc/hosts file. Delete any instance of this IP address. Ubuntu adds this setting by default during installation, and it inhibits communication between PureMessage and its database (PostgreSQL).

    Important: Take care not to delete any instance of (localhost).

Once these steps are complete, follow the instructions in the PureMessage for UNIX Installation Guide.
