MKS client installation under Linux


MKS client installation under Linux


I'm trying to install a MKS client bin in my Ubuntu 14.04 linux OS, but I can't tell if it installed or not. A complete log of the installation as follows:

$./mksclient.bin -i console

Preparing to install...
Extracting the JRE from the installer archive...
Unpacking the JRE...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
strings: '/lib/': No such file

Launching installer...


Installer User Interface Mode Not Supported

The installer cannot run in this UI mode. To specify the interface mode, use the -i command-line option, followed by the UI mode identifier. The valid UI modes identifiers are GUI, Console, and Silent.


Can someone tell me where can I find a detailed installation manual somewhere? Many thanks!



Hi Shijia,

Check out this public knowledge article, which is likely related to this error you are getting, when you're attempting to install;

Runtime dependencies for Integrity Client on 64-bit Linux systems

The actual client is 32-bit, so certain 32-bit libraries are required on your Linux machine.
