  • Install the pre-requisties
sudo apt-get install alien rpm libssl0.9.8
  • Create the lib 64 folder
sudo mkdir /usr/lib64
  • Get the tarballs from the ftp server
ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/storage/tivoli-storage-management/maintenance/client/v7r1/Linux/LinuxX86/BA/v710/7.1.0.0-TIV-TSMBAC-LinuxX86.tar

  • Extract the tarballs into the /tmp folder
  • Convert the RPM packages to DEB packages
sudo alien -k --scripts gskcrypt64-XXXX.linux.x86_64.rpm
