The time has come to get my LogMeIn VPN working again. The learning curve was not near as steep as this time (I didn’t loose any hair!), but I did still have a few issues.
First, I downloaded the RPM from Logmein’s website: logmein-hamachi-188.8.131.52-1.x86_64.rpm
When I went to use the VPN, I got this message:
Hamachi does not seem to be running. Run '/etc/init.d/logmein-hamachi start' to start daemon.
That seemed like an easy fix, but it wouldn’t start. I got this error message when I tried to start the service:
/etc/init.d/logmein-hamachi: line 28: /lib/lsb/init-functions: No such file or directory
To fix it, I found a bug reference that suggested I should install a package like redhat-lsb-4.0-6.fc15. You should be able to do it with this command:
su -c "yum install redhat-lsb"
After installing that, the VPN service started fine:
su -c "/etc/init.d/logmein-hamachi start" Starting LogMeIn Hamachi VPN tunneling engine logmein-hamac[ OK ]
One thing I did notice is that the service doesn’t automatically start like it did when I was using it on Ubuntu. I don’t know why, but this is actually what I want anyway. I can just start the service when I want to use it with:
su -c "/etc/init.d/logmein-hamachi start"
