If you try to open this with evince (default .pdf viewer in Gnome) it will ask for a password.
pdftotext (comes with the software suite poppler) says:
Error: Weird encryption info
Error: Incorrect password
It’s only the material starting with M0* that has this issue, this has also been seen with other documents. Maybe this is because they were created with a too new version of Adobe Acrobat that evince/pdftotext doesn’t support.
The rest of the material are going to be public and they are user/admin guides anyway. But the M0* files are from the actual course material for the 16G so this is why.
The solution on RHEL6 x64: install FoxitReader. Download the .rpm – then hit ‘rpm -Uvh FoxitReader-1.1-0.fc9.i386.rpm’ and it will be installed. To start it just hit ‘FoxitReader’.
Anyway I think it’s nice of Brocade to pre-release the course material for those doing the beta-test. If you want the real material the cheapest is 650$ and then you get the material, narration of the pdfs (usually good quality, not just reading off the presentations) and a few quite good lab exercises.
Just threading along here with the material, slowly but steady.
I’m starting with the NPIV / Access Gateway stuff. It’s a bit more complicated than just a switch that isn’t its own domain, it’s also mapping the virtual WWN to the N_ports (a switch in AG mode has N_ports that connect to F_ports in another switch). Usually N_ports are on hosts’ and targets’ ports and the switches’ has the F_ports.
That told me to install some stuff and then install the Guest Addition stuff. After that and a reboot HP Vroom no longer worked. But resolution was fine! Grah. Then I just used the “Live CD” of Ubuntu instead, or the normal .iso but no need to install, just boot from it.
How do I proceed? – Did not find anything online quick enough that would help me. The other requirements I could also find in my system..
I tried to run ./firefox-bin which complained about libxul.so which I also have in my system.
I tried to run it in a sudo, no difference.
If anybody reads this and has some ideas or so – please let me know :)
So I tried Google Chrome instead (haven’t tried this before) and wow, compared to Firefox 3.6.x which is the default one on RHEL6 it is really fast!
This is the link I used to install it and it worked perfectly:
