Hi Amou,

Cool!

You can download the 64bit viber.deb and then right click on the file and select "Convert deb to xzm" from the menu.
You will have your module within minutes and just activate it.

Enjoy.

Just noted that you are using 486 version. You will need to download Porteus 64bit version and test out the above steps.

I knew that there is a 64 bit version, unfortunately 64 bit version of porteus is a bit heavy for my laptop. So I wondered if anybody can fit 64bit version into 32bit or prepare a 32 bit version from scratch.
Teach me a lesson, I would be really grateful.

1.0 There is the ubuntu method for 32 bit:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/340924/h ... -in-ubuntu

Once unpacked trying to install with Viber.sh:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~/Viber# ./Viber.sh
./Viber.sh: line 13: /root/Viber/./Viber: cannot execute binary file
root@porteus:~/Viber# 
2.0 There is src2pkg, but this will yield a 64 bit package:
viewtopic.php?f=53&t=2531&hilit=src2pkg

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~/Downloads# src2pkg -CWD viber.deb
  Notice - Creating src2pkg-helpers:
  src2pkg uses a shared library and a few programs
  when creating packages. For best compatibility,
  these binaries will be compiled on your system.
  They are then installed in a private directory.
  When done, src2pkg is ready for use.

Searching for symbolic links:

Making symbolic link creation script:
( cd usr/libexec/src2pkg/bin ; rm -rf install )
( cd usr/libexec/src2pkg/bin ; ln -sf ginstall install )

Unless your existing installation script already contains the code
to create these links, you should append these lines to your existing
install script. Now's your chance. :^)

Would you like to add this stuff to the existing install script and
remove the symbolic links ([y]es, [n]o)? n


This next step is optional - you can set the directories in your package
to some sane permissions. If any of the directories in your package have
special permissions, then DO NOT reset them here!

Would you like to reset all directory permissions to 755 (drwxr-xr-x) and
directory ownerships to root.root ([y]es, [n]o)? n

@slaxmax:
They say that you may force the architecture to 32 bit:

Code: Select all

If you are running 32bit system use
wget -O viber64-NoobsLab.com.deb http://goo.gl/wCKnDV
sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i  viber64-NoobsLab.com.deb
Maybe you can try it under crunchbang. I wonder how they install it so that it works under the 32 bit architecture. Where are the files?

@francois

Viber is compiled only in 64 bit library. Run in 32 bit system is impossible.

Try windows version in wine, you need install Wldap32.dll (folder system32 wine) and install openldap package for linux.

Edit: I run viber for windows (32bit) in porteus 32bit, but I don't have viber account and smartphone for validate.

Hi guys
Call me paranoid, but what do you think about:

When you install the Viber App...you will be asked....to allow us access to your mobile device's address book.
A copy of the phone numbers and names...will be stored on our servers.
Viber also maintains a Call Detail Record..numbers of calls made by users, typical destinations, call lengths, network type, etc.
Viber may sometimes...share your Personal Information...and traffic data
with trusted partner service providers and/or agents,
Viber will never share your address book...except as may be required by law.
the Viber servers..are owned and hosted by Amazon
We may disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance.

source:
http://www.viber.com/privacypolicy.html

Hopefully I'm not in someone's address book.

Hello Donald,

Good comment. Would the skype policy be very much different?

Hi francois

I don't think so, but I did not compare the policies up to now.
Isn't skype owned by MS ?
In general, (IMHO), everything that is under US-Law has no Privacy at all.

See how Richard Stallman (founder of GNU) accesses the internet.

"I am careful in how I use the Internet.

I generally do not connect to web sites from my own machine, aside from a few sites I have some special relationship with. I fetch web pages from other sites by sending mail to a program (see git://git.gnu.org/womb/hacks.git) that fetches them, much like wget, and then mails them back to me. Then I look at them using a web browser, unless it is easy to see the text in the HTML page directly. I usually try lynx first, then a graphical browser if the page needs it (but I make sure I have no net connection, so that it won't fetch anything else).

I also browse from other people's computers, with their permission. Since I don't identify myself to the sites I visit, this browsing can't be connected with me.

One consequence of this method is that most of the survellance methods used on the Internet can't see me.

Another consequence is that I never pay for anything on the Web. Anything on the net that requires payment, I don't do. (I made an exception for the fees for the stallman.org domain, since that is connected with me anyway.)

I would not mind paying for a copy of an e-book or music recording on the Internet if I could do so anonymously, and it were ethical in other ways (no DRM or EULA). But that option almost never exists. I keep looking for ways to make it happen."

https://stallman.org/stallman-computing.html

Slaxmax opinion
There is no way to use the internet and have privacy.
Most servers and Internet services are on U.S. servers. No chance go by this network in anonymous.

@francois
I found this interesting on ubunto forum mentioned in francois post earlier:
If you are running 32bit system use
sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i viber.deb
But I really do not know how to figure it out? do we have such a compatlib for 32 bit machines too?

@slaxmax, almost all network based applications being handled by wine are so tricky and may barely connect to the net easily. The last time, I tried putty and that was terrible. Meanwhile I dont know how and where to deploy mentioned .dll file.

@donald
Frankly speaking although SKYPE which officially belongs to Microsoft and generally infrastructure of Internet is in hands of U.S. government. However, we have the freedom to choose our favorite packages on Porteus. Unfortunately, These days privacy on every aspect of life is drained.
Teach me a lesson, I would be really grateful.

@amou:

You have to use the crunchbang linux ditribution or debian linux and install it on your computer. And just follow the instructions in thread mentioned. If it does not work then ask on their forum. At least you will be linux.

Then maybe, you could look where the files of viber were installed and try to install the same on porteus. This last part could be a lot of work with few or no results.

@amou

It is impossible to run x64 applications on x86 OS. Opposite is possible using multilib.
Another way is to use virtualbox and install x64 OS and the application you want, obviously if the processor supports x64 instructions.
