NOTE:On Linux, the X Window System and Open Motif are required by the GUI GroupWise agent server consoles for the Post Office Agent, the Message Transfer Agent, and the Internet Agent.

A Linux repository should be available when you run the GroupWise Installation Wizard. Apache, Tomcat, the JRE or JDK, and the ModProxy Module are automatically installed from the Linux repository if they are not already present on the Linux server.
If no Linux repository is available during the GroupWise installation, you are prompted to manually install these required components from the Linux media, and then restart the GroupWise installation.
