Has anyone successfully got FlexUnit to work with AIR in headless mode on 64-bit Linux server?
The problem seems to be that the AIR runtime does not want to install on 64-bit Ubuntu server (9.10). I have tried various ways of trying to get it to install, but no luck.
I was able to get FlexUnit to headlessly run my AIR unit tests on a 32-bit Ubuntu server 9.10 VMware image, but I had to install a lot of stuff, maybe there is an easier way.
Here are my rough notes if it helps anyone:
Ubunto 9.10 Server 32-bit VMWare image
sudo aptitude update # refresh apt's cache
sudo aptitude upgrade # run the upgrade
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-core
sudo apt-get install openbox
sudo apt-get install vnc4server
sudo apt-get install subversion
sudo apt-get install ant #(gets java jre)
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
sudo apt-get install ssh
in windows download adobeair-18.104.22.16810.deb from prerelease.adobe.com, WinSCP to ubuntu
sudo apt-get -f install (no package)
sudo apt-get install xorg gnome-core gdm gnome-applets gnome-system-tools gnome-utils ubuntu-artwork compiz-gnome firefox sysv-rc-conf
sudo dpkg -i adobeair-22.214.171.12410.deb
See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1305659&page=2 to make it not start ui desktop on system startup
start on (runlevel 
and started hal
and tty-device-added KERNEL=tty7
and (graphics-device-added or stopped udevtrigger))
stop on runlevel 
sudo shutdown -h now (make sure ui does not come up on restart)
Now, use this to start/stop desktop: sudo initctl start/stop gdm
run vncserver once to set up password
can now run FlexUnit headlessly
@RoberEtBurke - A quick google turned up this http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/521/cpsid_52132.html. Looks like Adobe only supports up to Ubuntu 9.04 according the article, but the steps may be worth a shot. There are a lot of dependencies listed in the article; based on your steps below looks like you may need those dependencies to get things working. Let us know how it goes.
Thanks for the link.
