1) check that the Linux variant is supported.  See the SCL below

2) if it is supported, install RALUS on the Linux server.

the Linux variant is redhat Enterprise Linux 5.8 x64,install RALUS on the Linux server.

AOF is not supported on this release, so your opened file will not be backed up.  See the footnote in the SCL
