IBM i Access Client Solutions… on Arch

This is a follow up to my earlier post about connecting to a cloudy AS/400 (yes, an actual AS/400 running V5R3M0).

As I mentioned at the time, I had run into problems installing iSeries Access because IBM had removed the RPMs from their site, I asked about this and the package maintainer very helpfully provided me with a collection of links to the various versions. However, he also mentioned that the source files were removed from the IBM website because they want everyone to use the IBM i Access Client Solutions. This is in the AUR as iacs, so I thought I’d try this first.

It works… beautifully.

And I do love a snappy application name.
