Installing Maximo 7.6 on Redhat Linux 6.6 (Part one of three)

First, I have a confession. Despite many attempts over the years, I have never mastered Linux. A little personal and professional history: I started with Macintosh in 1986, later moving to Windows (professionally in 1998 when my company made the switch, and personally in 2003). Fortunately, we have a lot of resources at IBM for the newcomer to Linux. Add to that the vast amount of information readily available on the Web, and the able advice of my younger colleagues, who were instructed using Linux when they were in school. Me? I had a semester of Pascal waaaay back, on a VAX, using a VDT. So, please bear with me as I learn from my mistakes.
From Passport Advantage, download the Maximo Asset Management 7.6 installation files for your OS. There will be five: one for Maximo, one for DB2, and three for WebSphere. Go to Maxi
I moved all of the .tar.gz files from \roo
Being impetuous, I just ran the installer.
Some familiar looking screens...
Sure, let's install it all. Click next...

Let's check the other two prerequisite failures.
Um, yeah. I did not read the manual and see where I am now.
Now looking at the installation guide, I checked the Linux requirements.
It didn't work. I did a little more digging, specifically for my distro (RHEL 6.6).
Modified ~root/.bash_profile to add those values and saved
Ran source ~root/.bash_profile
... well, that didn't work.
Logged out as root, logged in again. That worked. Your mileage may vary.
When I started the installer up again, it passed all pre-requisites except for this one (which I should have noticed before!)
Thank you for reading today's exciting adventures in Red Hat Enterprise Linux for newbies. Tomo
