Pinned topic WEBSphere MQ Client Install Error on -accept

‏2010-02-19T16:30:59Z |
I am trying to install MQ Client on Red Hat Version 5.4 server x86_64 bit server...

When I downloaded the software, this is what I downloaded:

5. WebSphere MQ Client 5.3 Released Product 09 Jan 2008 127MB Linux for System x 86Series

When I try the first step of there process it fails trying to find shared libraries:

  1. /tmp/rpm/MQClientwithSSL/ -accept
/tmp/rpm/MQClientwithSSL/lap/jre/bin/exe/java: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

ERROR: Installation will not succeed unless the license agreement can be accepted.

The MQ Client is 32 bit, but I am told it should work on 64 bit server...

A locate shows that the module is on the server, both 32 and 64 bit:

  1. locate

My LD_LIBRARY_PATH was set as:
  1. echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH

The ldd command on this shows the module it's complaining that it can't find, and it's location, so doesn't that mean it actually knows it's location ??

  1. ldd /tmp/rpm/MQClientwithSSL/lap/jre/bin/exe/java => (0xffffe000) => /lib/ (0xf7f96000) => /lib/ (0xf7f7f000) => /lib/ (0xf7f7b000) => /lib/ (0xf7e35000)
/lib/ (0xf7faf000)

I did not see /lib in the path, so I added it to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH, but still had the same results:


  1. echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH

  1. /tmp/rpm/MQClientwithSSL/ -accept
/tmp/rpm/MQClientwithSSL/lap/jre/bin/exe/java: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

If I add the /lib64 to the path, it finds it, but fails with the following:

error while loading shared libraries: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

Any one have any ideas for help ??

    MQ Version 5.3 is somewhat old now. I think the underlying problem may be related to the NPTL thread library being the default. You can download a trial version 7.0.1. The support document includes a section on installing MQ 5.3 on Red Hat Enterprise 3.0 which may help you, although I do not know if MQ 5.3 is actually supported on your OS.

    There is also a WebSphere MQ forum where you might find more expert help in MQ.
