Can I run WAS8 on Linux 5.4? If so, will that configuration be supported by IBM?

    Kevin,

    It runs on RHEL 5.4, but it is an unsupported configuration.

    There's a GLIBC defect which can result in a (rare/difficult to hit) segfault under the JRE bundled by v8r0, so we had to prereq these uncharacteristically recent fixpack levels for Linux.

    Older releases of enterprise Linux that didn't make the cut (RHEL 4.x, SLES 9.x) are a different story -- they won't (necessarily) run at release time, or won't continue to run.

    For development or evaluation, RHEL 5.4 should be perfectly viable.

    Kevin,

    For context, I assumed your question was based on the supporting OS levels documented for the beta refresh (which are later then RHEL 5.4):

    https://www14.software.ibm.com/iwm/web/cc/earlyprograms/websphere/wsasoa/download.shtml

    Refer to the link above for comprehensive prerequisites.
