Pinned topic PCom not supported 132-Column in iSeries Access for Linux v7 on CentOS 5.5

‏2011-07-05T07:34:03Z |
Dear Support,
Env.:
. iSeries Access for Linux v7.1 installed on CentOS 5.5

The installation has been successful, and most things work fine.
On the PCom session, even after we configure it to 132-column, the spoolfile still cannot display 132-column, but only 80 column.

If the same iSeries Access is installed on Red hat v.4, the PCom can display 132 column OK.

From Infocenter, I can find this:
========================================================================
These are the Linux requirements:
•GNU C Library (GLibc 2.2)
•Red Hat package manager (RPM 3.0)
•Runtime environment (OpenMotif 2.0 or later for the 5250 emulator)
•unixODBC driver manager version 2.0.11 or later must be installed on the client. See the unixODBC Project web site for more information on the driver manager and to download the latest level of the driver manager.
Note: If you recompile the unixODBC driver manager, the ./configure --prefix default is /usr/local. If you use this default, update your shared library (/etc/ld.so.conf) and executable paths to include it.
Recommended Linux Distributions are listed below.
•SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 and later
•Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and later
========================================================================

Here it does state about CentOS, although we know that CentOS is a distribution of Red Hat. I continue to search and found that a number of IBM client product do not CentOS:

In Https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21399022 ,
"Neither TPM nor TPMfOSd supports the CentOS operating system as a management server platform or target device."

In http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=166235 ,
"unfortunately IBM Director not supported with CentOS at all"

May I ask if iSeries Access for Linux v7.1 supports installation on CentOS 5.5 ?
Or not being able to display 132-column is a bug?

Hear from your advice. Thanks...Caleb

    Additional info:
    132-column can be displayed on Pcom fine if the same iSeries Access on Linux is installed on:
    • RHEL 5
    • Ubuntu 10.10
    132-column cannot be displayed on Pcom if the same iSeries Access on Linux is installed on the CentOS version.
    Hear from you advice. Thanks...Caleb
