Pinned topic Unable to install IDS on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit

‏2012-04-30T21:40:46Z |
I'm not able to install IDS 3.1.1 in Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit, and I get these error messages:


Preparing to install... Extracting the JRE from the installer archive... Unpacking the JRE... Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive... Configuring the installer 

for 

this system
's environment... strings: 
'/lib/libc.so.6': No such file   Launching installer...   ./install.bin: 2506: exec: /tmp/install.dir.19443/Linux/resource/jre/bin/java: not found


It means IDS installer is looking directly for /lib/libc.so.6 while libc.so has been moved to a different location in newer versions of Ubuntu, see:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/40416/why-is-lib-libc-so-6-missing

I don't know how to bipass this or modify the installer to retreive the correct file. Please advise.

    Does IDS here stand for the IBM Data Studio product v3.1.1? The error does not seem to reflect Data Studio. There's no "install.bin" in Data Studio installation. Please clarify and provide the location/URL where you downloaded this software from.

    Thanks,

    Yes, IDS stands for IBM Data Studio.

    Due to the timing I suspect the original poster is (as I am) trying to install the DS 3.1.1 package shipped on the DB2 Express-C download page (for DB2 10.1).

    While you could probably get round this problem by creating logical links, it really should be fixed in the installer so that it doesn't look for the library in a particular path but allow the library loader to search its paths for the library.

    I create the symbolic link, installer didn't complain about missing libc.so.6 but said
    "Graphical installers are not supported by the VM. The console mode will be used instead..."

    I installed anyway but when I launch datastudio nothing happens.

    Do I have to install ia32-libs?

    @0EEY_Sergio_Samayoa, what is the OS that you're trying to install this on?

    Is it Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit like the previous postings?

    Just for clarity, Ubuntu isn't a supported OS. You can check here for the officially supported OS: http://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27024588#Component__Data_Studio_administration_client_Operating_Systems.

    However, let's try anyway to see why the product doesn't come up after your installation. From the error you reported that the installer went straight to the console mode, it's probably because your environment DISPLAY setting isn't set. From your shell, can you do the following: "env | grep DISPLAY" ... reply back with what you see.
