    Hi,

    I guess you are using response file for DB2 installation. Can you please attach the response file, trace file & log file here. You can generate the trace file by using -t <trace file> option in db2setup command. Also paste the output of uname -a command and let me know the size of downloaded express-c package.

    Meanwhile could you please try GUI installation using db2setup command and see if it throws the same error(add -t <trace file> option to generate the trace file).

    Thanks

    Thank you for reply. I have attached the three files that you have asked, but that is log file. This error was through the GUI Installation of DB2.

    Output of "uname -a"
    Linux sdj-MS-7636 3.2.0-27-generic-pae #43-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 6 15:06:05 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    I have logged in as root user. The size of the Download package was 437 MB as .tar.gz after decompressing as .tar it became 497 MB.

    You have attached only one trace file tracefile_lp. Some more trace files should be there... try "ls tracefile*" and attached all the trace files here.

    Hello,

    Was the directory /opt/ibm/db2/V10.1 empty when you started the installation ?

    Had you already installed a product in that directory ?

    yes the directory was empty. I fixed the prob, the prob is with extraction. I converted tar.gz to tar file then extracted. The prob is here, now I extracted the tar file directly to the expc folder and get it done... :)
