Pinned topic Illegal instruction calling db2usrinf from db2setup

‏2012-08-23T20:53:51Z |
Hello,
I have seen that other have received this error but I am not sure it has been resolved. I get this 'illegal instruction' error when running dbsetup and it gives the illegal instruction when calling db2usrinf. I am running debian 6 on an intel celeron 32 bit but if I run db2prereqcheck everything passes: kernel, c++ libraries. Is it just that it won't install on debian??

root@psjlinux:/downloads/db2/expc/db2/linux/bin# ./db2usrinf
Illegal instruction

    I never received an answer but I believe they won't support a 32bit architecture. I had a similar problem with websphere since their java doesn't support it and they simply responded that they didn't update their documentation to reflect this even though the prereqcheck(sp?) script found no problems.

    DB2 works fine on 32 bit architecture and I am able to install DB2 on 32 bit Ubuntu and Debian.
    I guess here the issue is with the processor type which is not supported(just a guess). Here is my ubuntu and debian vm configuration. Unfortunately I don't have that setup where I can repro this issue to find out the exact problem. If you are using vm box then let me know the location from where you have downloaded.

    Ubuntu
    $ uname -a
    Linux ubuntu 2.6.32-24-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Aug 20 14:24:04 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
    Debian
    user@debian:~$ uname -a
    Linux debian 2.6.32-5-686 #1 SMP Wed Jan 12 04:01:41 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux

    Thanks

    I know the processor was the issue with WebSphere because IBM's java VM didn't like it, though, like DB2 the db2prereqcheck passes. I have seen your screenshot but I immediately get an illegal instruction and never get a GUI installer like you do but I believe its like you said and is the processor. I am going to install it on a vm with Debian 6 to see what happens.

    P.S. My debian box is also 2.6.32-5-686
