bos.rte Base operating system run time AIX OS installation image or IBM support
bos.rte.libc Base application runtime library AIX OS installation image or Fileset information for bos.rte.libc

At least one of the following locale-specific filesets must be installed on your system. You can find the filesets in your AIX OS installation image or IBM support.

You can view information about the installed filesets by using the lslpp command. For example, to determine if the required filesets have been installed, use the following command:

lslpp -L bos.adt.include bos.adt.lib bos.adt.libm bos.loc.\* bos.rte bos.rte.libc
Note: If one of the required filesets is missing, an error message might be generated. An example follows.
MISSING REQUISITES: The following filesets are required by one or more of the 
selected filesets listed above. They are not currently installed and could not 
be found on the installation media.

bos.adt.libm 6.1.5.1 # Base Level Fileset

This message indicates that the bos.adt.libm fileset is required but not installed.

To install a missing fileset, use the following command:

# installp -acXgd installation_path fileset

In this command, installation_path represents the location of the fileset to be installed.
