Error description

  • DB2 version 11.1 incorrectly lists libstdc++.so.5 as a
    prerequisite for installation on Linux 390 (Linux 64-bit,
    zSeries), but there is
    no actual runtime dependency for that library. Currently
    db2prereqcheck reports the following when library is not
    installed:
    $ db2prereqcheck -i -l
    Requirement not matched for DB2 database "Server" . Version:
    "11.1.0.0".
    Summary of prerequisites that are not met on the current system:
    
    DBT3510E  The db2prereqcheck utility was unable to find the
    following required library file: "libstdc++.so.5".
    

Local fix

  • If libstdc++.so.5 is the only not met prerequisite listed by
    db2prereqcheck, installation can be forced using '-f sysreq'
    switch:
    $ ./db2_install -f sysreq
