FP7 size on linux

P: n/a
Dear all,

FP1 to FP6 where approximately 300 Mb.

FP7 is 687 Mb !!! I wonder why, in that case, you don't allow a full image
or fixpack application on Linux, depending on wheter ESE is or is not
present.

Can't you do the same as for Windows ?

Btw, thanks for the db2iprune on Windows, great ! I'm waiting for the same
on Linux/Unix platforms.

Best regards,

Jean-Marc

I was told by IBM support. FP7 is a full install image. But I forgot to ask
them a following question, if so, how to control license?

If I recall correct, this is not a new command, it has been used on Sun
Solaris since Version5.1.

You can 'install' the original license from the CD with db2licm after
installing FP7.

FP7 is a full image for windows, but is not for Linux (cf fixpack readme and
error message 'no db2 fileset found').

I wonder, regarding the size of this fixpack, if it would not be possible to
do the same for Linux as of Windows.
And get the db2iprune command, so that you can roughly eliminate 200 to 300
Mb on this fixpack.

JM
