DB2 installation on Mandrake 10.1

Hi all,

I am trying to install IBM DB2 V8.1 on Mandrake Linux 10.1.

Java is installed and when I try to run db2setup as a root, I get the
following error:

[root@EHOEKX cdrom]# ./db2setup
DBI1190I db2setup is preparing the DB2 Setup Wizard which will
guide you through the program setup process. Please
wait.
/mnt/cdrom/db2/linux/install/db2jinst: line 130: 18354 Segmentation
fault $JAVA_PATH/$JAVA_INTERPRETER $JAVA_OPTIONS -cp
$JAVA_CLASSPATH $DB2SetupRun "$@" 2>/tmp/db2setup.err.running
Does anyone know what this means?
And how I can solve it

regards

Install DB2 V8.2 instead. DB2 V8.1 is too old for 2.6 kernels. See
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/DB2-HOWTO/index.html for experiences with
installing V8.2 on Mandrake 10.1 (Community).

It means the version of Java that you have installed is not the IBM JRE,
and it also means you're installing DB2 V8.1 on a 2.6 kernel-based
distribution. DB2 V8.2 offers great support for 2.6 kernels.

If you absolutely have to install DB2 V8.1, uninstall whatever the
current version of Java is on your system, download and install the
latest version of the IBM JRE from
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/jdk/index.html, then install DB2
V8.1. Note that you will not be eligible for support, as Mandrake 10.1
is not on the validated distributions list:
http://ibm.com/db2/linux/validate -- but it's fine for learning and
playing around.

Mandrake Corporate Server 3.0 has been validated with DB2 V8.2, if you
want to deploy DB2 in a production environment on a Mandrake distribution.
And how I can solve it
