db2_install error

P: n/a

Hi

When I try to install the db I get this :

# ./db2_install
/home/oberon/movie/exp/disk1/db2/linux/install/../bin/db2langdir:

DBI1055E The message file db2install.cat cannot be found.

Explanation: The message file required by this
script is missing from the system; it may have been
deleted or the database products may have been loaded
incorrectly.

User Response: Verify that the product option containing
the message file is installed correctly. If there are
verification errors; reinstall the product option.

Any idea what is wrong ?

You appear to be missing the C++ runtime that DB2 requires. You need to
provide information about your operating system to determine exactly
what is required. You also didn't indicate if you are installing a 32 or
64 bit DB2.

The messages are generated by RPM processing when the required
prerequisites for an install are not found.

On my RHEL4 system (32 bit), the required code was installed as part of:
compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.3
Check one of the online RPM repositories, download the RPM and install
it with the command:
rpm -iv compat-libstdc++*.rpm
then try the DB2 install again.

I'm using "Linux From Scratch"

it appears that DB2 requires an old version of libstdc++ (I have the
one supplied by GCC 4.0.1 and it requires the one supplied by GCC
3.3.6)

Linux supports keeping multiple versions of the C++ runtime. That's why
I recommended:
ompat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.3

You can try installing with:
rpm -iv --test ompat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.3
to see if there are nay conflicts. Remove the --test option to do the
install.
