Installing DB2 Personal Edition on Debian GNU/Linux

 Installing DB2 Personal Edition on Debian GNU/Linux

Hi all,

Has anyone done the above? (installed DB2 personal edition (7.1)
on Debian testing) - no weird hardware - it's an x86 single
processor box.

My problems have been with rpm (unsurprisingly). First db2setup
is hard-coded to look for /bin/rpm (so I created a sym link to
/usr/bin/rpm), and second the rpm .deb didn't initialise the
/var/lib/rpm database stuff. Running rpm --init-db gives an error
because there's no /var/lib/rpm directory - creating it makes the
error go away, but since there are no packages installed by rpm,
I get a huge amount of silly messages like "/bin/sh is needed by
db2cliv71-7.1.0-40".

Anyone help me out in getting this installed? I'd prefer not to
have to change distribution to get this working (not least
because I don't have any RedHat disks about)

Cheers,
Dave.

Following up to myself... I sorted out most of the issues I was
having in the meantime, the rpm issue (described above) was
solved by creating a dummy rpm, which called the real one with
--force --nodeps in the event where it was installing.

I'm having a problem with db2cc now, though. I have modified the
script to remove the -nojit option from the jre flags, I have
created a link called jre to the kava executable in
$JAVA_HOME/bin and $JAVA_HOME/jre/bin (this is for IBM's Java2
(jdk 1.3.1)). On running db2cc I get the following error...
Error: can't find libjava.so
I have found libjava.so in the JDK install, it's in jre/bin. So I
added $JAVA_HOME/jre/bin to my LD_LIBRARY_PATH, but I still get
the same error.

Has anyone seen this before? Should I avoid Java2 altogether and
go back to 1.1.8?

Cheers,
Dave.

Check out the howto at

http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/DB2-HOWTO/index.html

It has instructions for installing manually on Debian.
