 Problems installing DB2 7.1 on Linux

Hello --

I'm hoping somebody has witnessed a similar problem and can give me a
hand.

I'm attempting to install DB2 7.1 Personal Edition under Linux (RedHat
7.0 to be exact).

I've extracted the tarball correctly (-xvf) and everything seems to be
OK, I've always correctly installed the latest version of the Korn shell
which DB2's install scripts require.

Here's my problem:
When I run the "db2setup" program as per the installation instructions,
I receive the following error:
./db2inst: error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.4: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory

Can anyone please offer any advice on how to handle this problem? What's
going wrong?

Thanks for any/all help!
regards;
..Bill

Hi Bill,

Redhat 7 has a new version of libncurses (libncurses.so.5).  There is
probably a compatability library that you can install so that you can run
libncurses using binaries built on Redhat 6 (or other systems where
libncurses.so.4 is available).

Yep. See the DB2 V7.1 for Linux HOWTO
(http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/DB2-HOWTO/index.html) for the exact name
of the library RPM.
