    Unhappy Unanswered: db2setup V8.1 Fedora Core 4 Hangs

    Hi all,

    I am trying to install DB2 V8.1 on Fedora Core 4.
    When I run db2setup I get the message:

    "DBI1190I db2setup is preparing the DB2 Setup Wizard which will guide you through the rest of the program setup process. Please wait."

    But after 3 hours nothing happens...
    No relevant process is running.

    Pls help, what might be the issue???

    Thanks a lot for your time inadvance.

    Try using the debug functionality when doing the setup ... IIRC, the option is -d ... Check the relevant doc

    Here are some steps for installing on DB2 8.1 on RH9 that I have used. This
    might work on other RH versions also:

    DB2-RH 9 Linux Installation Instructions

    1. Install IBM Java 1.4.2 (or latest code) free from IBM website.

    2. Set display (where host_name is your host)
    xhost + host_name
    export DISPLAY=host_name:0

    3. Set Kernel for DB2 install only (not needed later)

    4. Run ./db2setup
    Install DB2 with an instance but DO NOT install Tools Catalog

    5. Reboot

    6. Update java path (your path may be different depending on which Java you
    install). This will point DB2 to the correct JDK for DB2 and Admin Server.

    db2 update dbm cfg using jdk_path /opt/IBMJava2-142
    db2 update admin cfg using jdk_path /opt/IBMJava2-142

    7. You can now install Tools Catalog in you want one.

    8. Update Linux parms
    The default setting for the msgmni kernel parameter only allows a couple of simultaneous connections to DB2. To set this value at boot time, append the following lines to /etc/sysctl.conf:
    # Sets maximum number of message queues to 128
    # Set this to 1024 or higher on production systems kernel.msgmni = 128

    9. Download and install FP10
