    Unanswered: Installing DB2 Express C -

    I'm trying to install DB2 Express C v9.7 on my PC with Fedora 12. I downloaded db2exc_971_LNX_x86.tar.gz and ran the DB2 Setup Wizard and got all the way through the installation. Then I ran the "db2val" command and got the DBI1379I error, as below.
    This says I'm missing files or files are wrong size. Then it says to re-install the Product from the installation media ( I don't know if this means from the DB2 Setup Installation). Well I tried it through the command line and it says "A fix pack installation is not permitted on "DB2 Express-C".

    Could someone please help me? I need to know how to Re-install the products by running the following command from the installation media, installFixPack -f level.

    Thank you.

    db2inst1@carla bin]$ db2val
    DBI1379I The db2val command is running. This can take several minutes.



    DBI1334E Installation file validation failed for the DB2 copy installed
    at /opt/ibm/db2/V9.7. Reason code = 1.

    Explanation:

    1. Some features or components have missing files or files with the
    wrong size.
    2. The embedded runtime path for some DB2 library or executable files is
    not set properly.

    User response:

    Perform one of the following actions:

    1. Re-install the products by running the following command from the
    installation media, installFixPack -f level. Rerun the db2val
    command.
    2. For root installations, run
    <DB2-installation-path>/install/db2chgpath as root. For non-root
    installations, run <DB2-installation-path>/install/db2chgpath as the
    copy owner. Rerun the db2val command.

    What do you get if you run "db2val -o"?

    You cannot apply a fixpack to DB2 Express-C. If you still have problems, you will have to uninstall and try again.

    Installing DB2 Express C

    After all that, I ran "db2val" again and it's successful. I haven't changed anything!
    How weird is that? Ah, I think I know what happened...I ran the original "db2val" logged in as "db2inst1" and not "root". Thank you for your response and help.

    You may be the only person in the world to ever run that command.
