    Unanswered: fixpack upgrade - The 32-bit library file libpam.so is not found on the system

    we are upgrading db2 v9.7 fp2 to v9.7 FP10 on Linux
    Linux xxxxxxxx 2.6.16.60-0.37_f594963d-smp #1 SMP Mon Mar 23 13:39:48 UTC 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    during fixpack upgrade we do
    ./db2_install -b /opt/ibm/db2/V9.7FP6 -p ESE -n -l /tmp/db2v97.install.log

    and fixpack install command:
    ./installFixPack -b /opt/ibm/db2/V9.7FP6 -l /tmp/db2fp6.install.log

    gives this warning:
    WARNING:
    The 32-bit library file libpam.so is not found on the system.

    log files have everything 'success'.
    do we need to be concern or we can proceed with the upgrade?
    could not find anything clear when i googled it.
    thanks in advance

    Got the same warning when upgrading to v9.7 FP6 on zLinux.

    # ./installFixPack -b /opt/IBM/db2/V9.7
    WARNING:
    DBT3534W The db2prereqcheck utility determined that ASLR is set to ON and that this could cause issues with some tools.
    WARNING:
    The 32-bit library file libpam.so is not found on the system.


    Found that db2prereqcheck was changed to check for this library in FP6. Safe to ignore this warning. You can create a symbolic link of libpam.so to libpam.so.0 to get rid of this warning. Here is what we have (no link for this library):

    ~> ls -l /lib/libpam.*
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 2011-12-15 10:26 /lib/libpam.so.0 -> libpam.so.0.81.5
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 41660 2011-10-25 17:00 /lib/libpam.so.0.81.5

    we ignored it as well as this library is not needed on our 64-bit system. everything is looking good so far.

    thanks
