    Unanswered: db2_install . Is it only for 32 bit machines ?

    In lack of GUI in my DB2 server (Ubuntu 12.4 headless)
    and as advised I am using db2_install as root user . I was told db2_install is
    deprecated but still works

    I was also told to carefully run db2prereqcheck and adhere every single demand there .
    db2prereqcheck finished ok (says so) but is missing a 32 bit
    I am using a 64 bit server and the 64 bit libstdc is there .
    The question : Is db2_install meant for 32 bit machines only ?

    because when running the db2_install I am stuck with the following error:

    ./db2_install -b /opt/ibm/db2/V10.1

    I am asked to choose one of : ESE, CLIENT, RTCL

    I chose : ESE

    The asked if to include DB2 pureScale feature and answered 'no'

    and in response got an exception:

    DB2 installation is being initialized.

    *** glibc detected *** /tmp/db2.tmp.5075/db2/linuxamd64/install//db2iure: malloc(): memory corruption: 0x0000000001e4fd10 ***

    ./ 0x16)[0x7f7739f211b6]

    what is causing this ?

    I am using Ubuntu 12.4 headless (server no GUI)

    yes 32 bit library needs to be installed for support of 32 bit clients

    since db2_install is pronounced as deprecated I avoid this route
    and finally managed to tun db2setup as root with GUI ( had to solve the problem of enabling root to work with X server)

    db2setup run as root on Ubuntu

    still a similar problem .

    In some cases the db2setup (v10.1) run from GUI as root ( Ubuntu 12.4 image with 8G memory) returns the same glibc error (memory corruption ) as mentioned above (previous post of this thread).

    Did someone saw this problem ? any remedy ?
