    Unanswered: db2setup run as root from Ubuntu 12.4

    I have ubuntu 12.4 machine with 8GB memory

    Running db2setup as a regular user works fine (non root install). No complain

    Running as root starts GUI and fails quickly (with no data entry) with the following db2setup.log and db2setup.err

    Seems some JVM problems which I do not understand .

    Can someone give an advice for the reason of failure and remedy ?

    I attach log files and some (the only file I have ) cited in db2setup.err
    the others are missing
    Note that the file referenced in db2setup.log exists (/home/dubi/ese/db2/linuxamd64/install/db2ckgpfs)

    There is enough space on the local disk

    Ensure you are installing from a *minimum* of the Fixpack-2 image for the db2 server if your target operating system for the db2 server is Ubuntu 12.04, per the IBM software prereqs for product page.
    At current date the most recent fixpack for V10.1 is Fixpack-3.
    Additionally, as "n_i" already pointed out in a different pos, you must first resolve the most obvious error in the log file, db2setup did not find the 'rpm' tool.
    This is a prereq.

    db2setup FP3 on ubuntu 12.4 fails also


    I have DB2_ESE_10_Linux_x86-64.tar.g ( 10.1 original) ~ 1.2G size

    Also I have : v10.1fp3_linuxx64_server.tar.gz (PF3 ) ~ 770 G size

    As per the advice: since I fail installing the original 10.1 (via db2setup) on ubuntu 12.4 ,I try db2setup from the FP3 ( there is no preinstalled DB2) but also fail in a similar way

    BTW: Is there a FP3 unified with the original 10.1 ? because maybe the 770G is not enough as a first installation ? where to get it from ?

    Below is the error I get from db2setup from FP3 . This is similar to what i got from installing 10.1 which hints that missing higher PF is not the reason I failed installing original 10.1 .
    Note the db2prereqcheck for FP3 (as well as 10.1) finishes with no error .

    Did you verify that you that the rpm package is correctly installed (before you install db2) ?

    Get the FP003 or FP002 "server fixpack" for v10.1 from IBM fix central website. The server fixpack is installable without needing the base version to be installed first.

    db2setup on Ubuntu

    installing the rpm package solved the problem. rpm is not used by Ubunut

    but by RHEL . DB2 probably fits RHEL and needs it .

    Thx anyhow
