Unanswered: Installation of DB2 8.1 UDB Express fails on SuSE 8.2
could please anybody help me out. When I try ./db2setup nothing shows up. I checked the logs and here they are.
lump:/tmp # tail -f db2*
==> db2setup.err.running <==
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: -1

I tried various things. Looks like IBM Java 1.3.1 is the same as it came with. I actually editted db2jinst script to be sure it is using it. It is in db2/install/linux/bin I believe. I got the same exception as above. Also I tried Sun Java 1.4.2, it just hung and nothing came back. I tried it with java that came with and set LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 as it solved issue with Oracle installer for me.
I'm at the point where I'll probably give up. I have found a few posts from IBM from Toronto and they were saying in May that certification for SuSE 8.2 should take few weeks. (HINT!!!)
So, I downloaded DB2 8.1 not the Express Edition and I'll give it try hopefully today.
Oh, this is as far as I got:
-bash: db2setup: command not found
lump:~/DB2 # ./db2setup
