    Re: DB2 UDB install on which Linux ?

    I suggest you go for the latest version, V8.1.4, if you have the choice .. Install Personal Edition if you do not want remote connectivity ... Install ESE if you want remote connectivity but have to reinstall every 90 days ...

    More resources :

    www.ibm.com/db2/linux
    and
    you will find links under www.db2click.com under the head 'db2 for linux)

    Cheers

    Sathyaram,

    Thanks for the info. Very useful.

    Did anyone manage to install DB2V 8.1.4 on Redhat 9 or Fedora distribution ?

    Thanks,

    Yes, I have done it. But you may not be able to use mutliple processors on your system. Search this forum for how to do workarounds for RH9 to make it work. But even if it does work, IBM will not support it.

    Thanks! This is for personal learning use only. I do not care about the multi processor and ibm support.
