Installing free Sybase 15.0.3 ASE on CentOS Linux 5.3


Hi,

I want to install Sybase ASE 15.0.3 on CentOS Linux 5.3. The installation guide says.

The “sybase” user must have permission privileges from the root of the disk partition or operating system directory down
to the specific physical device or operating system file.

I am not good with linux. I created sybase user. But how do I give above permissions to sybase user.

Also do I need to get license for free evaluation copy of Sybase ASE 15.0.3?

That means that the sybase user must have read/write/execute permissions to the location where you're installing sybase. So if you're installing it to (for example), /software/sybase, the ownership of /software/sybase needs to be the user "sybase", and it'd be a good idea too, to change the group, too. Read the man page for the chown command, and the chmod command. Assuming the sybase user is in primary group "users", you'd just type in:
Code:
chown sybase:users /software/sybase
then do an "ls -l", to see the permissions on that directory. Same things apply if you're installing to an entire disk. If it's mounted as /disk1, the chown/chmod commands apply to the mount point.

Go look on the Sybase page and see.
