./runInstaller: unsupported version 256 of Verneed record


Hi,

I was trying to install some product software in oracle linux x86_64 box. But when I try to run the ./runInstaller it is showing

./runInstaller: error while loading shared libraries: ./runInstaller: unsupported version 256 of Verneed record

what is the meaning of this? Please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

that looks like a product specific message, so hard to say what happened. Probably there is an incompatible or missing lib.
probably runInstaller has some options, maybe it is a shell script and you can look into it.

thanks for the reply. the runinstaller.sh file contains this.
#!/bin/sh
CUR_DIR=$(pwd)
RUNINSTALLER_DIR=`dirname $0`
cd $RUNINSTALLER_DIR
./runInstaller $*
cd $CUR_DIR


so how do I read what runInstaller file contains which is pointing by this sh file?

runInstaller should be located in the same dir (so next to runinstaller.sh). You can execute: file runInstaller to check its type.
try -h, --h, --help or -? or something similar to find out what kind of options it has. Maybe there is a documentation.

Thanks for the reply.
As you specified I ran the following command to find the installable type.

$ file runInstaller
runInstaller: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, AMD x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.4.0, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

And below is my system information.

$ uname -a
Linux abc01kkk 2.6.18-308.0.0.0.1.el5xen #1 SMP Sat Feb 25 16:26:29 EST 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

So will this installable is compatible to run in my machine?
Also can I debug, what is this installable is looking in my machine?
Please let me know.

thanks in advance.

I found this: http://lists2.linuxjournal.com/piper...ry/022860.html
you can try strace -o logfile -f runInstaller to check what happens
here is a tip, probably related: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t...8-start-0.html

Thanks. I will check that.

The installer which I am running supports OEL Linux 5.8 not Redhat linux.

My machine details:

# uname -a
Linux abc03kkk 2.6.18-308.0.0.0.1.el5xen #1 SMP Sat Feb 25 16:26:29 EST 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

# cat /etc/*release
Enterprise Linux Enterprise Linux Server release 5.8 (Carthage)
Oracle Linux Server release 5.8
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.8 (Tikanga)

So am I running in correct OS environment?

Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.8 is 100% compatible with the upstream release from Red Hat.

I was using VM not sure I can see the memory information,

One more thing

$ file runInstaller
runInstaller: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, AMD x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.4.0, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

The installer is based on AMD but my vm image is Oracle Linux 5 (Intel 64-bit, Developer). is this the problem?

thanks

no, that is not relevant I think. Try to check the real memory.
