Unhappy IBM HTTP Server 6.0 installation problem on Fedora Core 4.0

Hi All,

I am newbie to linux but knows few commands and a Windows NetAdmin and Java Programer as well. I have installed the Fedora Core 4.0 on a simple PC with 512 MB RAM and a HP monitor.

I want to install IBM HTTP Server 6.0 on it.I have downloaded the .tar file "ihs.6020.linux.ia32.tar" from ibm site and decompress it with "tar -xvf ihs.6020.linux.ia32.tar" command. As per the installation guide it has created a folder named IHS on the same dir. After that when i tried to run the scrip file with command "./install" it shows me following error:

[root@Apache IHS]# ./install
InstallShield Wizard

Initializing InstallShield Wizard...

Searching for Java(tm) Virtual Machine...
Running InstallShield Wizard...
The installer is unable to run in graphical mode. Try running the installer with the -console or -silent flag.

now i tried with silent option as well:

[root@Apache IHS]# ./install -options "responsefile.txt" -silent [root@Apache IHS]#

But it ends with no warning, no message. All the options have been properly configued in responsefile.txt and in the specified dir(/opt/IBMHTS) it creates only two file one is "gskitInstall.log" and one is "ihsv6_install.log" and in the ihsv6_install.log file it shows a java exception :

(Dec 8, 2005 6:39:22 PM), install, com.installshield.wizard.StandardWizardListener, dbg, java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_04/jre/lib/i386/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_04/jre/lib/i386/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
at java.lang.ClassLoader$NativeLibrary.load(Native Method)
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary0(
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary(

The JDK is properly installed and path is set properly as i have checked it already with a sample program.

Any help would be appriciated heartly. Thanks in advanced guys .

Try this
$./make install

it should work if you have the source.
Tell me what how it's going on with this.

Unlikely, IBM usually don't distribute in source.

It looks like he's missing some parts of the X-Libraries.

Hi All,

Thanks to both of you for your reply. Well i guess Think is rite and IBM dont distribute in source. There is no configure file. A very strange thing has came and that is, I got the same conf machine with me. The same hardware, fedora 4.0 everything is same. the only thing is is has a MySQL server installed on it and if I run that installer on it, it works fine.

I have investigated this issue on my level n i found that in the machine i m trying to install the IBM HTTP server isnt have a Java Run Time environment. So i have installed the jdk 1.4 on it but still that doesnt work.

I tried to set the classpath with :

but it doesnt work as well . now what else i have done is...i copied the /usr/bin/java file from there and then try to run the java commmand from the console and its displaying that:

Error: could not find
Error: could not find Java 2 Runtime Enviroment

Help me. Thanks in advance...know you guys must be busy with Christmas stuff....
