SuSE 9.2 and IBM DB2 V.8.1

Where can help me???????????????

I have the following problem:

I have installed SuSE V.9.2 Pro out of the Box with full KDE, C-Compiler,
Kernel Support and Java (incl. SDK).

Now i will install DB2 ESE. When i say "./db2setup" now i become the
folllowing error message.

SV18:~ # cd /tmp/00*
SV18:/tmp/009_ESE_LNX_32_NLV # ./db2setup
DBI1190I db2setup is preparing the DB2 Setup wizard which will
guide you through the program setup process. Please

/tmp/009_ESE_LNX_32_NLV/db2/linux/install/db2jinst: line 142: 3504 Segmentation fault $JAVA_PATH/$JAVA_INTERPRETER $JAVA_OPTIONS -cp $JAVA_CLASSPATH $DB2SetupRun "$@" 2>/tmp/db2setup.err.running

In my experiences with DB2 (and other IBM products like Websphere Studio, Lotus Domino), I have had to set the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL enviromental variable because there seems to be a problem with the install shield that comes with these products. I'm running on Suse 9.0 with a 2.4 .x kernel with DB2 v8.1 and WS Studio 5.1.

You could try
$ export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.21
followed by
$ ./db2setup
. There are however some implications of doing so (explanations of which I did not manage to fully understand).

In most cases this only need to be set during installation, except in some cases your DB2 control center might give you the same problem.

Your other alternative is to install the latest IBM JRE from and ensure that the IBM JRE directory is first in your path. The version of the IBM JRE shipped with the DB2 8.1 install image is a little older and more brittle, which is why you need to set LD_ASSUME_KERNEL to use it.
