How to install INFORMIX (IDS) 11.50 in CENTOS 5.4


If not too lat, give a shot on this...

once the .tar is uncompressed to a folder, get on it and run

./ids_install (-gui/-console) -javahome .jvm.bin

you'll have to choose between gui or console depending on your needs and likes, i've done it with the console and is quite straight (with the help of a blog as guide :D )

The .jvm.bin is a java machine packet with IDS just in case, i've read it on the below mentioned blog... (spanish)

    Getting ERROR: The wizard cannot continue because of the following error: could not load wizard specified in /wizard.inf (104)

    Solution: Uninstall everything related with java and jre. Then, download the lastest version of jre for linux x86 or x64, rpm.bin one. And follow these instructions "To install the Linux RPM (self-extracting) file".

    Make a user and group informix (as root), then uncompress the (informix package).tar in /opt/informix that you have created. And tun ./ids_install, and GUI will work ok.

    Hope it helps.

      I'm not sure it quite fits in the Q&A mould as written, but good advice. Thanks.
