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... http://paraafuera.blogspot.com/2008/08/instalando-informix.html (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 http://www.java.com/en/download/help/linux_install.xml "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.
