INFORMIX SERVER / 5725A3900 / E10 -
Installer fails with below error, ======================================= Prerequisite Verification Check ------------------------------- One or more prerequisite system libraries are not installed on your computer. Install libncurses.so.5 and then restart the IBM Informix installation program. The installation cannot succeed until the minimum requirements are met. For more information about the prerequisites, see your Installation Guide or check with your System Administrator. PRESS TO ACCEPT THE FOLLOWING (OK): ======================================= Installer require libncurses.5, however libncurses.6 is the version installed on RHEL 8. Installer needs to be independant of libncurses.5
Create softlink from libncurses.so.5 to libncurses.so.6.1 (the supplied lib on RHEL 8). Also, create softlink for libtinfo (/usr/lib64/libtinfo.so.5 -> libtinfo.so.6.1) for dbaccess to work.
not known / see Local fix
The installer is reporting a missing libncurses.5 which is required for full product operation (crtcmap onbar_d oninit onmode onsmsync ontape). You need to install libncurses.5 even if libncurses.6 is present.
