IBM Installation Manager – /lib/ bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

December 12th, 2012  | Tags: , , ,

Recently, I’ve faced the following problem when I’ve tried to install the IBM Installation Manager on RedHat 64 bits.

bash: ./install: /lib/ bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

It happened when I tried to run the ./install command inside the Installation Manager directory.
Looking at the internet, I’ve found this: . Basically, the IBM Installation Manager is a 32bits program and could not be performed on a 64bits Operating System. However there is a workaround that worked perfect for me.
As root, type the following commands:

[root@localhost]# yum install gtk2.i686
[root@localhost]# yum install libXtst.i686

After that hopefully you can run the ./install command successfully.
If you need more details, please take a look at the link above.
I hope this post be useful for anyone else. See you gu

    Every customer on Amazon has registered; you cant buy without first registering.
    Even though you might be the seller of the goods, and
    shipping them to the customer, the customer mindshare is Amazons.
