Installation on SuSE Linux 8.1

Hi there!
I have downloaded the idea-3.0.2v2.bin from the Home Page and have tried several times to install it on my fresh Linux SuSE 8.1 System.
But the only thing i get are a lot of error messages.
They say like it does not find some linux libraries. But these libraries exist!
Finally the script stops and no Installation Wizard is launched!
What am i doing wrong, or what is the problem???

Can anybody help me??

Thanks a lot
Robert

There was a bug report about this.
It's reported to have been fixed in Build 693, but obviously it isn't...

Here is a workaround: open the installer file with a text editor (even better: a hex editor), look for the following piece of code:

if `cat /etc/redhat-release
then
if
then
case `uname -r` in
2.[456]*)
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL
;;
esac
fi
fi

uncomment these two lines:

  1. LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5

  2. export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL


the tricky thing is that you MUST NOT change the size of the file, i.e. you have to replace a blank at the beginning line with a #.
Better keep a backup copy of the file...
