Description helge.delfs 2011-04-06 12:20:00 UTC
RPM based installation with setup fails on default 64-bit Ubuntu installation due to missing libraries "ia32-libs" in Java setup


Java comes with setup is a 32-bit architecture

./setup: 486: usr/java/jre1.6.0_22/bin/unpack200: not found
ERROR: Failed to unpack JAR file:


Installation failed. Please refer to the Troubleshooting Section of
the Installation Instructions on the download page.

On an 64 bit system we should require and use an installed JRE/JDK for the Java GUI installation. Grepping for x86_64 in uname -a might help to find out what a CPU architecture is used.
I don't see that as a P2 issue as in a normal case a debian based linux user will use the related deb files for installation.

Okay, on 64 Bit Linux systems we need a preinstalled JRE 1.4, 1.5 or 1.6.
There are two possibilities to check the architecture:
1. uname -m  displays the kernel name.
2. file /usr/bin/file   is the check of a binary file.

I think, I prefer solution 2. Seems to be more robust, in the case, that the kernel name changes.

Surely important for 3.4

OF: Installation works now.
Comment 7 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2012-06-13 12:31:48 UTC
getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity".
For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.
