These installation notes are based on a single-partition installation using the 2.4.21–20 kernel (September 20, 2004).
The pdksh package required for a multiple-partition environment setup is installed by default on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.
RHEL 3 has backported the asynchronous I/O kernel capabilities of the 2.6 kernel into their 2.4 kernel, but you will need to download and install the libaio RPM package to take advantage of this.
To check for the pdksh or libaio RPM packages, run the commands:
rpm -qi pdksh rpm -qi libaio
up2date pdksh up2date libaio
No Java package is installed by default, so there are no conflicts with the Java 2 SDK from IBM that DB2 UDB installs.
The installation on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 completed successfully, with no problems getting the GUI tools or installer working, and no errors during the install. This smooth installation isn't surprising, given that RHEL 3 is an officially supported platform for Version 8.2
