View Full Version : [ubuntu] 10.10 and db2

January 13th, 2011, 08:52 PM
Please excuse me if this has already been posted, noted, etc. I did do a search but could not find an answer to my question.

I just completed a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop 64bit. Everything was pretty much left to defaults.
When completed I enabled the partner repositories. Then ran apt-get update and apt-get upgrade.
Everything ran perfectly.

When I attempted to install db2exc it failed saying it was an unknown package.
I ran apt-cache search db2, but nothing came up.

Was IBM DB2 Express-C package moved to a different repository or was it removed completely? Maybe a rename?

I know I'm not on the up and up about this, but after doing a google search I thought I'd see something.

To make sure I haven't lost my mind entirely, I installed Lucid on a test box, fresh installation, and was fully able to do the installation of db2exc.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

According to below link, that program is only available for Lucid.

Ok, thank you.

But does anyone know/think that IBM will have or release Express-C for future releases of Ubuntu, or will they want users to compile it from their tar.gz file each time?

The db2exc for lucid can be installed in Maverick fine, but you have to point it to that repo.
