Error: bash ./install: No such file or directory when installing Installation Manager on Ubuntu 64 10.04 LTS (64-bit)

Technote (troubleshooting)


You start the installation of IBM Installation Manager on Ubuntu 64 10.04 LTS (64-bit). You receive the error:
bash ./install: No such file or directory.


You open a shell window and change to the directory that contains the Installation Manager installation files. You run the ./install command and receive the error:

bash ./install: No such file or directory


Installation Manger is a 32-bit application and requires 32-bit versions of operating system libraries. These libraries are not installed on Ubuntu 64 10.04 LTS (64-bit) by default.

Resolving the problem

To work around this issue:

1. In the same shell window, run the command:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
2. Enter your user account password
3. Answer Y to “Do you want to continue?”

The correct libraries are installed.  

For computers that do not have access to the Internet, take the following steps:

1. Go to a different Ubuntu computer that does have access to the Internet.

2. Run the command: sudo apt-get install –d ia32-libs.
This command downloads packages to /var/cache/apt/archives but does not install the packages.

3. Copy the following files to a temporary directory on the Ubuntu computer where you are installing Installation Manager:

4. Install all of the packages by using the dpkg -1 command and listing all of the file names:
/tmp$ sudo  dpkg -i ia32-libs_2.7ubuntu25_amd64.deb  lib32gcc1_1%3a4.4.3-4ubuntu5_amd64.deb libc6-i386_2.11.1-0ubuntu7_amd64.deb
lib32z1_1%3a1.2.3.3.dfsg-15ubuntu1_amd64.deb  lib32stdc++6_4.4.3-4ubuntu5_amd64.deb lib32asound2_1.0.22-0ubuntu7_amd64.deb 
lib32ncurses5_5.7+20090803-2ubuntu3_amd64.deb lib32v4l-0_0.6.4-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb lib32bz2-1.0_1.0.5-4_amd64.deb
