Operating System Prerequisite Packages

 

This section lists the operating system packages that are required to install Signalware on a Linux platform. For more details about operating system requirements, see the Signalware SP Release 9 Service Pack 6 Linux Installation Manual.

Note

If you modify any kernel module, you need to execute the swcommission(1s) script again as well as configure Signalware.

To configure Signalware:

  • Configure the computing element (configurePlatform(1s))

  • Commission the drivers (swcommission(1s))

  • Configure the nodes (configureNodes(1s))

  • Perform provisioning

64-Bit x86_64 Red Hat Installations

64-Bit x86_64 Red Hat Installations

On 64-bit Red Hat installations, both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Red Hat glibc, glibcdevel, libstdc++, and libgcc package RPMs must be installed.

To verify that the system contains both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of these GCC compiler tools packages, type:

rpm -q --queryformat “%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-%{arch}\n” glibc glibc-devel libstdc++ libgcc

This rpm command must return a report as follows where xxx is the version number:

  • glibc-xxx-x86_64

  • glibc-xxx-i686

  • glibc-devel-xxx-x86_64

  • glibc-devel-xxx-i386

  • glibc-devel-xxx-i686 (RHEL 6 only)

  • libstdc++-xxx-x86_64

  • ibstdc++-xxx-i386

  • libstdc++-xxx-i686 (RHEL 6 only)

  • libgcc-xxx-x86_64

  • libgcc-xxx-i386

  • libgcc-xxx-i686 (RHEL 6 only)

Only the 64-bit version of libstdc++-devel needs to be installed. To verify that the system contains the 64-bit version of the libstdc++-devel package, type:

rpm -q --queryformat “%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-%{arch}\n” libstdc++-devel

This must return a report as follows where xxx is the version number:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Release 7.2 and Above
