    Red face Solution found

    The solution was obvious. I needed the bc command to make it work.

    Answer and problem

    bc is a linux command (I think it is an interpreter for a mathematic language but I am not sure) that the installer uses and in my distribution was not installed by default. If you have SP2 this "problem" is solved.

    Now I'm having more problems hehehe, the installer hangs launching the installation assistant. I looked at the log and the end of it is the following...

    Verification passed for /root/istemp20268144192358/_bundledJRE_ using the JVM f
    le /root/istemp20268144192358/_bundledJRE_/jvm.

    I think the problem is in the bolded text but I am not sure and if it is the case I don't know how to solve the problem.
    I would appreciate a lot help in this problem. Thanks in advance

    Question BC doesn't solves the issue

    I am also stuck with the same issue and my installer just hangs. And the log shows
    >> Install, com.ibm.wizard.platform.linux.LinuxRegistryServiceImpl, dbg.registry, reading VPD from /root/vpd.properties

    The vpd.properties doesn't exist on this path.

    When the same installer is executed on different RHEL 6 box..it just work perfect.

    The BC is already installed on both the boxes.

    Can someone please help...
