Progress OpenEdge Database 10.1b install on Centos (RHEL)

por | 7 diciembre, 2011

En /etc/profile
DLC=/opt/dlc102b
JREHOME=/usr/java/jre1.5.0_22
JDKHOME=/usr/java/jdk1.5.0_22

PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/jre1.5.0_22/bin:/usr/java/jdk1.5.0_22/bin:/opt/dlc102b/bin
export PATH USER LOGNAME MAIL HOSTNAME HISTSIZE INPUTRC DLC JREHOME JDKHOME

What follows is a braindump of every thing I stumled into while getting Progress OpenEdge Database 10.1b up and running on Centos (Red Hat Enterprise Linux). Where Centos is a VMWare virtual machine (guest) with Windows XP as the host operating system.

Install Centos

I had trouble installing Centos in a VMWare guest (Windows XP being the host operating system). Solution was to download a ‘CentOS 5.0, server install’ from thoughtpolice to get Centos up and running as a VMWare virtual machine. Read about this here.

Download and install Java (JDK)

see /nix/download-and-install-of-java-jdk.html for instructions as to the installation of JDK on Centos.

Run the installer.

The installation process is pretty straight forward. I choose to install in /pro/product/101b (like Oracle’s Optimal Flexible Architecture (OFA) Convention)

Test the executables

After the install I want to test the executables, the ‘prostrct‘ command goes fine (complaining about too few arguments which is in fact right but then came the ‘pro‘ command …

prostrct runs fine
[[email protected] remivisser]# prostrct
Too few arguments. (1370)
[[email protected] remivisser]#
pro command results in an error …
[[email protected] bin]# pro
/pro/product/101b/bin/_progres: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[[email protected] bin]#

Next section contains the solution, to get ‘pro’ executable working fine.

libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3, Se Habla Español, Linux Para Todos, Gracias!

It took me quit a few hours to figure this one out, until google returned only ONE entry, in Spanish … Thanks to the directions on this forum thread I managed to get ‘pro’ working.

See complete logging below which contains the following three steps:

  1. Run pro command with missing libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 shared object error
  2. Install compat-libstdc++-296 using yum
  3. Run pro command succesfull without any errors!

    I face the same error while installing progress 9.1 on Centos VMware. I tried using your steps.

    When i do step 2 , i get following error message:
    “yum -y install compat-libstdc++-296
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: update
    Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: update”

    Please Help. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the post. I was getting an off shoot of the same error and doing the full yum install didn’t get it fixed. I eventually did a “yum install compat-lib*” and that got it running correctly.

    Nice thread here 🙂
    Otherwise the issue might also be related to your progress license installation.

    4GL Development System license would be required rather that OE Workgroup RDBMS to invoke pro.

    cheers
