HELIOS UB2 on Red Hat 6 64-bit

Starting with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL6) Red Hat does no longer include 32-bit C++ libraries in the default installation of the 64-bit edition. These libraries are required by the HELIOS services. The 32-bit edition of RHEL6 is not affected.

Before HELIOS services can be installed or used, the 32-bit C++ libraries must be installed on the operating system. There are two ways to do so:

Graphical installation from the RHEL6 CDs/DVDs:
Open the “Add/Remove Software” utility program. To make the 32-bit packages visible, open the “Filters” menu and uncheck “Only native packages”. Now find and install the i686 version of the packages “The GNU libc libraries” (glibc) and “GNU Standard C++ Library” (libstdc++).

Online installation using “yum”:
If you have access to Red Hat Network (RHN), you can use the “yum” utility to install the required libraries:
# yum install glibc.i686 libstdc++.i686
