Now, we come to the main PeopleTools install. This should create the File sytem. Download and extract the CDs to your virtual system. Linux has an unzip command that will extract the CDs if you need it.
When you are finished, you should have a directory for each of the 7 disks. Go ahead and open a terminal and change directories into the first disk. There you should see a setup.exe and a setup.linux.
Later we will use wine to run the Windows version (wine setup.exe), but now we need the Linux option. First, you need to make sure that the file is executable. So, run the command:
chmod +x setup.linux
Then, run the program
Give it some time and you should see the first page of the installation wizard.
The next step is to enter the license code. You can use the codes from here. (One little trick that helped me read the font on the page with is to use the zoom feature. On Firefox and IE7 you can press Ctrl plus (+) to zoom in.)
Next, choose unicode or non-unicode. I plan to use only English, and so, I chose non-unicode.
Next, choose all of the options to install. The plan is to install everything into the same instance.
Next, choose the home directory that you created earlier.
Next, choose whether or not to install the ERP connectors. I chose no just because I didn’t think I would use them.
Next, choose the directory that you installed Tuxedo into. For me, this was /home/pshr/bea/tuxedo91.
Next, accept the default for the Environment Management.
Next, select the default as far as what features to install. You want both PeopleTools and the System Database.
Now, just review the options.
Then, the installer will begin its work.
If all goes well, you should get a success screen after a while. It took my laptop about 3 hours.
When you are done, you will need to add the psconfig.sh to profile. You can do so with:
ln -s /home/pshr/pshome/psconfig.sh /etc/profile.d/psconfig.sh
You also need to edit the file:
Make sure that you change the PS_HOSTTYPE from unknown to redhat-x-ia32.
