Step By Step Virtual PS Install: Tuxedo Install

This is a continuation of my virtual PeopleSoft installation.  In this step, we will discuss how to install Tuxedo.  To see the complete list of steps, click here.

Tuxedo middleware is required before the PeopleTools CDs can be installed.  You can download it with the PeopleTools CDs from or you can install from a physical CD that you have.

I have extracted the CD into /home/pshr/tuxedo with the unzip command.

71-tuxedo-extract by you.

Once, you have the CD extracted or mounted, you will need to fix a few bugs before you can begin.  We will start in the directory where you extracted the installation files:

cd tuxedo

First, update the bin file with the first fix.  You will need to run the following lines in a terminal.

cd linux/sles9/base/
cp tuxedo91_32_SLES_9_x86.bin ../Install.bak
chmod +w tuxedo91_32_SLES_9_x86.bin
cat ../Install.bak | sed "s/export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/#xport LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/" > tuxedo91_32_SLES_9_x86.bin

Next, you need to edit (with either the vi command or the gedit command) the  Change the line from (line #259):



        sh $INSTALL_BINARY LAX_VM /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_16/bin/java -f $SILENT_INSTALL_FILE > $INSTALLER_OUTPUT;

Now, you are ready to start the installation and you can run from a terminal:


For, the first option, choose option 2 — linux. And, type Y to confirm the selection.

72-tuxedo-plaform by you.

Next, change the Bea home directory (/bea) to /home/pshr/bea and also the default tuxedo directory (/home/pshr/bea/tuxedo91).  I am doing this because I plan to keep everything in my user home directory.  If you don’t do this, you need to create a directory and update the security on that directory.

73-tuxedo-directories by you.

Next, accept the default password of “password”.

74-tuxedo-password by you.

Then, enter y to continue with the installation.

75-tuxedo-continue by you.

  1. now I am getting this error. missing or invalid version of SQL library libpsora. in the stderr file we see this – dlopen in libpscompat failed for ‘’: open shared object file: No such file or directory

    This true. It doesn’t exit. I have

    Do we create the link in the $ORACLE_HOME/bin/lib folder? I did that, but it doesn’t seem to want to work.

  2. Here is a link that might help:

    I had this problem with data mover:

    Check the paths were you made the link and also check the security/owner on the link to make sure that the application can see it. Just guessing here.

  3. Thanks. I got it. It’s working now. I ran all the dms and sql scripts. Now. The big test. I have to install and setup Weblogic and get PIA up and running. Cliff

      1. Yes. It has been awhile since I did it and haven’t used it in months. But I was able to get FSCM 9 installed and Weblogic as well as everything else. I was able to get it done in Vista Ultimate32, Vista Ultimate64, and Fedora. In the past I even used VMWare and Sun VBox on this laptop, but the performance of this laptop is not great with 4gb memory running everything. The one thing that I learned was that PIA wouldn’t build because I was using a windows 2 word user id(wow! It was killing me for awhile). It all went very well after that, but I never got report distributions to work with out using FTP and never understood enough to know what I was missing. I would like to do everything over again as I have 1 old P4 desktop and another Intel Core2 Quad based PC waiting for me to finish building. I never tried building the portal and I never went back to try HCM again.

  4. This is great! I have it installed on my Dell XPS M1530. Everything is working. I installed FSCM9 and it is good to go. But I have to say that I didn’t do Cobol yet! I had installed HCM and started running into PeopleCode issues whenever I tried to setup security. So I created another machine for FSCM9 and the whole process went so well, I am going to create another for HCM and do it again. Great! Great! Thank You so Much! Cliff Moore
