How to Resolve "32 bit ncurses library is not installed" Message For Autosys Installation on Oracle Big Data Appliance v4.2.0 (Doc ID 2041950.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 10, 2015

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.2.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

The library required for Autosys installation is missing on the BDA.  For example, the following is seen:

[root@<bda1node1> Linux]# ./setup
32 bit ncurses library is not installed.
Reason: On a 64 bit system the 32 bit library libncurses is necessary.
Action: \Please install the ncurses 32 bit package with version >= 5.

When checking the BDA cluster from node 1 the following is found for example on cluster with Mammoth 4.2.0 the following 64-bit libraries exist:

[root@<bda1node1 ~]# rpm -qa | grep ncurses

ncurses-libs-5.7-3.20090208.el6.x86_64

ncurses-base-5.7-3.20090208.el6.x86_64

ncurses-devel-5.7-3.20090208.el6.x86_64

ncurses-5.7-3.20090208.el6.x86_64

 

Where can the 32-bit version be found?
