Having problem installing Storage Foundation on AMD Athlon processor

Hi everyone,

I have searched all over the net for the solution for this problem and can't find one. I am running Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4 U4 on virtualbox which sits on Fedora 11. I am trying to install Storage foundation which includes Volume Manager so I can utilise vertias for managing my disks for when I install Oracle. When installing majority of the rpms install fine but when it tries to install Volume Manager, it errors. I tried to run it manually using rpm -ivh VRTSvxvm-common-4.1.00.10-GA_RHEL4.i686.rpm and it errors saying 'This package is not built for athlon processors'. I am a little confused as to why this won't install on athlon processors and was wondering if anyone has a work around for this so I can install volume manager?

My processor is an AM XP 3200+ processor with 2GB RAM, OS running are Windows 7 and Fedora 11 and and running Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4 U4 on Virtualbox 3.0

Any help is appreciated.

Many Thanks

Sunny

Hi Sunny,

I once extracted the preinstall scriptlets from the problematic rpm(s) and found the machine and processor checks which stopped my successful install. It turns out that native Athlon (in my case even Sempron) is not supported.
 
After using the "uname" modification from Technote 272412 (http://support.veritas.com/docs/272412) it worked for me.

Manuel
