Installing ATG on Fedora Core

Trying to install ATG on the Linux platform turned out to be not completely hickup-free. The default installer died with the following message:

$ ./ATG2007.1.bin
Preparing to install...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
awk: error while loading shared libraries: libdl.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
dirname: error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
/bin/ls: error while loading shared libraries: librt.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
basename: error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
dirname: error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
basename: error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Fortunately, the fix was easy after I found out what went wrong: incorrect assumption about kernel version. To make it work, this “hack” helped:

$ mv ATG2007.1.bin ATG2007.1.bin.orig
$ cat ATG2007.1.bin.orig | sed "s/export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/#xport LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/" >ATG2007-1.bin

None of this of course happens on Windows – oh, yes – the joys of not swimming with the crowd :-). You will encounter issues otherwise unknown – but also learn something in the process.
