The Linux Runtime Environment (LRE) provides an environment for seamless execution of Intel® Itanium® Linux applications on Itanium HP-UX without rebuild. The packages listed below provide tools and components necessary for installing and facilitating the LRE on HP-UX. These tools and components include:
  • LRE dynamic loader and C library
  • Posix compliant thread library
  • Redhat Package Manager (rpm) tools
  • ABI scanner

Note: At initial release, the LRE will not support:

  • Linux 32-bit (x86) applications
  • Applications that are bound to archive libraries through which system calls are invoked
  • Kernel intrusive applications
  • Applications that directly access persistent system files, directly manipulate hardware, or use Linux specific kernel Application Program Interfaces (APIs)

Packages Description
LRE version 0.2 for HP-UX 11i v1.6 & 11i v2 Linux Runtime Environment (LRE) on HP-UX Itanium enables users to execute Intel Itanium Linux applications on HP-UX. The LRE package is available in two formats, HP-UX SD depot format and Redhat Package Manager (rpm) format. The package contains binaries that create the LRE on HP-UX and related documentation. Download and install RPM tools for HP-UX (see below) before you attempt to install LRE rpm package.

pthread library for LRE This is the Posix compliant thread library for LRE. This library allows users to run multi-threaded Linux applications over LRE on HP-UX. It is available in SD depot format as well as rpm format. This library is HP Proprietary software, read the license agreement before downloading.
RPM for HP-UX 11i v1.6 & 11i v2 This package contains Redhat Package Manager (rpm) tools for HP-UX and related documentation. These tools can be used for creating and installing source and binary rpm packages on HP-UX. Refer to the documentation provided with the LRE package for more information on how these tools can be used to install Linux rpm packages on HP-UX.

Debugger for LRE applications A minimal support debugger for LRE applications is available at www.hp.com/go/wdb.
ABI scanner ABI scanner scans a Linux binary file and reports if it uses any interfaces that are not supported on LRE. This report helps the user determine if the application will run on LRE or not. See the LRE release notes for a list of interfaces that are not supported on LRE.

Installation

  1. Select the appropriate download. You will then see a "Save as" dialog box appear on your screen.
  2. In the "Selection" field define the path where you wish to save the downloadable file and press "OK".
  3. Once the file has been saved onto your system, if it is a HP SD depot file, run swinstall as "root".
  4. swinstall -s <FILE_NAME> <PRODUCT_NAME>
    where FILE_NAME is the complete path of the saved downloadable file and PRODUCT_NAME is the name of the product to install.

    NOTE: Some browsers may save the file with a different extension such as .tar. Continue with the following instructions and use the extension of the file saved.

    For example, if the downloadable file was saved in "/tmp" and the product name is "foo" the command to install would be:

    swinstall -s /tmp/foo-1.2-11.00.depot foo
                    or
    swinstall -s /tmp/foo-1.2-11.00.tar foo
    NOTE: Refer to the man page swinstall(1M)for more information.
    If the install does not complete correctly or you have problems you can access the log file at:
    /var/adm/sw/swagent.log
  5. if the saved file is in rpm (Redhat Package Manager) format, run rpm as root. (Before this, you need to download and install the rpm depot available in the download section of  this page.)
  6. rpm -i <FILE_NAME>
    where FILE_NAME is the path of the saved downloadable file.

    For example, if the downloadable file was saved in "/tmp" and the package name is "foo.rpm" the command to install would be

    rpm -i /tmp/foo.rpm
    NOTE: Refer to the man page rpm(8) for more information or refer to the rpm web site www.rpm.org for a detailed documentation.
