I need assistance installing IBM DB2 drivers onto Ubuntu.
I got node.js installed on Ubuntu 14.04 using this command:
sudo apt-get install nodejs nodejs-legacy npm
Then, unnecessarily, I added ODBC support with this command:
sudo apt-get install git unixodbc unixodbc-dev ; git clone git://github.com/wankdanker/node-odbc.git ; cd node-odbc ; node-gyp configure build ; npm install odbc
After this, I discovered there was a npm for getting IBM DB2 accessible from node.js
A prerequisite, though, is that I must first download and install the IBM DB2 driver onto Ubuntu.
From the IBM website, I downloaded a file named:
I found these instructions for installing the IBM DB2 driver.
The instructions state:
On Linux and UNIX operating systems, IBM Data Server Driver Package is installed by running the installDSDriver command.
However, the v9.5fp10_linuxx64_dsdriver.tar.gz file-archive doesn't contain any command called installDSDriver and Ubuntu doesn't natively know this command.
Where and how can I execute this installDSDriver command?
