Unable to bring up SAP GUI for Java Environment

New to linux, install SAP NetWeaver 2004s on RHEL 5.3 under Linux.

Install jdk v1.4.2 (java-1.4.2-ibm-1.4.2.10-1jpp.2.el4.x86_64.rpm, java-1.4.2-ibm-devel-1.4.2.10-1jpp.2.el4.x86_64.rpm) and execute java -jar PlatinGUI-Linux-700.jar without any problems.

However, when trying to bring up the SAP GUI for Java environment, I get the fatal error as belows:

Attempt to load the shared library /opt/SAPClients/SAPGUI7.00/bin/libjOlatin.so failed.

The library file exists, so either the program or the library don't has privileges to access the library

or the library is not loadable by the shared object loader.

/opt/SAPClients/SAPGUI7.00/bin

Any ideas to the above

Thanks.

Dear Him,

ftp://ftp.sap.com/pub/sapgui/java/

fetch it from there. But please note, the Linux version is only available for i386, so you would need a 32bit java as well .... and of course the 32-bit compatibility libs ...

Thanks,

Hannes
