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-, java-1.4.2-ibm-devel- 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/ 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.

Dear Him,

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 ...
