Installing Zend Studio on Linux

30 November -0001

Recently while trying to install Zend Studio 5 on my Linux system I got the following error message:

error while loading shared libraries:

After searching around on the net for a while I figured out a solution. You have to alter the install script (ZendStudio-5_0_0.bin) as follows:

[root@localhost Zend]# tar -xvzf ZendStudio-5_0_0.tar.gz 
[root@localhost Zend]# cp ZendStudio-5_0_0.bin ZendStudio.bin
[root@localhost Zend]# cat ZendStudio.bin | sed "s/export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/#xport LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/" > ZendStudio-5_0_0.bin
[root@localhost Zend]# ./ZendStudio-5_0_0.bin

This fires up the installer without error. Note that to run the program I have to do it from the correct install directory like so:

[justin@localhost ~]$ cd /usr/local/Zend/ZendStudioClient-5.0.0/bin/
[justin@localhost bin]$ ./
