Installing MicroStrategy on Ubuntu Linux

MicroStrategy is not yet supported or certified to be installed on Ubuntu Linux. But there is way to achieve it.

/etc/sysctl.conf

fs.file-max = 65535
kernel.shmall = 2097152
kernel.shmmax = 2147483648
kernel.shmmni = 4096
kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 128
net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 1024 65000
net.core.rmem_default = 1048576
net.core.rmem_max = 1048576
net.core.wmem_default = 262144
net.core.wmem_max = 262144

….and installed a lot of supporting packages :

# apt-get install gcc make binutils lesstif2 libc6 libc6-dev rpm libmotif3 libaio libstdc++5 gawk alien libg++2.8.1.3-glibc2.2 ksh gcc-3.3 g++-3.3 libstdc++5

…and tricked the installer into thinking it was a redhat environment :

echo "Red Hat Linux release 4" > /etc/redhat-release

But, if you want to install in a free linux version, you can try Fedora, CentOS or OpenSuse.
