Here's how to install Sybase ASE:
kernel.shmmax=268435456(you can check and/or set that with sysctl)
Installing on newer distributions (openSuse 11, RHEL 5, Ubuntu 8.x, ...)
On newer Linux versions such as openSuse 10.2 or higher, RedHat EL 5, etc., the setup/installer will fail to create and start the server. In this case, register an account on https://login.sybase.com/login/createAccount.do, proceed to Support & Downloads -> EBFs/Maintenance and search for 15682 in the EBF # field.
Download the patch and run the setup (after having stopped previously running ASE servers).
We have presently installed ASE 15.0.2/EBF15682 successfully on RedHat EnterpriseLinux 5.1 and openSuse 11.
Platform specific notes:
RedHat EL 5
yum install xorg-x11-deprecated-libs
yum install compat-libstdc++-33
(or search RHN for libstdc++5)
