PureMessage for UNIX is compatible with 64-bit Linux Operating systems.

However, you must perform additional steps to ensure that the installation runs successfully.

When installing on a fresh 64-bit Linux OS you may get the following error:

./install_script.sh: /opt/pmx6/bin/pmx-wfetch: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

What to do

Installing PureMessage for UNIX on a supported 64-bit Linux distribution

Install the required package:

On a RPM based distribution (CentOS/RedHat)
yum -y install glibc.i686

On a DEB based distribution (Debian/Ubuntu):
apt-get update
apt-get install ia32-libs

Ensure that is not specified anywhere in the /etc/hosts file. Delete any instance of this IP address. Ubuntu adds this setting by default during installation, and it inhibits communication between PureMessage and its database (PostgreSQL).

: Take care not to delete any instance of (localhost).

Once these steps are complete, follow the instructions in the PureMessage for UNIX Installation Guide.
