Just a couple of pointers if you ever need to install CC/CQ 7.1.2.02 on ubuntu 10.04.
First and foremost, their instructions for installing CC on a 64 bit system are missing a vital step. They tell you to install the 32 bit compat libraries (fair enough) and libstdc++5 amongst other things. Well, libstdc++5 is no longer available with 10.04 so they messed up there (and their binaries are built against it). Just follow the instructions at http://www.hackourlife.com/ubuntu-10-04-lucid-lynx-libstdc-so-5/ for how to get around the problem. Easy enough really.
Now, CQ. Set up your repositories from the IBM Installation manager with the patch as well but there are a few issues you've got to be aware of. Firstly, the install fails because it cant install gsk7bas-7.0-4.11.i386.rpm. Well, its a debian system so that would be correct.
Anyway, it does come with rpm but you have got to make sure you do a ...
sudo rpm rebuilddb
first. That still won't get you out of the woods as installing an rpm on ubuntu/debian requires the use of --force-debian
mv rpm rpm.real
cat > rpm << EOF
# Wrapper script to force RPM installs on Debian based systems
/usr/bin/rpm.real --force-debian $*
chmod 755 rpm
and then try the install again.
Well, it seems to work, but I cant tell until I have a license server :)
