Db2 FixPack Installation error

Dear SDNites,

I have searched on the SDN community for the error and then posting it for your help

I am facing an issue while applying the db2_fixpack on one of our SAP databases

We are on Db29.7.0,Suse Linux-10 and applying FP1

I am getting the following error afterrunning the command ./installFixPack -b <Installation directory>

(I have completely stopped the databse and I am as root while executing the command..)

ERROR: File db2iver not found.

Exiting...

ERROR: The installFixPack command detected some DB2 libraries are still loaded
in memory and some applications might still be running in the current
installation copy.  All applications must be stopped. See the fix pack readme
for pre-installation instructions, and re-run the installFixPack command.
Alternatively, to override automatic checking, you can re-issue the
installFixPack command with the '-f db2lib' parameter. Note: If you re-issue
the installFixPack command with the '-f db2lib' parameter, after the DB2
instances are updated, some applications might not work properly and might need
to be restarted to function properly against the updated DB2 instance.

Preparing the system :.......Failure

DB2 Fix Pack Update log file finished at:  Thu Oct  7 15:24:29 2010 CST

When try to start or stop the database, it says

db2bs1> db2start
db2start: error while loading shared libraries: libdb2e.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Pls help me fix the issue as I am not able to start the system

Thanks in advance

Regards

Venu

    I was able to complete the fix pack installation by force "./installFixPack -b <target directory> -f db2lib"
