Solved on HP-UX

Hi Members,

I couldn't find a TA for HP-UX. Hence posting it here.

This is the error when I invoke Bash shell in HP-UX 11.2.

"/usr/lib/hpux32/ Unable to find library ''  "

I tried searching for the library and couldn't find it. Searching in the net took me to "gettext" and "libiconv" tools. Both are installed and this hasn' solved the problem.

I also modified SHLIB_PATH to include /usr/lib/hpux32. This did not work as the Shared Library is not present.

Any pointers willbe highly appreciated.

    Assisted Solution

    The shared object provided wide-character translation. This functionality now resides in libc on Solaris systems.

    HP-UX does not have a shared object. Some of the message-handling functions as identified are not present on HP-UX by default.

    Most of the wide-character functionality is present in on HP-UX systems. You can alse get the same functionality as the functions on Solaris systems from the GNU gettext package.

    The GNU bash need to have gettext libgcc libiconv packages installed, you can downlaod them (binary package) including bash from:

    and a lot more freeware for HP-UX from the same site.
