ETL processing software install

I am trying to install the Etl processing software on a RedHat 5.5 server with Oracle 11.2 installed. I navigate to the directory where the install.sh is and try running it but I get an error everytime:
Unable to load LicenseManager, because some dependent libraries are missing, such as OpenGL or XWindows. For information about required OS patches of dependent libries, refer to teh Minimum Requirements session in the Supported Platforms document at http://service.sap.com/.

I am doing this for a user who sold the Sabrix report software to a client so I don't have access to 'service.sap.com' to check that document. I have tried ldd LicenseManager and found the 2 that were not found. I exported the library path to LD_LIBRARY_PATH  and it still gives me the same error message.
I have also found the activation key and set the env for the BOE_REGISTRYHOME and entered the key in hopes that that was part of the problem, but still the same error message.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

There is no idconfig in my sbin. and there's no manual for it either, I checked that first.

On a side note, I finally got connected with someone who could give me access to the SAP support page. I have now found out that the version of the SAP BusinessObjects Data Service 3.2 that I was given is not compatible with my version of RedHat (5.5). Now I'm just waiting for the client to get back with me and get me the newest version (4.0) which is compatible with my version of RedHat.

Thanks for all the help, sorry about the trouble.

You have to install the dependencies first.  If you don't have those packages available somewhere, then you will have to download each one of those online on some site like
http://rpm.pbone.net/

I have the dependencies, they were already there just the path had not been set. I exported the path and when I use the 'ldd' command to check they all appear with no 'not found'.

Rather than rely on LD_LIBRARY_PATH , try putting the target directories in /etc/ld.so.conf. That way, the libraries are available regardless of what any process chooses to do with its environment

Be sure to run ldconfig after editing ld.so.conf

Do you mean run ifconfig? id config doesn't seem to be a command.

NO I do mean ldconfig. It should be in root's PATH, otherwise it should be accessible as /sbin/ldconfig. If your distribution came with man pages, you should be able to type man ldconfig and learn more about what it does

For anyone else running into this problem make sure to have them check that the version of the Data Services is compatible with their version of RedHat or whatever OS they're using.
Again Thank you for all the help!
