I’ve been installing Sybase 15.0.2 on several systems lately, both Core 2 Duo’s and quad Xeon’s and have been impressed with the ‘normalcy’ of the installations. With the one exception that they have all has a ‘segmentation’ failure with the backup server during the initial ‘startup’ script this is due to the omission of a shell variable LD_POINTER_GUARD=0 from the standard installation script. Once you add this element in the SYBASE.sh and source it, the backup server will start normally.
