Re: file is not working

You should read the prerequisites section of you install, you are probably missing a bunch of required x libraries.  Page 5 of the link below:

You should also note that CentOS is not a SAS supported Linux flavor, it will still work though.

Re: file is not working

Yes, CentOS is basically binary compliant with RHEL, however, that doesn't make it RHEL.  The officially supported Linux OS for 9.3 are SuSE SLES 10/11, RHEL 5/6, and Oracle Linux 5.5/6 (Which is also basically RHEL).  You can view that list here: SAS Supported Operating Systems

As for the list of what libraries you are missing, as I mentioned in the previous post, they are listed on page 5 of the document I linked, also below:

If you are using 64-bit Linux, then you need 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the following libraries/packages:




(there are possibly others as the lists provided assume you are using a officially supported OS, and no matter how similar, there are always differences among flavors of Linux)

Also possibly these:

compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61 (This is a RHEL5 package for unicode support, not sure what is applicable for your version of CentOS)

glibc 2.4
