I just started to use Ubuntu. I installed the 12.04 64bit Ubuntu. Java and Eclipse are installed and working fine. When I install Accurev, I got the following error:

Preparing to install...
Extracting the JRE from the installer archive...
Unpacking the JRE...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
strings: '/lib/': No such file

Launching installer...

./AccuRev_5_4_1_LinuxClientOnly_x86_2_4.bin: 3310: exec: /tmp/install.dir.2907/Linux/resource/jre/bin/java: not found

anybody can help me? thanks

In this site you have the solution, and I've seen that same problem before with other software, with other linux:

You have to create a symbolic link to /lib/ Do that:

  1. Locate the file


  2. Create a symbolic link

    ln -s /path/to/ /lib/

Or a one liner if you're feeling lucky: sudo ln -s `locate` /lib/ – Shane Dec 10 '14 at 20:07

A quick solution.

Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run the following commands:

For 64-bit Ubuntu:

sudo ln -s /lib64/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /lib64/

For 32-bit Ubuntu:

sudo ln -s /lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /lib/

in Kubuntu 14.04 there is no /lib64/x86_64-linux-gnu, but there is /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu – AntonioK Jan 27 '15 at 8:07
