Error: Cannot find any supported depth for pixmap type viewrelesenotess_0.

Post by DrDave » 2020/03/18 21:30:58

I'm trying to install an old 64-bit version of a commercial product (Ansys HFSS). It is supported on Redhat 4 and 5. I've spoofed

Code: Select all

/etc/readhat-release
, so the installer thinks its running on a Redhat 5 system. First I got this errror message

Code: Select all

/lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory
A google found the solution to that.

Code: Select all

# yum install glibc.i686
When I try to run the installer, I'm getting the error message

Error: Cannot find any supported depth for pixmap type viewrelesenotess_0.

I don't recall any such problems when the application was installed many years ago, which was on CentOS 5.

Any ideas?

It's not a 64 bit app, it's 32 or it wouldn't need glibc.i686.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

It is a 64-bit application, but the installer must be 32-bit. The program is only supported on 64-bit systems.
