I have no idea what this means. I did some searching online and found nothing helpful for what to do.

I really only need to install dbisql so I can connect to remote computers with Sybase and run queries. Is there a way I can just install dbisql? The file I have is:


and it's about 1.5GB. dbisql is in there, but I don't know what other files are needed.

RE: installation errors on AWS Linux AMI

Turned out the /tmp directory didn't exist. I created it and I was able to install.
