Install RTC 4.0.1 on RHEL

Dominic Pfeil (324) | asked Nov 05 '13, 12:21 p.m.
Hello there,
I just started using Red Hat Enterprise Linux today, and I am not able to figure out, how to install RTC 4.0.1 on this OS. It does not appear in the software center in I cannot install it with the IBM rational installer (it does not appear on the list and I even cannot install RTC 3, which is provided there). I would be really happy, if someone may help me.
Thank you!

You should be able to download the Linux Web installer from this link:
This will include the correct version of IM to install the product directly from the repository.

The getting started page  contains information on how to perform the install.

If you already have IM installed you should be able to add the following link to the installation repositories.

Hi Dominic,

Yes the eclipse client should be listed as one of the available packages to install.
It should show up in the list as:

if i search yum for it, i only find 'get rational' and 'rational installer' and i cannot find it in the application 'add/remove software'

Hi Dominic,

Sorry I meant it should be listed as one of the applications inside of Installation Manager (IM). The Linux Web installer I mentioned in my answer above is a version IM that is configured to install itself and includes the correct repositories to install the various applications from the

You can also download the client as a zip file and just unzip it.
It comes with a 32 bit jvm which should be good enough for most usage scenarios.
