DB2 Setup Switches

Is there any way to make DB2 setup bypass the installation of the .NET runtimes, and just install the base application?

Exactly my point. However, you can install .net in some capacity with the winetricks script. Now all I need is to be able to run the setup program!

I finally got around to trying this. Better result than I expected, though not what I hoped for. Thanks anyway boris :)

So that's DB2 running on Wine? Looks like the most important part doesn't render ;( I wonder how well it would work with Mono, but then the SlimDX stuff probably needed to be rewritten.

Yeah, that's DB2 r1250 in Wine 1.1.42 with .NET installed via winetricks as the MS installer package freezes. The SlimDX installer just works so no dramas there.

I've run other Mono software (Jodwin's C# WAD Launcher) via Mono, though you are right, DB2 complains that the SlimDX library is missing.
