Packages associated to "AIX runtime libraries" on AIX 5.3/6.1
Release Notes for NBU 18.104.22.168 states these prerequisites for AIX 5.3 (pag.18):
AIX runtime libraries 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199 or later
xlC.rte 188.8.131.52 fileset
I believe in this case we are
I believe in this case we are using those terms interchangably, yes. It would have been more precise if we had stuck with "C++ runtime libraries" as we did in the TechNote, but the AIX 5.3 section of this particular table is pretty much word for word what we had in the 184.108.40.206 Release Notes AND the 220.127.116.11 Release Notes. (...and the 7.5 Release Notes, 7.1 Release Notes AND 7.0 Release Notes, for that matter! So if you have ANY 7.x already working on your AIX 5.3 machine...you have probably already satisfied this condition.)
What the Release Notes are saying is that everything "xlC" needs to be at (18.104.22.168 or above) OR (22.214.171.124 or above)...
AND ALSO (if you're at 126.96.36.199) you may need IY91284.
Is this any clearer?
