Installing using a customized JVM on Linux or AIX operating systems

You might want to use a customized Java virtual machine (JVM) during the installation. For example, if your custom JVM has been enabled to work with a screen reader, such as JAWS for Linux. Make sure that you use Java 1.8 or later.


  1. Locate the IBM Traveler installation application.
  2. On a command line, change the directory to the location of the installation application.
  3. Launch the installation application using the LAX_VM parameter to specify which JVM to use:

    ./installername LAX_VM fully-qualified java path

    For example, ./TravelerSetup LAX_VM /opt/ibm/java-i386-80/bin/java
