This is a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) with answers related to the installation, configuration and use of the Informix Standard Engine and the ESQL/C development tool on Linux. It should, by all means, be considered a work in progress. It attempts to address the most frequently-encountered obstacles to getting Informix-SE installed and running on Linux. It is weak in certain areas, especially with respect to ODBC and ESQL/C. It does not attempt to give the reader a primer on relational database theory. Whole careers and shelves of books are dedicated to this subject. As time goes by, I hope to add a few pointers to the most relevant of these books.
