On some systems, the RPM post install script does not properly
execute the init script necessary to get the IA-64 binary
executed by the simulator. It is very easy to fix.

As root, simply type:

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/ia64fmt start

Then you will be able to run the IA-64 binary inside the NUE environment.
Note that next time you reboot your system, the rc script will be executed
