DB2 10.5 Install on Red Hat

We often complain about IBM documentation (and sometimes for good reasons) but there are moments that I am really grateful about the technotes from IBM. Lately the amount seems to increase and the new formatting corresponding to the new IBM website layout is great.
I was installing DB2 10.5 on a Linux box and got an error

/apps/ibm/sources/server/db2/linuxamd64/install/db2setup: line 626: /tmp/db2.tmp.2522/db2/linuxamd64/install//db2chgpath: Permission denied
/apps/ibm/sources/server/db2/linuxamd64/install/db2setup: line 978: /tmp/db2.tmp.2522/db2/linuxamd64/install//db2setup_exec: Permission denied
/apps/ibm/sources/server/db2/linuxamd64/install/db2setup: line 978: exec: /tmp/db2.tmp.2522/db2/linuxamd64/install//db2setup_exec: cannot execute: Permission denied

Following technote describes this and 2 possible workarounds, yes 2 of them. Well done guys
