The file you need is libdb2_36.so. Do a locate for it.

For 8.1 it would be something like


So a 

/sbin/ldconfig /opt/IBMdb2/V8.1/lib

would make the library loader know where to find your copy of libdb2_36.so.

But I'm not sure version 8.2 is compatible with the current DB2
provider (I could not find definite documentation in the web but the
library may have been renamed to libdb2.so and may not be ABI/API

Also they've developed their own ADO.NET provider for 8.2 but it only
installs for .NET in Windows.
