Has anyone tried to install Oracle 11gR2 on Red Hat Linux 6 64bit?

The Oracle Universal Installer is checking for some Red Hat packages which are not the ones in Linux 6. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?

I'm aware that RHE6 is not certified yet. Someone was able to install it according to this link http://server.billhamilton.com:84/wp/oracle/installing-oracle-11gr2-on-
rhel6-in-4-long-steps/ but I'm not sure on how he got around the packages requirement.
I suggest see Tim's site

  • Problem on installing oracle 9i on red hat linux

    anybody having experience on installing oracle on redhat?
    I've tried to install oracle 9i on redhat 8.0. but when I run the
    install command "./runInstaller" under Disk1,
    I got a error msg: "line 58: ./runInstaller: cannot execute binary
    file". (my x windows system works normally.)
    the runInstaller in the error msg is that one under
    /Disk1/install/linux. so what can I do to solve this problem?

    I had the same problem. In my case, it was because of downloading an version of the software. You can check this by running the command:
    readelf -h /cdrom/Disk1/install/linux/runinstaller
    you should see something like

    Did you carefully go through all pre-req steps for install?
    Oracle needs some "compatibility libraries" as well (compat-lib*). Here are packages for AS 10g, most or all of which apply to Database too.
    Checking operating system packages: gcc-3.2.3-20,compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.122,compat-gcc-c++-7.3-2.96.122,compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.122,compat-libstdc++-devel-7.3-2.96.122,setarch-1.3-1,pdksh-5.2.14,sysstat-4.0.7,gnome-libs-,libstdc++-3.2.3,compat-libstdc++-devel-7.3-2.96.122,compat-glibc-7.x-
    When required packages are in place, there's another error lurking, related to __libc_wait symbol.
    runInstaller "boots" OUI, which includes running a JRE from tmp. This JRE (build 02) is broken, but you can setup to run another one via oraparam.ini and JRE_LOCATION. Download build 10 from Sun (google "jre 1.3.1 download").

  • Patches for Installing Oracle 9i on Red Hat Enterprise LINUX 3.0 AS

    I recently purchased An Oracle Database Enterprise Edition � Trial License.
    I am attempting to install Oracle 9i on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server 3 (RHEL AS 3).
    After several unsuccessful attempts and consultation with the FAQs available on the Oracle site I have discovered
    that it can not be installed without the following patches.
    Can anyone tell me how I can aquire these patches?
    This is for an eval of the product on the platform mentioned above. If I can not complete a successful install,
    there is no way for my company to evaluate the product
    and eventually purchase it.
    You can contact me at this email address [email protected]

  • After installing glibc patch (oracle9i - red hat linux 8)

    My oracle9i was working fine on red hat linux 8. but after installation of a glibc patch
    "glibc-2.1..3-stubs.tar.gz" something has gone wrong. it has renamed executables by appending/suffixing
    zero '0' to the filenames. e.g sqlplus is sqlplus0
    i cannot find my sqlplus? i am afraid to restart the system?
    should i restart? what is the problem?

    Whenever you re-link Oracle, it makes backup copies of the executables (appending 0 to the filename). However, you should have a new SQLPLUS. I would suggest just doing a
    relink all
    from a command prompt as user Oracle and see if that helps.

  • How to upgrdae Oracle Cluster on Red Hat Linux 3 to Red hat Linux 4 AS U 7

    We need to upgrade our Clustered (2 Nodes) Oracle Database environment on Linux environment to Red Hat 4 AS 7. The current OS version is Red Hat 3 update 6. We use EMC SAN Storage as shared storage (OCFS and Raw Devices) for our 9i and 10g databases
    Question: We will install (on local disks) Red Hat 4 AS Update 7 and then install ocfs and ASMlib RPMs. Is there any risk of loosing the existing (on Red Hat 3 update 6) ocfs file systems and raw devices (from EMC SAN Storgae) after we do fresh install of OS and ocfs and ASMlib RPMs? How can we keep the shared storage data quickly available (without restore from the backup) to the system after installing Red Hat 4 AS Update 7 and mentioned RPMs?

    Below are the outputs in he current environmet with Red Hat Linux 3

  • How to install ECC IDES in RED HAT linux version 5

    I would like to install ECC IDES in linux OS. I dont know Linux. So it is difficult for me to install.
    I am having 500 gb HD.and in that 30 GB allocated as NTFS for WinXP.
    Left space(470 GB Free) for linux and ECC IDES. 
    I want to know - how to partition this 470 GB in linux. I dont know which file system should be allocated and how it should be partitioned. I am using RED HAT LINUX Version 5.
    i need a step by step process to install red hat linux with proper(file system) partition and
    I need a step by step process to install IDES with Linux commands.
    Thank You

    Get the official installation guides at
    However, they won't contain "now enter command X and now enter command Y". You will need to have a basic understanding what you are doing before you can install a SAP system (and the database).

  • Order of installing Windows XP, Solaris & Red Hat Linux...

    Hi all,
    If I were to install Windows XP, Red Hat Linux & Solaris in intel dual core machine, in which order do I proceed to install. First Windows XP, then Solaris & Linux, I believe. Am I right. If not, please correct me.

    Although posted under different title and content, your most recent thread
    Windows and Solaris not booting on a Windows, Solaris and Linux Machine.
    is actually the duplicate of this thread.
    The right order of install is Windows XP, RHEL, Solaris. Because, if the Linux is the last installed OS, the Linux version of GRUB will be installed on the MBR (Master Boot Record), and you will not be able to boot Solaris. Why? Because the Linux GRUB doesn't currently recognize Solaris VTOC (Volume Table Of Contents) and UFS (Universal Disk Format File System) formats. Only the Solaris version of GRUB works as common loader for Solaris and Linux. Since you installed Linux as the last OS (as per your duplicated thread), you can try to chainload from the Linux GRUB by modifying the grub.conf on Linux, eg:
    # cat /boot/grub/grub.conf
    color white/blue black/cyan
    title Windows XP
         rootnoverify (hd0,0)
         chainloader +1
    title Solaris 5.10
         root (hd0,1)
         chainloader +1
    title Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (2.6.9-78.0.1.el5)
         root (hd0,2)
         kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-78.0.1.el5 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
         initrd /initrd-2.6.9-78.0.1.el5.imgwhere
    (hd0) is the first (bootable) BIOS physical disk, and GRUB boot loader is installed on its MBR
    (hd0,0) is the first primary partition of the first BIOS disk - Windows XP
    (hd0,1) is the second primary partition of the first BIOS disk - Solaris 5.10
    (hd0,2) is the third primary partition of the first BIOS disk - RHEL-4
    Modify this according to your real disk partition map if it's necessary.
    If this doesn't work (at least it should work for Windows and Linux), then I suggest reinstalling all three OSs from the ground up. A year ago I successfully installed Windows Server 2003, RHEL-4.5 and Solaris 10 on single 250 GB physical disk. You can follow my procedure. Before that, boot the system with the first RHEL-4 installation CD, type "linux rescue" and press Enter. When linux console appears, delete all partitions using fdisk. Or, alternatively, type
    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1024 count=2048This will erase your Master Boot Record and MBR Partition Table inside it, even much more filling out 2 MB continuous disk area with zeros. Restart the system, insert Windows installation media and start the procedure:
    1. install Windows XP as the first OS. If it doesn't matter, create only one 25 GB C: drive on the entire primary partition rather than 10 GB C: and 15 GB D: drives, unless you are not sure Solaris had overwritten the D: drive on the extended partition
    2. install RHEL-4 as the second OS. At this point you will be able to access Windows and RHEL-4 from GRUB. Boot RHEL-4 and navigate to /boot/grub/grub.conf. As you might need this information later, copy or make a note of the Linux entry on paper. The entry is something like this:
    title Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (2.6.9-78.0.1.el5)
         root (hd0,1)
         kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-78.0.1.el5 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
         initrd /initrd-2.6.9-78.0.1.el5.img3. install Solaris 10 (SunOS 5.10) as the third OS. That way the Solaris version of GRUB will overwrite Linux GRUB in MBR and will be installed as the common loader for all three OSs. At this point your system might be set to boot all three operating systems. If not, you will be able to access the Solaris and Windows only. In that case boot Solaris, navigate to /boot/grub/menu.lst and add the Linux entry you copied from Linux grub.conf in the step 2. The next time you restart the system, you should be able to boot all three operating systems using Solaris version of GRUB.
