Mehran said...Easy Install. Both startup & custom database. Eventhough it asks for 1.4G swap space and I had only 1+G

Tim... said...Yes, a number of the pre-requisites can be ignored if you are just playing with the technology.
Marius Andreiana said...Instead of two "ln -s ..." just do
chkconfig --add dbora
Gaby said...Your site is realy very interesting!
email@example.com said...Dear Tim:
Thank u 4 your article. It workx OK!!!
I have two little observations:
1) The Oracle SID on installation must be consistent on ./runistaller, /etc/oratab, .bash_profile and $ORA_HOME/dbs/init$SID.
2) Oracle 10 g ver 10.2.0.1.0 compressed file 10201_database_Unix32.zip when uncompressed creates a directory named. "database" not "Disk1" anymore.
Thank You again, Tim
I don't understand your first point. The ORACLE_SID in the article is consistently TSH1. Not sure what you mean here.
I think you may be confused on your second point also. The file name you quote is not the one I used for the installation. I used 10201_database_linux32.zip, which is the linux download from OTN. When unzipped, this produces the "db/Disk1" directory, as quoted in the article. Not a "database" directory.
Michael B said...Hi, thanks a lot for this help!
Exactly on the detail level I needed.
Worked 100% fine for me.
Brian .. said...Hi, thanks very helpful.
A few comments, from the current 10g R2 download
1. There is a bug in the dbstart script which you have to fix after install. It refers to /ade/vikrkuma_new/oracle which you must change to your ORACLE_HOME.
2. The current dowload 10201_database_linux32.zip does in fact create a "database" directory.
# unzip -l 10201_database_linux32.zip | head

Tim... said...I'll check this out, but the version of the zip file I used when I wrote this document unzipped to produce a directory called ""db/Disk1", so the article was correct at this time.
Art said...Needed Oracle AS install on FC4, but this helps.
Vick said...* Great documentation.
* Dont overthink the steps. Just follow it with your eyes closed. I can say this because I tried to overthink a couple steps and got lost... and had to do a rollback ;)
* I am building my own site with the installation and further admin steps at my college's webspace.
**** Thanx Tim ****
remi collet said...Thanks for this very-good documentation.
For information : on FC4 with full updates, netca and dbca doesn't work (in the installation process) if the compat-libf2c-32 is not present.
It should be added to the list.
I found the solution in the FC5 draft doc.
Hopes that help someone,
