Chaps - great article but I couldn't get the relinking to work until I downloaded the preinstall package:
# yum install oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall

The doc says it's for Linux 6 but the package comes down for "el7".
After this the install ran fine with the env_rdbms.mk file mods.

Hi.

The oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall package is not yet in the OL7 yum repository, so I guess you downloaded it from the OL6 repository...

Also, you don't need the relink if you install 12.1.0.2, which is what you should be installing now as it is available from OTN.

Cheers

On your ctx.mk error correction field, the right syntax will be (instead of --W1),
LINK=$(LDCCOM) -Wl,--no-as-needed
Also, I had to install an enchilada of zlib and zlib-devel libraries on top of what you mentioned.

Hi.

My text does say "Wl". Put the text into an editor and Ucase it. You will see it is a lower case "L". It is the monospace font that makes it look like a one. :)

I've not needed those extra libraries. You must be picking a different base installation to me.

Cheers

Thanks Tim. Good thing, I copied your -Wl part and pasted it, otherwise I would have scratched my head for another 10 minutes to figure out the error. Regarding you other comments, I think you are right. Linux should have a common "almost complete" base install. Too many install option creates an heterogeneous echosystem.

Great tutorial! I spent 3 days with Oracle "installation guides"...

Anyway I ran into an error with the Oracle Database Configuration Assistant failing with error INS-20802.

Looking through the trace file I saw:
java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.

Not sure why but this fixed me right up:
xhost +
