Hi Andy,

may i know which rpms did not install? i cannot install pdksh, gnome_libs and xscreensaver.

I've tried a couple of installing the OAS, can't get past the OUI.

Installing SOA version of app server soa_linux_x86_bpel_101310.cpio on AMD x86-64, following above instructions I got error that platform was not right then errors in configuration assistant at the end, here are the things I did, one or more of them did the trick - I went back to oracle doco and combined it with the guide above.

Definitely Needed
1. ./ all " " -overwrite orabpel oraesb orawsm
2. ./runInstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs (without ignore switch wouldn't start)

Nearly definitely needed
1. Rename /etc/ant.conf (web services inspection assistant failure)

Tried these extra steps too and one may be important !
1.Downloaded compat-gcc-8- from and installed
2.downloaded compat-db-4.3.29-2.fc7.i386.rpm from and installed
3. "linux32 bash" before starting installer to enter 32 bit shell
4.unset the env vars containing any oracle settings before running installer, do "env|grep -i ora" then unset ORACLE_SID & ORACLE_HOME and take oracle stuff out of path, LD_LIBRARY_PATH etc.

I've already added the ant.conf stuff. I didn't have to do anything else for x86.

It seems there have been a number of changes between 10.1.3 and
