Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (10.2.0.1) Installation On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5) - A brief guide to installing Oracle 10g Release 2 (10.2.0.1) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5).

"Edit the /etc/redhat-release file replacing the current release information (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5 (Tikanga)) with the following:"

not need, use instead ./runInstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs

Thanks for your article. It was the only one I'd found that got me up and going on Oracle EL and 10g. I did find though that going back and installing the required packages was cumbersome do to package dependencies. After a couple of rounds at swapping out DVDs for the correct packages, I decided to start my install fresh and customize my OS package install. From there I didn't have to install another package, and the runInstaller came up without a hitch with the exception of a DISPLAY issue that I resolved in an xterm window with DISPLAY=:0.0, significantly more simple than installing packages and resolving dependencies.
Thanks again for a great doc!

Thanks much for your article. 10g on EL5 went smoothly without a hitch. Btw, I tried what mike_t said about --ignoreSysPrereqs on another installation. I think you'll be stuck again when the Installer does the "Product-specific prerequisite checks" which is what I faced.

Followed this for Centos 5 and it worked flawlessly. All required packages were added using YUM Extender, not disks. Thanks very much for your efforts.

Installing on CentOS 5.1 to prevent the error:

java: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2: cannot open shared object

enter the following as root:

cd /usr/lib
ln -s libstdc++.so.6.0.8 libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2

Hi,
I did all that on my RHEL5.1, I can start the installer but the second screen I always have an error OUI-10133: "Invalid staging area. There are no top level components for Linux available for installation in this staging area".
Did I miss somethig ?

Looks like one dependency was missed -- I also need to install glibc-devel. Otherwise a great guide, thanks!

Thanks for the article but I was faced with this error: Exception java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /tmp/OraInstall2009-03-02_10-57-23AM/jre/1.4.2/lib/i386/libawt.so: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory occurred.

But I managed to resolve it by installing the xorg-x11-deprecated-libs package which to my surprise is not available in all 5 Oracle linux CDs.

Thanks for your great work.

Regards,
Philani

Muito bom o artigo,
acho que a Oracle deveria disponibilizar tbm a instalação em modo texto com verificação dos requisitos de sistema,

Deus te abençoe!
obrigado

Aurelian said...

I've tried using other tutorials and I failed (too many complicated errors after install, the db couldn't start or emctl wouldn't start) but with this tutorial worked perfectly!
And it's for beginners... not like other super complicated stuff

10g is no longer available for download from oracle.com

Hi.

It's an old article. Things change. You can get it from Oracle if you raise an SR on My Oracle Support.

Cheers
