Hello Tim

What about Grid and ASM configuration on Centos, Fedora ?
Oracle community is waiting barely breathing ...
Please enlighten us.

Hi.

I'm not doing anything about grid or ASM because Fedora is not a sensible OS to do these things on. For a real installation, use a hypervisor to run a VM and install RHEL or OEL which are actually supported and install without errors. The virtualization products are free and so is OEL, so there is really no reason to install on an unsupported OS like Fedora.

Cheers

For the part where things need to be added to ~/.bash_profile, there should be a note saying that the hostname will need to be adjusted.

Also, it might be a good idea to adjust /etc/hosts and remove hostname.localdomain from the loopback interface. where Fedora adds it during installation

Excellent article and very helpful but there is one typo. In the profile you set ORACLE_SID=DB11G but in the oratab you specify DB12G (should be DB11G).

Cheers!

Hi.

I've corrected the typo. Thanks for the heads-up.

Hi,

After I installed Oracle on F12, do I need to start my F12 always use the oracle account to let my Oracle database running? I'm new to both. And the tutorial is really good. Thanks.

Hi.

Read the article in the links at the end of the article. It tells you how to automate the startup, so you don't need to log in.

Cheers

Although obvious, please include gcc in the package to be installed.

Tim... said...

Hi.

If you do the Fedora installation with the package groups I suggest, this is already present. I do state that deviation from this type of installation may require additional steps. :)

Cheers

Hi.

I do it step by step. But the installation of oracle 11g faild with an mikefile error?

Frank said...

Hi,

a lot of packages will be faild, when oracle check.

glibc-2.11.1-1.i686
Could not be installed

Tim... said...

Hi.

It sounds to me like you haven't done the Fedora installation I suggested, with all the specified package groups.

You need to install all the package groups listed and then install all the extra pre-requisite packages or it won;t work.

Remember too, I did a 64-bit installation. I have no idea how this guide would work for a 32-bit installation.

Cheers

Tim...

PS. Questions in the forum, not in the comments please.

"Note. We are not going to use th "asmadmin" group, since this installation will not use ASM.

Corrected typo now. Thank you.

Great procedure, although I had some variance.

Vista host, 32bit Fedora guest and 11g install required elfutils-libelf-devel and libstdc++-devel as well. I also had to change 2 values in sysctl.conf to the following:

net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 1024 65500
net.core.rmem_default = 4194304

These were only warnings but knowning how fickle this whole process can be, so I tried to make sure the prerequisite checks passed at 100%.

I don't know how you did it ... but there are several failes on software needed for me. It checks for i386 packages, but all the x86_64 packs corespondents are i686... not i386. I don't know how it checks.

another thing is that pdksh failes... ksh will do the job?
Thanks

Hi.

I only did a quick-and-dirty Oracle installation on F12. As I said in the text, the prerequisites will fail, but they can be ignored.

Cheers
