Fedora 11 and Oracle 11g…


It’s that time again where I check to see if Oracle installs on the latest version of Fedora. The result once again is yes, it does. The main website has the links to the articles. I would add links here only the browser on this internet cafe machine doesn’t support cut & pates. šŸ™‚

When I get on a real computer I’ll put the links in this post as well. šŸ™‚

This release of Fedora is probably quite significant as it is likely to be the base for RHEL6.

  1. Excellent.

    Pretty much same as FC10 but you’ve put the 64 bit library requirements in…slightly different to the ones I used on the FC10 x86_64 install (in the comments on your FC10 article)…I’ll try it with your list and then mine and see if it makes any difference to the pre-installation checklist warnings disappearing or not.

    I was going to try and beat you to it this time, but you’re just too quick with your bionic elbow now!

    Have a good trip to SF.



  2. Hi.

    Your list should work fine, and will no doubt prevent the prerequisite warnings. The only reason I used the versions I did is because they are from the matching 32-bit Fedora respository. It just felt “better” than using old versions. šŸ™‚



  3. …I have to admit, I’m no linux expert, so working out what libraries/packages to install was more of a guessing game for me really.

    As you say, some of yours are just newer versions of the ones I used…which means yours is “better” and should probably have less issues.


  4. Not much luck with Oracle 11gR2 and Fedora 12. complains about:

    The following packages failed to install :

    Checking for libaio-0.3.106-i386; Not found. Failed <<<<
    Checking for libstdc++-4.1.1-i386; Not found. Failed <<<<
    Checking for libgcc-4.1.1-i386; Not found. Failed <<<<
    Checking for glibc-devel-2.5-i386; Not found. Failed <<<<
    Checking for compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-i386; Not found. Failed <<<<

    I ignored them and got the database working once after installing the i686 packages. not sure how to get it working again since for some reason I broke my fedora install due to trying to install the nVidia drivers for Fedora 12.
