Oracle 11gR2 on Oracle Linux 6…

With the arrival of Oracle Linux 6 comes the inevitable installation articles.

The Oracle installation on Oracle Linux 6 is certainly smoother than the recent Fedora installations have been. Even Enterprise Manager works fine with no meddling.

The official 11gR2 installation guide has not been updated to include Oracle Linux 6 and I can’t see any notes on MOS about it, so I’ve essentially followed the installation for Oracle Linux 5 and adjusted where necessary. I’m guessing when the official notes are released they are going to be pretty close to this. I can’t see any certifications against Oracle Linux 6, so I guess I would avoid it for production Oracle installations at the moment.

Cheers

  1. Hi Tim,

    11gR2 installs without a problem. Now I am playing with Oracle fusion Middleware 11g Identity Management and that just does not install. 🙁
    It essentially complains about the wrong gcc version (4.4.4 is installed)
    /usr/lib/gcc/i686-redhat-linux/4.4.4/libgcc_s.so: undefined reference to `__stack_chk_fail@GLIBC_2.4′

    During the 11.1.1.4 patch installation there is still one complaint left in ins_emagent.mk. funny enough to see:
    Installation Successful.

    testing ….

  2. Good point, I am installing OL 6 right now for fun to see how it differs from previous Oracle Linux versions. Will test install for Oracle 11gR2 RAC and see if it works.

  3. I just dl last Oracle 11r2 for to install it on Oracle Linux 6 (X86_64) but we don’t have good rpm in DVD… how to fixe it ?

  4. Do you mean a specific RPM is missing, or it is corrupt?

    Either way, you can get specific RPMs off the public-yum.oracle.com site. Follow the setup instructions then just type “yum install rpm-name”.

    PLEASE GIVE SOLUATION ABOVE

  8. @nir : The answer is, it depends. In this case on how you are connecting to your server (console or from remote PC). If from the console, are you logged directly into the “oracle” user or did you do a “su – oracle”.

    If from a remote PC, do you have an X server running on your local PC? Are you using tunnelling (ssh -X) or not?

    Typically, the solution is pretty simple, but it’s a different solution depending on how you are actually connecting. 🙂
