Oracle 12c on Fedora 28


As always, I have to start with a warning.

So here we go…

Fedora 28 has been out for quite a while now. I installed it pretty much when it was released, but hit a problem with installing Oracle 12c on it. I didn’t have much time to investigate at the time and I kind-of forgot about it. A couple of days ago someone asked me about it, so I had another attempt. The only difference compared to Fedora 27 was a couple of extra symbolic links were needed.

Here were the articles I did as a result of this.

It’s pretty much the same as the installation on Fedora 27, with the exception of those extra symbolic links.

If you are feeling lazy/efficient you can do it all with Vagrant, as described here. 🙂

So now you know how to do it, please don’t! 🙂
