Danger, Will Robinson! Obligatory warning below.
So here we go…
Fedora 29 has been out for a bit over a week now. Over the weekend I had a play with it and noticed a couple of differences between Fedora 28 and Fedora 29 as far as Oracle installations are concerned. There are some extra packages that need to be installed. Also, one of the two symbolic links that were needed for the Oracle installation on Fedora 28 is now present in Fedora 29, but pointing to the wrong version of the package.
Here are the articles I did as a result of this.
- Fedora 29 (F29) Installation
- Oracle Database 12c Release 2 (12.2) Installation On Fedora 29 (F29)
- Oracle Database 18c Installation On Fedora 29 (F29)
It’s pretty similar to the installation on Fedora 28, with the exception of the extra packages and a slight alteration to the symbolic links.
Once the “bento/fedora-29” box becomes available I’ll probably do a Vagrant build for this, but for the moment is was the old fashioned approach. 🙂
So now you know how to do it, please don’t! 🙂
