Comments for Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2) Installation On Fedora 16 (F16)
lesio said...What about Asm on Fedora ? Possible ?
Tim... said...ASM Require the Grid Infrastructure. This is quite a fussy beast. I'm sure it is possible, but I would never bother with it. If I were doing something useful like ASM or RAC I would use Oracle Linux.
Probably the only real thing I would use Fedora for is installing an Oracle Client. :)
Vasanth said...I have installed all the packages you have mentioned.
But, the prerequisite check fails for these :
What could be the problem ?
If you installed the package groups I did during the OS installation it should be fine. If not, you will need to install all the package I commented out also.
RD said...THANK YOU LOTS FOR THE GUIDE!
I need Oracle 11g for a course and had not been able to install it before.
Now I followed your guide and everything OK.
I ignored the installer complaining about the packages mentioned above by "vasanth". Notice that it oafishly requires the i386 packages.
I also had a linker problem later during install and ignored it (clicked continue).
FC16 / 64bit
The i386 warnings are not a problem. That functionality is provided by the i686 packages. The link issue is a problem, but that only affect enterprise manager, not the main DB.
RD said...Yes, it _should_ notice that the i686 packages are present.
The DB started shortly after install - even EM worked fine, but since then I have not been able to restart it :-(
I keep getting TNS-00515, TNS-00516, TNS-12546 ... when attempting to restart it. Tried out lots of things from forums but to no avail :-(
Tim... said...You would probably get better mileage out of running Oracle Linux 5.7 on a VM and installing Oracle on that. I only play with Fedora for fun. All my real instances are installed on VMs running OL5.7.
