Comments for Oracle Database 19c Installation On Oracle Linux 8 (OL8)


Anonymous said...

It doesn't work - ./runInstaller statrts with error java.lang nullpointerexception.

Hi.

It works fine. I've done it several times. I've also got a vagrant build that installing it automatically. No problems.

The most likely cause is you have missed out a prerequisite.

Hi.

Forgot to say, my comments relate to the silent install. I never do GUI installs.

Cheers

Did you set the variable?

export CV_ASSUME_DISTID=OEL7.6

Hi.

Yes. That's why I put it in the article. :)

It's in my Vagrant build too.

https://github.com/oraclebase/vagrant/blob/master/database/ol8_19/scripts/oracle_software_installation.sh

Remember, this is not a supported platform.

Cheers

This is pretty valuable.
It would be even more valuable if there were some dates *anywhere* so viewers have an idea of the time of the conversation and accuracy.
It is now Feb 2020 and I am in search of when Oracle will support 19c db and Cluster Services (RAC) on OL8.x

Hi.

It is still not supported. When it does become supported I will make any necessary changes, supplied in the documentation, and remove the warning from the start. If you are running Oracle you will probably have a My Oracle Support account. This includes the certification information. If you check it today, you will see Oracle database is not certified on OL8.

If this happens at all, it will probably not be until after UEK is released for OL8.

It is possible they will skip this release and only certify 20c. We won't know until and official announcement is made.

Cheers
