Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (10.2.0.1) Installation On Fedora Core 6 (FC6) - A brief guide to installing Oracle 10g Release 2 (10.2.0.1) on Fedora Core 6 (FC6).



Andrew said...

Tim,

once again, thank you for your install guides. Just as a point of interest...I installed RDBMS 10.2 on Fedora Core 6 Beta 3 (version 5.92), but I did not need to swap the gennttab as was required for fedora 5. Swapping the file does not cause any harm, but is in this case not required.

Funnily enough I can get the RDBMS running on FC6 and on RHEL5, but no on FC5, grrr!
cheers, Andrew

Hi,

thank you for this wonderfull guide. I used it to install oracle 10g R2 on Fedora Core 6 Final version and it was very clear and helpful but there are 2 small notes I think it's because of the new Fedora version I use (it was released few days ago).

First: the part about installing the RPMS from the Fedora DVD some of the packages version are diffrent. I used the new versions by changing the version number at the end of the package name to match the new version.

Second: this part (During the installation, before the linking phase, edit the contents of the "$ORACLE_HOME/bin/gennttab" file, amending the following entries)
this is not needed anymore. I don't know why but it didn't work with me untill i skipped this part.

Thank you again for this helpfull guide

Hi.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'm on holiday at the moment, so I'll check out the installation when I get back.

Cheers

Great tuto, thanks.

I'm used to follow then (since RH9)

I've successfully installed Oracle 10gR2 on my FC6 box running x86_64 version of Linux/Oracle.

Same comment as Ahmed Alhonti about the version.

There is no more openmotif on Fedora and openmotif21 never exists on x86_64.

I run the installer (and the assistants) without it : no problem.

Regards

Thank you very much for this step by step oracle installation. It works fine with no problem.
Best regards.
Ahmed.

Mark Hall said...

Thanks Tim. You're guide rocks.

Charles Warren said...

I am installing on an X64 system.

When I tried to run the command for the openmotif package I got...
[oracle@Falcon ~]$ rpm -Uvh openmotif21-2.1.30-14.i386.rpm
warning: openmotif21-2.1.30-14.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/__db.000

And when I began the installation at a command prompt I got...

I installed all the packages in the list and did everything in the article.

Please help.

Charles Warren said...

Please forgive.

My bad.

Silly mistake.

No problem.

BTW, I am delighted with how smoothly the installation went now that the GENNTAB stuff with Fedora 5 is no longer necessary.

Tim... said...

Yeah, you've go to o it as the "root" user. :)

Cheers

Erick said...

Hi Tim,

Like with Fedora Core 5 I had to remove the following line from /etc/pam.d/login after the database intallation. My terminals from tty1 through tty6 don't allowed me to login. After entering the password it just returns to the login screen.

#session required /lib/security/pam_limits.so

After this line was commented out from /etc/pam.d/login then it does allow me to login freely.

Any ideas ?

Tim... said...

Hi.

I'm afraid I don't understand. I'm not a Linux expert, I just use it and follow the install guides. This line is in the install guide, so I use it and it works for me. :)

Cheers

Tim...

Not sure about i386 platform, but for linux-ppc (Linux on IBM pSeries machines) you have to install IBM XLC libraries from http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24007906

otherwise link step fails (-lxl not found)

please kindly add this to your instructions (for PowerPC/POWER platform)

Tim... said...

Hi.

Remember, questions in the forum, not in the comments!

It looks like the libXP shared object is missing from one of the installation directories. I think you may have a problem with your installation media. Download it again, making sure you get the correct version for your platform.

Cheers

Tim...

Davide Bolcioni said...

The guide is fine, except for a few nitpicks. First, it would be handy to have the exact RPMS spelled out because on an x86_64 system installing unnecessary i386 RPMS brings in a lot of unnecessary stuff. Contradicting the above :-), I found necessary to explicitly add the i386 version of glibc-devel (I already had the x86_64 version installed, of course) otherwise I would get linking errors with crt1.o missing (at which point you have to restart the install from scratch, continuing just leads to missing symbols further on, when linking the agent).

Tim... said...

Hi.

I don't have access to an x86_64 machine, so I can't confirm the installation procedure. That's why I wrote x86 on the article.

Cheers

Tim... said...

Hi.

You'' see in the second sentence I state that this article is about an "FC6 X86" installation, not an "FC6 X86-64" installation. I don't have a 64 bit machine, so I can't test the install. As a ersult, I have no idea what your problem is.

Sorry.

Hi.

Please ask questions in the forum, not in the comments!

Do one of the following:

- On the console, log in as the oracle user, not "su - oracle".

- If you are using X emulation on a remote PC, export your display variable using the name or IP address of your local PC, not "localhost":

export DISPLAY=mypc:0.0

Any more questions, ask them in the forum please.

Cheers

Tim...

java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using 'localhost:0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.

Same error for me i set the display please help me manu_b23@yhaoo.co.in

Tim... said...

Hi.

Please ask questions on the forum, not in the comments. I don't do personal emails. The answer I gave the previous person applies to you also. The DISPLAY setting is only necessary of you are using X emulation. If yo are on the console, log off and log in as "oracle". Don't "su -".

For x64 use >

If that's not the case see following logs:
tail -f /var/log/secure
