hi,
great post.
Any hope for oracleasm package on fc14.
I've tried to implement raw devices with losetup but raw command is not working on fc14.

Hi.

Raw devices is deprecated on newer versions of Linux. You should use Block Devices.

You can see how to setup block devices here:

Hi and thanks for updating your guide.

However I still have a linking problem in fedora, which still needs to be solved manually. When you get the linking error,
vi /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/sysman/lib/ins_emagent.mk
and add -lnnz11 (nnz one one) to the failing build
$(SYSMANBIN)emdctl:
$(MK_EMAGENT_NMECTL) -lnnz11

Additionally I also tried 11.2.0.2, and this apparently needs /etc/sysctl.conf of:
kernel.shmmax = 4294967295

Hope thats useful to people.
Gordon.

pdksh-5.2.14 is missing. Where can I find this package to install.

I'm running Fedora 14 64-bit.

Thanks

Hi.

You don't need it. if you have followed the guide you will have installed the "ksh" package instead.

Cheers
