I would like to know how to install Oracle 9i AS on Red Hat Advanced Server 3.0. I seem to be having trouble because the runInstaller screen is not working.
In order to install an Oracle9i database on AS 3, the "Oracle9i Patch Set" patchset and some other patches must be applied. Some errors can only be fixed by applying the 188.8.131.52 patchset.
Install the following RPMs:
- compat-db-4.0.14-5.i386.rpm \
- compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.122.i386.rpm \
- compat-gcc-c++-7.3-2.96.122.i386.rpm \
- compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.122.i386.rpm \
- compat-libstdc++-devel-7.3-2.96.122.i386.rpm \
- openmotif21-2.1.30-8.i386.rpm \
- setarch-1.3-1.i386.rpm \
mv /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/gcc323
ln -s /usr/bin/gcc296 /usr/bin/gcc
mv /usr/bin/g++ /usr/bin/g++323
ln -s /usr/bin/g++296 /usr/bin/g++
If you get the following message:
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Unable to load native library: /tmp/OraInstall2003-10-25_03-14-57PM/jre/lib/i386/libjava.so:
symbol __libc_wait, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference
you'll need to download the patch p3006854_9204_LINUX.zip from http://metalink.oracle.com.
You must also make sure you set your display environment, as there is no character-based install for Oracle.
(I.E. export DISPLAY=yourserver:0.0)
Always make sure you check your temp log files carefully:
