Oracle database 11g prerequisite packages.

Looks like you have a version of Oracle 11g designed to run on something like RHEL4. RHEL5 uses glibc-2.5, RHEL6 uses glibc-2.12 and you are looking for glibc-2.3.4 which must be ancient. Check the RPMs you have downloaded and make sure they are for the right release.

dydoria & TrevorH Oracle 11g database works for CentOS 6. From the bare minimal packages of CentOS 6 I also added bc + libaio + glibc packages.
Oracle listed that make, binutils should also be included for its requirements.

Hi Guys,

I'm a Linux newbie, and I'd like to install Oracle 11g, Release 2 Express Edition for Linux x86-64 on a new CentOS 6.0 x86-64 desktop that I just set up. I noticed in the Oracle documentation ( that as far as the RHEL OS goes, this particular version of Oracle requires either RHEL 4.7 or RHEL 5.2. Does that mean that should use a computer running either CentOS 4.7 or Centos 5.2 in order to run this version of Oracle properly? If I can indeed run Oracle 11g, R2 XE on CentOS 6, what specific steps should I take to ensure that Oracle installs properly on my current CentOS 6.0 desktop setup?

Please Advise,

Silly Linux Newbie
