For anyone googling this thread to get Oracle and Centos to work: iirc Oracle checks the /etc/redhat-release file. Just change it to a RHEL value and the installer should proceed normally.

So, as root [code]
cp -a /etc/redhat-release /etc/redhat-release.orig
echo redhat-4, > /etc/redhat-release
... install Oracle ...
mv /etc/redhat-release.orig /etc/redhat-release
[/code]
should work.

For more google [code]

Thanks for stepping in [b]Kermit[/b], guess [b]pugu[/b] has moved on.

Note that when installing RAC , this method will not be acceptable by cluvfy (cluster verification utility) checks .
it will look for redhat-release package . to overcome this problem one can install redhat-release package
by geting the spec file and build the rpm

[code]yum install rpm-build -y
wget ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/enterprise/5Server/en/os/SRPMS/redhat-release-5Server-5.4.0.3.src.rpm
rpmbuild --rebuild redhat-release-5Server-5.4.0.3.src.rpm

-- remove centos-release because of conflict --

rpm -e --nodeps centos-release-5-3.el5.centos.1
rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/redhat-release-5Server-5.4.0.3.i386.rpm[/code]
resolts are :

[code]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Tikanga)
# cat /etc/issue.net
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Tikanga)
Kernel \r on an \m
# cat /etc/issue
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Tikanga)
Kernel \r on an \m
# rpm -qa|grep redhat-release
redhat-release-5Server-5.4.0.3[/code]
this will make sure you can go on with RAC install :-)
after you are done , reinstall the centos-release .

[code]wget http://ftp.linux.org.tr/centos/5.3/os/i386/CentOS/centos-release-5-3.el5.centos.1.i386.rpm
rpm -e --nodeps redhat-release
rpm -Uvh centos-release-5-3.el5.centos.1.i386.rpm[/code]
