Post by dxf1 » 2010/03/03 13:40:20

I have installed Oracle on Centos 5.4 to do this I have installed the following packages......

yum install compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3
yum install compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3
yum install elfutils-libelf-devel-0.97
yum install gcc-c++-3.4.6
yum install gcc-c++
yum install elfutils-libelf-devel
yum install libaio-devel
yum install libstdc++-devel
yum install pdksh
yum install binutils
yum install elfutils-libelf
yum install gcc-c++
yum install glibc
yum install glibc-common
yum install glibc-devel
yum install glibc-headers
yum install ksh
yum install libgcc
yum install make
yum install sysstat
yum install unixODBC
yum install unixODBC-devel

and these which were not available in yum

rpm -ivh compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.128.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh compat-gcc-c++-7.3-2.96.128.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.128.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh compat-libstdc++-devel-7.3-2.96.128.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh compat-gcc-c++-7.3-2.96.128.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh XFree86-libs-4.3.0-78.EL.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh XFree86-libs-data-4.3.0-78.EL.i386.rpm

You asked for it -- you've got it. :lol:

It might be more appropriate for you to try --

[code]
[b]yum reinstall "X Window System"[/b]
[/code]

xserver wont start following rpm updates

Post by pschaff » 2010/03/04 00:26:28

After gazing long and hard into my crystal ball I divine that [b]Alan[/b] meant
[code]yum reinstall @x-window-system [/code]

I also see that you meant to post in the "CentOS 5 - Oracle Installation and Support" forum and not "CentOS 5 - X86_64, s390(x) and PowerPC Support" so will move you there; and one more thing is becoming clear in the mists... Yes - "If you break it you get to keep all the pieces!" :-)

I was hoping by moving to the Oracle forum that someone knowledgeable might comment on the above. Are those really necessary for Oracle? xorg was forked from XFree86. I strongly suspect you do not want XFree86.

At this point I'd try the following from a root login on a text-mode console in runlevel 3 (which is presumably the only option at this point).
[code]
yum remove XFree86-libs XFree86-libs-data openmotif
yum groupremove "X Window System"
yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

Optional:
yum groupinstall "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"
- plus anything else important removed above -

If and only if required for Oracle:
yum install @x-window-system openmotif
[/code]

Thankyou for the advice I have installed the packages as below.

yum remove XFree86-libs XFree86-libs-data openmotif
yum groupremove "X Window System"
yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"


The server on reboot now reports an issue "INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled fro 5 minutes"

This caption repeates every 5 min X is still not available

Best Regards, Dave

Boot to runlevel 3 and run system-config-display as described [url=https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=21252&forum=37&post_id=81147#forumpost81147]in this post[/url].
