[SOLVED] Installation of Oracle 11gR2 on CentOS 5.4

Post by harvarinder » 2010/05/17 10:21:27

Hi,

I am installing Oracle 11gR2 32 bit on CentOS 5.4 and all of the oracle Prerequisites are failing. I am doing the following the steps on http://planetvm.net/blog/?p=1353 to prepare the OS.

encountered the following problems:

After unzip linux_11gR2_database_1of2.zip unzip linux_11gR2_database_2of2.zip from the above link the runInstaller do not have right permissions so I did

chmod 775 runInstaller

Then under install directory there are some file which do not have correct permissions then I did following under install directory

chmod 775 *

this resulted me by pass permissions error from runInstaller and .oui and unzip


Issue is occurring at the point when the Prerequisites are checked. All of them are failing. below are some of the lines from install log:

[SOLVED] Installation of Oracle 11gR2 on CentOS 5.4

on this blog , the guy uses "sudo" for some unknown reason
do all of the OS preparation command using root . run the installer using [b]oracle[/b] user
and not root . the installer may ask you to run [b]root.sh[/b] later on
there are lots of manuals on the web , personally i prefer to follow the original from Oracle
when it comes to production system .
you may find full documents for linux x86 install under :
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e10840/toc.htm
or a quick install guide here :

Hi Friends,

Thank you very much for your help.

I am able to install Oracle 11gR2 on CentOS 5.2 and 5.4 without any problems. I have followed the following steps to make it happen.

I think the issue was because of permissions.

chmod -R 777 linux_11gR2_database_1of2
chmod -R 777 linux_11gR2_database_2of2

then copy the content of Components folder from linux_11gR2_database_2of2 to the Components folder of linux_11gR2_database_1of2 (That is copying all the folders and file from Components to Components)

chmod -R 777 linux_11gR2_database_1of2

then ./runInstaller

and all worked very well.

Please mark the thread as closed.

Thank you.
Harvey.
