RPM Packages for Oracle 10g Enterprise Manager Install

Post by ramangill » 2007/04/03 15:39:57

Hi Everyone,

I am new to the "CENTOS" world so you will need to bare with me. FYI: I am liking what I see so far :)

I following the install steps located on:
http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/10g/Oracle10gR2GridControlInstallationOnRedHatAndCentOS.php

and I trying to understand one thing. It says I need to check if the following packages are installed:
"The documentation states that the following packages are required by the relevant operating systems:"

# Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0 and CentOS 3.x
glibc-2.2.4-31.7
make-3.79
binutils-2.11.90.0.8-12
gcc-2.96
openmotif21-2.1.30-11


# Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0 and CentOS 4.x
glibc-2.3.4-2.9
make-3.79
binutils-2.15.92.0.2-13
gcc-3.4.3-22.1
libaio-0.3.96
glibc-common-2.3.4-2.9
setarch-1.6-1
pdksh-5.2.14-30
openmotif21-2.1.30-11
sysstat-5.0.5-1
gnome-libs-1.4.1.2.90-44.1
libstdc++-3.4.3-22.1
libstdc++devel-3.4.3-22.1
compat-libstdc++-296-2.96-132.7.2
compat-db-4.1.25-9
control-center-2.8.0-12
xscreensaver-4.18-5.rhel4.2

Now....I am running CentOS 5 (Beta) and I wanted to know how I can check if these are already installed. Is there a quick way of doing this? The other side to this is, I installed CentOS using my DVD Drive (with regualr CD's...6 of them), and when I am on the desktop, I can not access the drtive. I have a DVD in there now and everytime I open the icon, it tells me that I can not mount it cause there might be no media in there. I also check the /media folder and there is nothing in there. Should this not have been mounted by default? If not, how do I get it working then. Please treat me as a beginner.

Thanks again :)

The easy way to check is to drop the version numbers. That is run, as any user, "rpm -q glibc-common" or "rpm -q make". That will show the C5 version number. That's not to say that it will work with a higher version, however... let us know how that goes :-D

Yes I did that and I found some and installed them and others I did not find. I also went back into my 6 cd's I have for the installations and I can not locate them. For example, I need the pdksh package and gnome-libs library...where do I get them if I can not get them from the CD's?

The easy way it to let YUM do the work for you... (if you are net attached)
So, as root, run "yum search pdksh" will look for case in-sensitive regex of "pdksh" in the summary sections of the availible (repo'd) rpm's.
"yum provides pdksh" will look for "pdksh" in *any* part of a file that *any* package owns (you often get more that you bargain for).
Both commands are helpful figuring out what/where something is with little effort.

Still no luch on some of them.

You see the problem is I am installing Oracle 10g Enterprise Manager and when it does its pre-reqs, it goes through the required packages and it finds some missing. It also find some missing, but I know that they are there but just as a new version so I am ok there, however the others I will eventually need. I have the option to install OEM with out them but some functions will not work, so I guess I will need them.

for example I ran:

root#> yum search pdksh
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
No Matches Found
root#>

:(

Now......

You don't have repos (i'net) enabled...
[code]yum search pdksh
Repository update is listed more than once in the configuration
Repository base is listed more than once in the configuration
Repository centosplus is listed more than once in the configuration
Searching Packages:
Setting up repositories
update 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
cassens 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
base 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files


pdksh.i386 5.2.14-30.3 base
Matched from:
pdksh
The pdksh package contains PD-ksh, a clone of the Korn shell (ksh).
The ksh shell is a command interpreter intended for both interactive
and shell script use. Ksh's command language is a superset of the sh
shell language.

Install the pdksh package if you want to use a version of the ksh
shell.

So is there a way to enable this so that I always can use this feature?

You see this is my output:

[root@SIS-TOR-EM10G ~]# yum search pdksh
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up repositories
update 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
base 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
extras 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00

No Matches found
[root@SIS-TOR-EM10G ~]#


I only have 3 packages left to install this being one as well as the gnome-libs & xscreensaver.

Why I need the last is beyond me :)

RPM Packages for Oracle 10g Enterprise Manager Install

Post by jtoledo » 2007/04/15 09:01:44

Sometimes in Centos CD's or DVD, doesn't appear the RPMs needed for Oracle installations on Linux.

Recently I've installed 9iR2 and 10g2 (after reformat) on PC with 512MB and Centos 4.4.

There are 2 sites for locate RPMs missing:

The best (for me) is http://rpm.pbone.net/ where you can indicate what kind or distro of Linux you had installed or looking for a specific RPM flavor ....

Another site is http://rpmfind.net/.

Another tip: Thanks to the similarities between Centos and RH or Fedora, if you don't find a RPM in a specific version for Centos, you can download a RPM that satisfies the number version and belongs to Fedora or RedHat.

In previous installations of Centos 4.3 (Oracle 8 and 9i), I need to install older RPMs, since RH 7.1 or 7.3... because in newer versions, some RPMS where deprecated or includes a very new version... and for compatiblity reasons, I had preferred use the specific version that the documentation indicates.

Yesterday I finished to install Centos 5 in my new PC and the next week I have planned install Oracle 10g2 on it.... I will tell what's happen. I hope you can find it...
