Installing oracle 10g on FC 2


I'm getting the follower error when trying to start oracle universal installer:
Checking operating system version: must be redhat-2.1, UnitedLinux-1.0 or redhat-3 Failed <<<<

What can I do to skip this stage?

My English is very poor. Please execuse me.

In conclusion, I heard that Oracle 10g doesn't work in Linux kernel 2.6.x like FC2, and actually I can install Oracle 10g software but, fail to create database with following error message.

- ORA-27125: unable to create shared memory segment

Of couse, I have done everything about pre-configuration like kernel parameter (ex) shmmax ...) and for compatibility of gcc and glibc , even installed compat-...rpm(s) being included in Redhat Enterprise Linux AS 3.

As we see, it seems that Oracle certified only redhat-2.1, UnitedLinux-1.0 or redhat-3.
But, if you edit the file oraparam.ini, you can pass that step you mentioned.

Open the file and add FC2 OS version name in the end of the line.
I'm sorry but I don't know where we can verity the exact version name.
Either "fedora-core2" or "fedora-2" will work. Else modify a little bit.

$ vi install/oraparam.ini

[Certified Versions]
Linux=redhat-2.1,UnitedLinux-1.0,redhat-3

===>

[Certified Versions]
Linux=redhat-2.1,UnitedLinux-1.0,redhat-3,fedora-core2


Good luck.

Installing Oracle 10g on FeC2

I was able to load Oracle 10g by using the command 'runinstaller -ignoresysprereqs'. the database configuration assistant would ge a shared segment error. click on ignore so the base for the database is created. I had to write the scripts to create the database from the sql worksheet.

i hava another method to install the oracle10g on fedora2, not to do "runInstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs",
but modify the /etc/redhat-release
change the 1st line to :
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon)

then the installation would be ok,

but i found another problem:

when i use dbca or other tools to create the database,the following error occurred:
unable to create shared memory segment

anybody can tell me why?
