loading oracle 10.1.0.3 for O.S.(Linux ES4 (Red Hat Enterprise Edition))


Hello everybody,
While trying to load Oracle 10.1.0.3 for the OS Version := Linux ES4 (Red Hat Enterprise Edition)
I am getting an error!
Can any one please suggest whether I can actually load this version of oracle for this O.S.

A prompt reply will be very much appreciated from anyone.

Thanks,
Rohit

Yes it is possible. You don't say what error you were getting so I suggest looking through the docs at http://www.puschitz.com/ and then posting any specific questions (along with any errors) here.

Hello everyone,

Sorry last time I did not give the detailed error message so here it is now:

Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

Checking installer requirements...

Checking operating system version: must be redhat-3, SuSE-9, SuSE-8 or
UnitedLinux-1.0
Failed <<<<

Exiting Oracle Universal Installer, log for this session can be found at
/tmp/OraInstall2005-06-22_07-57-51AM/installActions2005-06-22_07-57-51AM.log
[oracle@host Disk1]$


hope this will help now!

Expecting a prompt reply as always!

Thanks & Regards,

Rohit

I'd contact Oracle, since the version you have is looking for the versions it specified and doesn't recognize RHEL4.

As the message says, there are only four supported Linuxes, and RHEL4 is not supported. So I doubt Oracle will help you. But you can ignore the restriction; I installed on Ubuntu quite OK.

I assume you ran database/runInstaller. Change the following line in database/install/oraparam.ini; in my case with Oracle 10.2.0.1.0 it was line 39.
Code:
< Linux=redhat-3,SuSE-9,redhat-4,UnitedLinux-1.0,asianux-1,asianux-2
---
> Linux=
The installer will go further, and then probably fail some of the prerequisite checks, which you can check off manually. I assume Oracle won't perform quite as fast if you give it, e.g., much less swap space than it wants, but it's running OK.

Just to clarify Oracle Database server 10.1.0.3 is supported on Red Hat ES 4 despite what the installer says !
