runInstaller problem for installing Oracle 8i in Linux


Hi,
Help me.

I use RH Linux 7.3 and want to install Oracle 8i. I have Oracle 8i for linux, which is downloaded. The downloaded file linux81701.tar has been untarred. Disk1 directory contains runInstaller, which is used to start installation.

$cd /Disk1
$./runInstaller

After running the above command, the Konsole give the following message:
:bad Interpreter: No such file or directory

Pls, note that I have configured some pre-installation tasks.

Pls, give me some suggetions.

Thanking you.

Does runInstaller show up in the output for ls? I don't recall anything special about the installation other than appropriate permissions to write to the install directories.

Hi stickman.
Yes, output of ls show runInstaller.

After executing the statement
$ ./runInstaller

the following error message is shown.
: bad Interpreter: No such file or directory

Thanks

First make sure that you have removed java from your path, and any CLASSPATH variable that might be set

export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 and make sure to install the compat-glibc, compat-libc and compat-egcs and run the env script that those install

then run the runInstaller

Oracle8i was created with glibc 2.1, and as of Red Hat 7.0, Red Hat moved to glibc 2.2. Red Hat has several compatability packages on the distro cd's but the three you need for Oracle are compat-glibc, compat-libc and compat-egcs. Install them before starting the install

These pacages install libraries into /usr/i386-glibc21-linux/ and there is a shell script in /usr/i386-glibc21-linux/bin run it before starting the installer

if there is a java binary in the path statement, ie `which java' returnes /usr/local/bin or something, remove that dir from the path statement. the installer uses Oracles own JDK and will die if it finds another. Also unset any CLASSPATH that might be set before running the installer.

Also, there is a stubs-glibc21 patch from oracle that has to be installed before anythings going to work, so get it and follow its instructions, also as a side note, you have to issue the command $ORACLE_HOME/bin/relink all after installing the stubs patch for a new install

then export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL-2.2.5 and you can now run the installer

also, DO NOT create a database during the install. you cant create a database until the stubs patch is installed and everything is relinked. so do a Custom install, because you dont have the choice of running one or not during a typical install.

BTW Red Hat 7.1 is the last technically supported version from Red Hat, 7.2, 7.3 and 8.0 arnt supported for 8i, or 9i as far as i know. I you have run up2date, you may not be able to install 8i on 7.3. Last time i tried it, it was on a default 7.3 install, 8i was the first thing i had installed.

sbrown - will this same solution work for RHL9 and 9i? I am getting all kinds of JRE and GLIBC errors. I am currently looking for the compat files on the install CD's but can't find them - any words of assistance?
Thanks again,
Mark
