Missing RPMs - Oracle 10g R2 on RHEL5 64-bit.


Hello everyone,

I am new to Linux and this forum so I hope you'll be patient if my question is a) tedious or b) newbie.

Essentially I am migrating an asset management database onto 64-bit architecture in a new hosting environment and a RHEL5 environment has been built. I have tried to install Oracle 10g R2 (and have thoroughly ascertained the definitive list of RPMs that it says are mandatory in the guide) however using ldd on the generated log file tells me that some things are still missing. Namely:

libmlib_image.so
libjvm.so
libXtst.so.6
libjava.so

I have found these on several RPM sites but cannot find any that appear to have been packaged for RHEL5 so my question really is this. Is it ok to use versions of these packages that have been compiled for other distributions of Linux - such as Mandrive, Centos, SuSE - as I cannot move forward without these files but obviously don't want to compromise the stability of my build? I have tried to get them from RHN using Yum but it doesn't appear to find them in the repositories.

Any help given would be immensely appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

Giles Klech

Since you're using RHEL5, you should be able to contact RedHat support, and they'll be able to tell you where to get what you need, for your installation.

Why I need to contact RedHat support in this case?

Because that is what you are paying for.

I agree with lazlow, and to expand on that a bit, if the object is to migrate things from one architecture to another, RedHat can certainly help out. If you haven't paid for RHEL support, you should really install CentOS instead, though. Then you'll be running on an 'unsupported' configuration, as far as Oracle is concerned, but since you don't have access to all the RedHat goodies without a 'subscription', you're still in that same position.....

But why do you ask, since this isn't your thread??
