Smile Newbie linux software installation


Hi all,

May i know if package requirement for any software exists? (i.e.: package dependence)
Note that there is done by package management software like apt-get, yum etc.

In other words, the package do not exists that may cause installation failure?

Am i right?

Thanks

Yes. Do you have a specific problem installing something?

Yes, currently, my colleague asks me to install Oracle 12c in Redhat7 (not RHEL),
of which there are alot of package and kernel dependences on newer version,
(i.e. libstdc++33.3, binutils, GCCXX_3.4.5)
It is to verifying the basic concept of Linux Install before i kick into troubleshooting.

Thanks for you reply.

Hi,

you colleague has asked you to perform a ridiculous task. Do no even try. What is the bigger picture here? What are you ultimately trying to achieve?

Hi,

thanks for your reply,

He just want to tryout some experimental stuff before it is kicking into production.
It is a small-scale CRUD application, logging the transaction.
I may advice him to switching to RHEL7.

thanks

Hi,

unless you are paying for support from Red Hat you shouldn't be using RHEL either.

"Redhat7 (not RHEL)" is probably Redhat 7.0 Guinness, year 2001.

Sure, but RHEL7 is explicitly mentioned as an alternative in post #5.
