Oracle 10g installation on OEL 4.5


Hi to all ;

Installing OEL but shows actual result was redhat-4

Today I am installing oracle 10g on Enterprise linux 4.5 . I am having some problem while running OUI.
Having much confusion with Oracle installation .....

See Error message shows
========================
Checking operating system requirements ...
Expected result: One of redhat-3,redhat-4,SuSE-9,asianux-1,asianux-2
Actual Result: redhat-4
Check complete. The overall result of this check is: Passed

Installing OEL but shows actual result was redhat-4


Checking for libaio-0.3.96; found Not found. Failed <<<<
Checking for shmmni=4096; found shmmni=-2147483648. Failed <<<<
Checking for libaio-0.3.96; found Not found. Failed <<<<
Check complete. The overall result of this check is: Failed <<<<

My question is

1) by default OEL having all required RPM's but why it requires LIBAIO.
2) Installing OEL but shows actual result was redhat-4


Thanks and Regards
Thiyagusham.G

1)Have you installed libaio rpm ???? which is a prerequsite pkg for oracle.

check here : http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/...-on-rhel-4.php


2)OEL - Oracle enterprise Linux is a distribution based on Redhat Enterprise Linux.

So before installing it just checks One of these is matched or not : redhat-3,redhat-4,SuSE-9,asianux-1,asianux-2

Check what is the in the file :

Quote:
/etc/redhat-release

Thanks for your reply. I am not expert with Linux. Now i am learning. I think my senior didn't install any packages but he done oracle installation on Enterprise Linux. Again i have to mention Checking for shmmni=4096; found shmmni=-2147483648. Failed <<<<

Thanks and Regards

shmmni - nummber of shared memory identifier in your system kernel( Here the amount of shmmni required for Oracle installation are not found in your system)

So before installation you have to check the prerequisites like :which packages(rpm) to be installed, setting kernel parameters.

As you are new to linux, you should follow step by step guide for Oracle installation and have a look at the following link:

Just i am clearly saying installation oracle on OEL 4.5 not on REDHAT LINUX. YOUR link shows RHEL. Already i done oracle installation on Redhat linux successfully.
My biggest doubt is by default no need to install packages in OEL. IF i follow your link kernel values are slightly changed for few parameters. Can u provide any links ORACLE 10g on OEL4.5 version (not on REDHAT). Help me !

Thanks in advance

It may be OEL or RHEL the pkg requirement, the kernel parameters are almost same for same versions. You can google for a lot of document.
Your doubt is no need to install packages, but if you will not install required packages, you will always get failed message during installation.



you can check here.

I have two doubts. I checked required rpm's to install oracle.
command was rpm -qa.

Linux shows lot of RPM's. but i didn't install single package while installing oracle.
Linux throws only for " Checking for libaio-0.3.96; found Not found. Failed <<<<
" may i know the specific reason ???? what about command (rpm -qa) listed rpm's ????



I have small doubt to know about my linux.

======================================================================================

root@dhcppc1 ~]# uname -mrs
Linux 2.6.9-42.0.0.0.1.ELsmp i686

======================================================================================

root@dhcppc1 ~]# lsb_release -a
LSB Version: :core-3.0-ia32:core-3.0-noarch:graphics-3.0-ia32:graphics-3.0-noarch
Distributor ID: EnterpriseEnterpriseAS
Description: Enterprise Linux Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (October Update 4)
Release: 4
Codename: OctoberUpdate4

========================================================================================

root@dhcppc1 ~]# cat /etc/*-release
Enterprise Linux Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (October Update 4)
Enterprise Linux Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (October Update 4)

I never seen the word ORACLE ENTERPRISE LINUX.
ENTERPRISE LINUX = ORACLE ENTERPRISE LINUX ..... is it ????
Version also 4. what about version 4.5 ?????

Thanks .....

1 - running the command

Quote:
rpm -qa
will return all the rpms installed in the system.

To check any particular package is installed or not you have to add the package name, like

Quote:
rpm -qa libaio
or check for multiple packages add their names:

Quote:
rpm -qa libaio gcc
2 - The version you have is based on Redhat Enterprise linux Advanced Server 4 ( RHEL AS 4 )

CantOS linux, Scientific Linux - all these popular distributions are based on RHEL, in their /etc/redhat-release file you will get written Redhat Enterprise Linux.

You are using pretty old version of linux kernel ( 2.6.9-42 ) , update it or use any latest Version.

3 - You have version 4.4 not 4.5 as it's saying release 4 update 4.

there is a useful rpm repository site:

Quote:
rpm.pbone.net
YOu have OEL, bcoz in OEL, it generally says only Enterprise linux.

The required rpms are listed on the docs.

you have to search there for packages based on your distribution and you will get them one by one ,download and install.



you can also install the yum repositories from rpm.pbone.net or from rpmforge. So that you can install them by your yum from internet , if you have active nternet connection.

Those were the wonderful sites where I get almost all packages since last 5 years.

Look in the oracle repository for a package called oracle-validated. It will pull all the dependencies and will set some basic settings. You will have to adjust the settings for your environment, but a package from Oracle already exists to automate some of the steps that you are trying.

Also metalink has several papers on what needs to be installed for you to be able to setup Oracle DB on a host.

I know OEL 5.x and 6.x both include a file /etc/oracle-release that will tell you the version you are running. The /etc/redhat-release is a hold over from RH.

Sorry for troubling you. I just started to install oracle on linux but i need to learn new things to work with LINUX.
Everytime i check with google before posting regarding my questions.
However my questions are

========================================================================

List all installed packages using rpm under Linux


# rpm -qa

** using RPM we can install packages ** am i right ????

========================================================================

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT PACKAGE


# rpm -qi iptables

** here iptable is one of the package ** am i right ????

Quote:
Name : iptables Relocations: /usr
Version : 1.2.11 Vendor: (none)
Release : 3.1.RHEL4 Build Date: Sat 07 Oct 2006 02:41:29 PM IST

Signature : DSA/SHA1, Tue 10 Oct 2006 06:53:36 AM IST, Key ID 2e2bcdbcb38a8516
URL : http://www.netfilter.org/
Summary : Tools for managing Linux kernel packet filtering capabilities.
Description :
The iptables utility controls the network packet filtering code in the
Linux kernel. If you need to set up firewalls and/or IP masquerading,
you should install this package.
=========================================================================

List of package file
# rpm -ql iptables

package files ?????

lib/iptables/libipt_pkttype.so
/lib/iptables/libipt_realm.so
/lib/iptables/libipt_recent.so
/lib/iptables/libipt_rpc.so
/lib/iptables/libipt_sctp.so
/lib/iptables/libipt_standard.so
/lib/iptables/libipt_state.so
/lib/iptables/libipt_tcp.so
/lib/iptables/libipt_tcpmss.so

/usr/share/man/man8/iptables-restore.8.gz
/usr/share/man/man8/iptables-save.8.gz
/usr/share/man/man8/iptables.8.gz

========================================================================================

I am expecting better clarity about two different output " iptables " --> i mentioned for example

# rpm -qi iptables
# rpm -ql iptables

Some clear Explanations (just to work as ORACLE DBA level)
========================

** Package
** PAckage file
** Rpm's


Thanks
