Oracle Installer

I saw this thread on Oracle.

I am having trouble starting the Oracle installer. I get the following error:

runInstaller.sh: line 4: ./runInstaller: cannot execute binary file

There was a time when I could get the installer to load and take me part way through the install and then hang.

Who are you logged in as?
Did you check the permissions on the file?

Hate to tell you but Oracle doesn't install like that.
You can't just run a package and have well for one thing a successful installation,
let alone a functioning database.

There are environment variables to be set. Patches to be downloaded and applied.
Documentation to be read !

The quickest I ever heard was one hour. With good documentation for a Newbie
I'd say at least 4 hours.

Are you still up to it?
For notes: and yes it was a successful install of Oracle 8.1.7 on RedHat 9. All of the steps are outlined here including fixing the links, Net 8 configuration, Oracle Database Configuration Assistant and Web Server.

Have Fun,
alar

Oracle install

Thanks Alar,

I have been through the configuration process. I have set the environment variables, swap space, oracle home, etc.

My problem is launching the installer. When I attempt to run from the command line I get the error mentioned in my previous post.

3. Running the installer
Oracle installer must be run from Xwindows by user <b>oracle</b>.
Start Xwindows and from terminal window mount Oracle 8i CD-ROM and start the installer:

$ /mnt/cdrom/runInstaller

or if you have downloaded linux81701.tar from Oracle, untar it somewhere (e.g. under /u01/817InstallFiles), and then run the installer:

[oracle@frodo 817InstallFiles]$ tar -xvf linux81701.tar
[oracle@frodo Disk1]$ ./runInstaller

Now installer should work and you can install the software. If there is a problem launching installer first check LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5.


Assuming you have ceated user oracle as outlined in the previous step.
