Unhappy Permission Denied


Hello,


I tried to apply a Oracle Patch.
When I ran the patch, I got the following message:

bash: -- ............: permission denied

1) What exactly does the permission denied mean ?
2) Has the patch been applied or not ?

The patch is suppose to modify the ld.so file.
There are 3 files: (ld.so.conf, ld.so.cache, ld.so.preload). I am not sure which file should be modified ??
I get the impression that the patch was not applied. From the root user, I switched to the oracle user.

Permissions problem maybe? Did you give +x permissions to that file?

It means exactly what it says, you don't have enough rights to install that patch. You may need to do it as root or give execution permissions as mentioned above.

Unhappy Changing File Permissions

Hello,

The patch says that it modifies the ld.so file.
Looking through the /etc folder, I have 3 variations of that file.

1) Will running: chmod +x ld.so... on all 3 files do the job ?

You should only have to give the execute permission to what you're trying to install, and have rights to modify the files it effects.

sudo, or do it as root, and give +x to the file.

Unhappy libcwait + ld File Roles

Hello,

The patch is suppose to append/modify the following files:

/etc/libcwait.so
/etc/ld.so

As I have said, I have 3 variations of the file:

ld.so.cache
ld.so.conf
ld.so.preload

1) What is the role of these files ?

man ld.so

It gives you a pretty good list of what each does under "Files"
