Installation of Oracle 10g 64 bit on OpenSuSE 10.2

Hello,

I have successfully installed oracle 10.2.0.1 64 bit on open SuSE 10.2 64 bit. Installation is rather simple - you would have installer in graphical mode.

Please download instructions from http://ftp.novell.com/partners/oracl...troduction.pdf


1. Get Oracle database and openSuSE 10.2
2. Install openSuSE with C/C++ development - for details see 10gR2_openSUSE102_introduction.pdf.
3. Follow insctructions from 10gR2_openSUSE102_introduction.pdf. Instead of installing orarun.rpm, download orarun-1.9-21.11.x86_64.rpm from
ftp://ftp.novell.com/partners/oracle/sles-10

4. Unpack orarun-1.9-21.11.x86_64.rpm to temporary directory:
cd /tmp
mkdir orarun
cd orarun
rpm2cpio orarun-1.9-21.11.x86_64.rpm |cpio -i --make-directories
5. Copy extracted files to proper directories (omit /usr/bin directory and its content). Make sure copied files would be accessible by oracle user (ownership and rights).
6. Follow the rest of installation steps - add user oracle etc.

Good luck

32 runtime

Oracle installer needs 32 bit runtime - without it, it won't run. That's a common issue, I just thought Novell mentioned in their instructions that you need to install 32 runtime libraries. Oracle DB itself uses 64 bit libraries, but installer don't.

Only thing you have to do is to check 32 bit runtime libraries as included option during installation of SuSE.

I believe, I've got your point.
Thank you very much.

5. Copy extracted files to proper directories (omit /usr/bin directory and its content). Make sure copied files would be accessible by oracle user (ownership and rights).
you can also install the 64-bit version of orarun using 'rpm -i --ignorearch --excludepath=/usr/bin orarun-1.9-21.11.x86_64.rpm' (see the README file in the download directory on Novell's site for the '--ignorearch' bit, and the man-page of rpm for the '--excludepath'-bit).

The advantage of this approach: the oracle user and oinstall/dba groups get created (which doesn't work if you use the cpio method).

Just run under /tmp :-
rpm2cpio orarun-1.9-21.11.x86_64.rpm |cpio -i --make-directories
You will understand what mar_456 means when look at
/tmp/usr/local/bin for example

Thanks, but
I noticed the folders created under tmp...
I didn't understand what he mean by "copy extracted files to proper directories"?
should I copy files under /tmp/orainst/etc/unit.d to /etc/unit.d ?
Or should I create a new folder, copy all under /tmp/orainst to this new place and make symbolic links ?
