Exclamation Installing Oracle 9i AS 1.0.2.0.0 on PCQ Linux based on Red Hat 7.1


My Hardware :

1 GHz Celeron (Tulatin)
128 MB Ram
Desktop stand alone PC (no network card/no modem)
40 GB HDD - multibooting with Linux having 9 GB and swap is 1 GB at the end of the disk

My Software :

OS : 100% (i.e., Everthing Install ) PCQ Linux based on Red Hat 7.1
Kernel : 2.4.2-2 on an i686

glibc-2.2.2-10
glibc-devel-2.2.2-10
glibc-common-2.2.2-10

compat-glibc-6.2-2.1.3.2.i386
compat-libs-6.2-3.i386
compat-egcs-6.2-1.1.2.14.i386

XFree86 version 4.0.3

What I did :

1. Downloaded JDK 1.3.1 from
http://www.thomasfly.com/Oranux/jdk1...-2.1.3.tar.bz2
and then as root :
bzip2 -dc jdk118_v3-glibc-2.1.3.tar.bz2 | tar xf - -C /usr/local
ln -s /usr/local/jdk118_v3 /usr/local/java

2. Then I created Oracle User Accounts as root:
groupadd dba
groupadd oinstall
useradd -g oinstall -G dba oracle
passwd oracle

3. Then I created Oracle Directories as root:
mkdir /opt/oracle
mkdir /opt/oracle/product
mkdir /opt/oracle/product/9.0.1
chown -R oracle.oinstall /opt/oracle

mkdir /var/opt/oracle
chown oracle.dba /var/opt/oracle
chmod 755 /var/opt/oracle

4. Then as oracle enterd the following in the .bash_profile of the oracle user
export ORACLE_BASE=/opt/oracle
export ORACLE_HOME=/opt/oracle/product/9.0.1
export ORACLE_SID=test
export ORACLE_TERM=xterm
export NLS_LANG=AMERICAN;
export ORA_NLS33=$ORACLE_HOME/ocommon/nls/admin/data
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH

export PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/bin

CLASSPATH=$ORACLE_HOME/JRE:$ORACLE_HOME/jlib:$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/jlib
CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$ORACLE_HOME/network/jlib

5. Rebooted and loged in as oracle (console mode)

6. startx (to start kde)

7. Inserted disc 1 of Oracle 9i AS (it automounted to /mnt/cdrom)

8. Started a terminal and from oracle home directory run the command
/mnt/cdrom/runInstaller

9. Got a message "Initialising Java Virtual Machine from
/tmp/OraInstall/jre/bin/jre Please wait......."

10. NOTHING HAPPENS AFTER THAT. PLEASE HELP ME!

Hi
Thanks for all the encouragement.
I have managed to install Oracle 9i AS 1.0.2.0.0 on Red Hat 6.2 with the same hardware configuration i.e., 128 MB RAM, 1 GB swap, 1 GHz Celeron, etc.,
Now my database is up and running nicely
I think Red Hat 7.1 has some glibc problem with oracle (Someday, I'll sort it out)
Anyway thanks once again.
Best Wishes
ash
