I saw that 8.1.7 was certified for RH 7.0. So I downloaded this version and tried installing it. It also came with a patch that had to be applied after installation.
The installation went alright. In the sense, the system didn't crash or hang up. It ran the net8 configuration assistant and I even managed to create one listener. Now I have a problem....Iam not able to run netca or netasst(the net8 config tools) after the installation. It says that oracle.java.netca application or class not found.... I cudn't get the instance started with the lsnrctl start command. It also threw up a lot of errors like message not set for listener or something like that( I can give you the exact details if you think it wud be useful). And notwithstanding all this I tried creating the database....and it was struck in it's first step itself and the progress bar was at 0% for more than an hour( i have 250 mb on duron 750) and I decided to kill the DB creation.
Ok. Here is what I think....The installation is probably clean but Iam not sure what to do after the installation. I have installed it on a windows 2000/nt before and everything was almost intuitive. Iam not sure if I need to do anything extra for linux, after the installation, to get my listener running and to create a new database...
Any suggestions? I am planning to give it a try to get the listener running today, if not am going to reinstall the whole thing today
