GLIBC_2.0 Error When installing Oracle 8i OR 9i - Possibly related to JRE 1.1.8


Hi,

I've recently installer Mandrake 10 and am very happy with its performance over my previous system (Red Hat 8). I have successfully installed Macromedia Jrun on my system and have now turned my attention to Oracle. I should warn you that although I am familiar with updating *nix servers remotely and can handle the file structure, etc I am still a bit of linux newbie when it comes to installing programs, etc.

I downloaded 8i but it seemed too buggy for me to even try and install. When running the runInstaller file it didn't even open the installer window, but instead gave me this error:
Code:
GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference (libzip.so)
I am now trying to install 9i and although initially everything has gone well, when I get to the end of the server installation I am presented with the same error as with 8i:
Code:
GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference (libzip.so)
I have gone into rpmdrake and installed everything in sight related to GLIBC but to no avail. The libzip.so referenced is part of the bundled JRE 1.1.8 which Oracle 8i/9i both insist on using. Because this is so old is Mandrake 10 having a problem with it? Has anyone experienced anything similar? Is there anyway around it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

John Levermore

The error you posted is a link error associated with compilers.
Is your version of gcc correctly installed?

(glibc is generated by gcc).

Hi,

I have version 3.3.2 of gcc freshly (cleanly) installed using rpmdrake. As for glibc itself I have 2.3.3.

Everything to do with this appears to be running fine, apart from in the context of installing Oracle!

Cheers,

John

Have you got the kernel source installed?

Also I saw this several times as a solution to the same problem. At a terminal type;

export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1

Try upgrading your jvm as well.

I don't believe I have the kernel source - would I need it?

As for "export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1" - it works like a dream with 8i as far as I can tell!! How can I make this permanent rather than just a one-session only variable? I'm a newbie, so I'd really appreciate step-by-step instructions.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers,

John

Anything that compiles needs the headers from the source package which comes as an rpm.

As for the export thing, add it to the end or your .bashrc file, which is in your home directory OR, for multiuser use, add it to the end of the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local

These are just plain text files read by the system at startup and login. To edit the rc.local you will need to be root.
At a terminal type
su
enter your password then type
kwrite.
Open the the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local then add the line at the end.
