Question Anyone running Oracle9i 9.2.0.x.x?


I was hoping I could install this on a stock distro, but it ain't happening. If you have it up & running, please tell me what distr you're using. Thanks.

I have a test instance running on Gentoo and Red Hat 8 instances.

There are 2 glitches in the Oracle Install, that will time out, but outside of those things it works fine.

I have it up and running on RH9. I used http://www.oracle-base.com/Articles/...nOnRedHat9.asp to get it going.

We use Oracle 9i in production both 9iDB and 9iAS. 9iDB will install without absolutely any issues on Red Hat 7.1 (it was originally certified against this distro.). I have installed it on Red Hat 9 but requires some kludging to do so. We are running system with 1GIG of RAM at this point without problems.

9iAS installation is best on Red Hat Advanced Server 2.1 or the new 3.0 or on Suse's Enterprise version. You will need 1.5GIG of RAM to install the mid-tier and 500MB for infrastructure. Would recommend at least 4GIG if on one machine. There are many memory leaks and it requires tons of patching.

Regards,

Uriel

I really wish I could say with confidence Linux is ready for prime time because I want it to be my preferred platform. It's getting better, but still take too much work (to install (re: hardware drivers) for this software guy w/26 years under my belt. I ordered a Dell workstation with RH9 installed because my focus has to be on Oracle.
