Question Linux and Oracle Jargon!


After weeks trying to install Oracle 10g in Fedora 7 not successfull.But fedora 7 install my machine without any trouble.So i try to install fedora 3 in my machine inorder to install oracle.I can't install Fedora 3 in my machine because i have SATA drive.Still no luck install fedora 3 in my machine.Is there anyway to install Fedora 3 which support SATA drive?( Guide lines)

Now i am considering install Red Hat3/4 inorder to install Oracle 10g.My question is there any red hat version (Which support oracle10g as well) which support SATA drive?

You might want to try CentOS it's a RedHat Enterprise Linux clone and works well with Oracle 10g.

You should check the Oracle documentation for any specific requirements first (may save a lot of headaches later)

Smile you can try Enterprise Linux from

you can try Oracle Enterprise Linux
EL4 update 4
EL4 update 5

download from

and i know there is a Oracle Validated Configuration RPM can save time.

When it is installed, the Oracle Validated Configuration RPM sets and verifies system parameters based on recommendations from the Oracle Validated Configurations program, and installs any additional packages needed for installing Oracle Clusterware and Oracle Database. It also updates sysctl.conf settings, system startup parameters, user limits, and driver parameters to values extensive testing shows will provide better performance.

If your Linux distribution is Oracle Enterprise Linux, or Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and you are an Unbreakable Linux customer, then you can complete most preinstallation configuration tasks by using the Oracle Validated Configurations Setup RPM, available from the Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN).

hope this link is usefull to you
