Oracle Client Installtion Error: Expected Value : gcc-3.4.6


Hello!

I'm trying to install Oracle Client 11gR2 and I got this error message:
Package: gcc-3.4.6 - This is a prerequisite condition to test whether the package "gcc-3.4.6" is available on the system.
Expected Value : gcc-3.4.6
Actual Value : missing

Where can I download it this package from and how do I install it.

I have sudo access to the root account.

Thank you in advance,

Abraham

No idea, since you don't tell us what version/distro of Linux you're using. Read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature...wihtout relevant details, no one will be able to tell you anything.

The installation documentation covers a good bit of this...have you followed it?
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/...c.htm#BHCGJCEA

Further, you do realize that Oracle 11 is a commercial, PAY FOR product, right? And if you pay for it, you also get support...have you contacted them???

Yes, I did and I do.
It looks like the latest patch for RHLE v6 has not been applied by the admin.
I tried to download the package but I don't have the account info.. So I emailed my vendor about it.
Thanks!

??? RHEL6...installed without GCC??? VERY hard to fathom.

You don't have to download ANY packages...type in "sudo yum install gcc". Since you're using RHEL6, you're paying for it (RIGHT???) So, you have access to the RHN, which will download and install packages for you, along with resolving any missing dependencies.

Actually, these days you will, indeed, find that "default" installations do not include gcc and other developer/build tools. If you're deploying a system to be a public server, you don't want any L33T H4X0RZ to even have access to the tools that they require to do most mischief. Their kiddie-scripts try to run these tools and ... they're not there.

The correct response is exactly the one that the OP has now taken: either locate and install the necessary packages, or ask the owner/administrator of the system to do so.

I find it rather interesting that Oracle's "client install" procedure requires the use of a language compiler, and tacitly assumes that one is available. To my way of thinking, this should not be required unless you have specifically selected an install-option that includes developer APIs. (And, there should be a procedure for early-detection that the tools are not installed, e.g. when the user is making initial selections in the installer.)

True, but this is an RHEL6 server...those things got shoveled in by default then, at least I've always seen them go on.

True, but there aren't many database servers that are going to be Internet-facing directly...at least, not if they're smart.
