Unhappy LD_ASSUME_KERNEL setting


Installing some Oracle Forms/Reports 10g on my Linux Red Hat Enterprise 3 (ES) box. I have to initialise an environment variable called LD_ASSUME_KERNEL.

THe Oracle Installation guide, states that Kernel version 2.4.21-4 EL is required. Initially I had set the environement variable as follows:


Then I reinstalled with the following setting:


1) Is the environement variable properly set ?
2) Do I need to add the extra EL at the end ? or it doesn't matter ?
3) How can I know what version of the KERNEL, I have installed on my Linux server, to set this variable properly for my Oracle install ?
