Question libaio-0.3.96 required to install Oracle 10g

I am trying to install Oracle 10g Release 2 onto my Cent OS, which is equivalent to Red Hat 3.4.6-3 but got one error and would like to seek an assistance.

The error is that Operating System package requirement failed because libaio-0.3.96 is missing. I went to the link below, but don't see 'libaio-0.3.96' although libaio-0.3.96-3, 5, 6, 7 are available.

I tried to install libaio-0.3.96-3, but got an error message below.
'Source RPM

The file "/home/oracle/Desktop/libaio-0.3.96-3.src.rpm" is a source RPM which cannot be installed with system-config-packages.'

Can anyone please assist?

You're trying to install a source rpm, try this instead.

I don't know which version of CentOS you are using. But if I remember well i'm running O9i on Red Hat 3.4.x and when i was testing O10g installation i had to do it on Red Hat 4. So I used a CentOS equivalent of that version.
Otherwise maybe you can make a soft link to that library.

Thank you for your reply to both of you !!!
I found out that Cent OS that I had was not compatible with Oracle 10g. I installed OEL4 and used the link that Bathory provided to install libaio. I was able to install Oracle 10g successfully.


installation, oracle
