Hi duke,

This looks like it is more likely to be an Oracle problem rather than a Linux problem. I don't want to turn you away; and someone might have the answer here; but it might be more productive for you to ask the question on an Oracle newsgroup/board.

BTW, which distro. are you running? You say Linux 7.1. Is that Red Hat, SuSE, other?

Check the path env is setup correctly ie make and ld in the path. If that is fine try this below

To resolve this, add a large chunk of contiguous swap space. The reason for this is that a 'Typical Install' of Oracle requires approximately 200Mb of reservable swap space during installation, and creates a 250+Mb SGA which can be moved to swap space if there is insufficient real memory available.

Hope this helps

There is a patch created by Oracle that fixes the glibc problems seen with the
Error in invoking target install of makefile /xxx/ "

You can ignore these errors during install and then apply the patch.

BTW: I have created an Oracle 8.1.7 install on Redhat 9 page you may also find useful.
