What is a segmentation fault (newbie here:( )


It occurs when I try to install Oracle (client) just after starting runInstaller. I have another thread on that but I just wanted to know what kind of things cause this seg fault (and what's its sysnonym in windows!).

Thanks

Dean Brown

A segmentation fault commonly means that an application is
trying to access memory that doesn't belong to it. It can be
caused by poor programming, or by e.g. a different version
of glibc (other than on your system) being used while it was
compiled ...


Cheers,
Tink

ok this is a win access violation?

So, what do you suggest I do? Complete newbie Q here: Do I have different versions of glibc on my installation (FC2) by default? Or do I have to install another one? Can I have more than one? Or do I need to find specifically which one Oracle needs and install that?

The Oracle install is essentially 'crashing' for some reason and it could be a number of things, tho probably some lib incompatibility, etc. You are going to need help specific to that. Need to find some Oracle README or INSTALL file that details the requirements, or do a searce on the net for specifics.

I quick search suggested it might need the older compatibility libs like compat-libstdc++ which is not unusual for binary software - tho in the case I was looking at they were talking the sever...

Try search for

install oracle fedora

or something. I got a link to an article about the server at:
