I tried to install a package called "compat-libstdc++-33.x86-64
on Ora

Loaded plugins:security
setting up install Process
Nothing to do

however I have created yum.repos.d
I am confused here ..

this means that your yum is unable to locate the missing package or it is already installed

so give a check using

Code:
#rpm -qa | grep compat-libstdc++
or use a proper name convention for the installation as it seems you are trying to give full name of the package which is not required in yum

Code:
#yum install compat-libstdc++

you should not have needed to create anything
the orcale repo should be installed with the required paid for support
the orcale base repo IS PART of the orcale install

with yum you do not include the "x86-64" in the name
the system arch is auto detected and auto set
try this

Code:
su -
yum search compat-libstdc
/* if that fails try  */ 
yum search libstdc
then from that list if it is there
Code:
su -
yum install compat-libstdc

Oracle Enterprise Linux

"[nate@localhost ~]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost nate]# yum search compat-libstdc
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin
This system is not registered with ULN.
ULN support will be disabled.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: InstallMedia. Please verify its path and try again"



From the above results it appears that I have to resister to ULN. To register to ULN, I have to purchase oracle support customer service id number. They are not making it free. In addition, I was under impression that OEL is bundled with all the required packages to install oracle - obviously NOT
see the following example-
[nate@localhost ~]$ rpm -q binutils compat-db control-center gcc gcc-c++ glibc glibc-common gnome-libs libstdc++ libstdc++-devel make pdksh sysstat xscreensaver libaio openmotif21
binutils-2.20.51.0.2-5.11.el6.i686
compat-db-4.6.21-15.el6.i686
control-center-2.28.1-25.el6.i686
package gcc is not installed
package gcc-c++ is not installed
glibc-2.12-1.7.el6.i686
glibc-common-2.12-1.7.el6.i686
package gnome-libs is not installed
libstdc++-4.4.4-13.el6.i686
package libstdc++-devel is not installed
make-3.81-19.el6.i686
package pdksh is not installed
sysstat-9.0.4-11.el6.i686
package xscreensaver is not installed
libaio-0.3.107-10.el6.i686
package openmotif21 is not installed

Q So the some of the required packages are not installed

May I ask you how to get Centos equivalent red hat linux 5 easily ready to install it.

on red hat there is an option to use the cent ropos
and port over a red hat install to cent
BUT
i have no idea if this works on oracles rebuild on the rhel code base
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Migrat...%29|%28rhel%29

Oracle built there version TO RUN THEIR database and to run it very fast
it is optimized FOR the oracle database


for the normal CEntOS 6.2 install
grab the cent6.2 install dvd
reformat the drive and install cent
http://www.centos.org/modules/tinyco...ndex.php?id=30
a USA mirror
"Arctic Region Supercomputing Center"
http://mirrors.arsc.edu/centos/6.2/isos/
"1386"
for 32 bit hardware ( most new IS 64 bit )and i would use that if the hardware will use 64 bit
for 64 bit "x86_64/"
http://mirrors.arsc.edu/centos/6.2/isos/x86_64/
dvd1 --/CentOS-6.2-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso
might need dvd2 ? CentOS-6.2-x86_64-bin-DVD2.iso
