GLIBC_2.0 Error When installing Oracle 8i OR 9i - Possibly related to JRE 1.1.8
 
Hi,

I am attempting to installer oracle on my newly installed Mandrake 10 system. I have successfully installed Macromedia Jrun on my system and have now turned my attention to Oracle. I should warn you that although I am familiar with updating *nix servers remotely and can handle the file structure, etc I am still a bit of linux newbie when it comes to installing programs, etc.

I downloaded 8i but it seemed too buggy for me to even try and install. When running the runInstaller file it didn't even open the installer window, but instead gave me this error:
Code:

GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference (libzip.so)
I am now trying to install 9i and although initially everything has gone well, when I get to the end of the server installation I am presented with the same error as with 8i:
Code:

GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference (libzip.so)
I have gone into rpmdrake and installed everything in sight related to GLIBC but to no avail. The libzip.so referenced is part of the bundled JRE 1.1.8 which Oracle 8i/9i both insist on using. Because this is so old is Mandrake 10 having a problem with it? Has anyone experienced anything similar? Is there anyway around it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

John Levermore

My friend,
installing oracle on linux is not simple (this is not to discourage you) . Oracle has a specific linux vendor they go with - SuSE and RedHat.
It is not expected to work with Mandrake out of the box.

What you are seeing below are the glibc errors. Oracle & DB2 and now sybase are extreeeeeeeeeemly nit-picky about the version of glibc. If you want to have a trouble free installation, go with one of Redhat ES or SuSE. You will also get support.

Best for you is:
1. download oracle 10g
2. install it under MDK 10 CE.

good luck and hope this is not too late.
