Question Installation Oracle 9i Developer Suite on Red Hat Linux 7.3

Dear all.

I have installed oracle database 9i on my red hat 7.3 server. During
installation i got one error "error in target installation of make file $ORACLE_HOME/lib/ctx/" . I searched the net for this error
and found that in the $ORACLE_HOME/lib/ctx/" i have to
add $(LDLIBFLAG)dl to the INSO_LINK line. I did that and my installation went on sucessfully. $ORACLE_HOME=/oracle/OraHome

Now i want to install oracle 9i Developer Suite. When i tried to install it , firstly it asked me to enter oracle home so i entered /oracle/Orahome , it gives me error "can not install on existing oracle"
so then i gave "/oracle/developer" as my ORACLE_HOME. Installation went on sucessfully untill while linking at 64% i got error
"error in target installation of make file". again i serached the net and found that in the $ORACLE_HOME/bin/genclntsh file
the variable LD_SELF_CONTAINED="-z defs" has to changed as
LD_SELF_CONTAINED=" ". I did that and went to the error popup and tried retry but the same error is coming again & again . I have doubt that which genclntsh has to be changed, as now i have two
$ORACLE_HOME . one /oracle/OraHome when i installed oracle
and on /oracle/developer when i installed oracle 9i developer suite. what could be the solution .please help ..

thanks in advance.

Unhappy help me too please!!!

I am having this exact same problem. I went through the exact same steps with 9i and 9i DS. I am trying to install on Red Hat 9. Does anybody know how to fix this?

I got this to work. When the error is received, change genclntsh as it says above, that is:


Then the trick is to run the script.


It takes a couple minutes to run and you may get a warning (I did). Finally, it will give a message about a file being created. Click retry in the installer.

Also, make sure you have the a new version of open-motif installed, or you will get a lot more errors. I installed the version on my Red Hat install discs.

justin_bloom, I have tried that exact course of action on several distros but the error always returns.
I finally said 'ignore' to each mk error that came up and the install completed.
Haven't finished testing yet, but at least I can start the forms designer.
