install Oracle 12c on linux (preferably Ubuntu)


Hello,

I was trying to install Oracle 12c on Ubuntu 16.04 but I got "unable to locate ... package" error.

Here is what I tried: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1114...844018_1114715

I also tried all suggestion from there but I finished being more confused.

Can anyone help me or just provide a vm with already installed Oracle 12c on Ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04?

Thank you,
Mikcutu.

As far as I know (but I never tried it) Oracle is meant for rpm-based distributions of Linux, not Debian-based ones like Ubuntu. That's why there is no .deb version either.
It tries to do its dependency checking from the rpm database in /var/lib/rpm, so it should work with RHEL, Oracle Linux (of course) or i.e. CentOS.

It probably is possible to install it with "no dependencies checks" (the --nodeps in rpm) or whatever is the equivalent in Ubuntu, but you first will have to install ALL of its dependent packages by hand.
But, as I said, I'm not all that familiar with .deb distributions.

Oracle is also not free...are you paying for it? Did you read the installation guides and what's required and supported?
https://docs.oracle.com/en/database/...C-C7319ED934F0

Ubuntu won't work and if it does, I wouldn't trust it to be stable.

if you really MUST USE "Oracle 12c" and not mariaDB then install the database on a supported OS

oracle's linux ( non free) or on Centos

Obviously see post #4 #3 or #2. But anyway if you need help please post exact information what did you try, what did you expect and what's happened. Posting

There are a number of places that offer prebuild VM's. Not sure you can get Oracle on them possible due to licensing. (not sure even)

Last time I did look you could get a VM with Oracle's unbreakable linux with Oracle database on it if you registered. It would seem to me to be the most secure option as any vm from online sources may not be fully trusted.

Concurring with the others with this additional thought: Your best source for help installing Oracle12 on Ubuntu is Oracle.
