Hello I have been always a user of Unix and Oracle throughout my carrier(Bioinformatician)..( Please help me to climb the ladder)

I am trying to understand/learn Oracle ...for which I am trying to install Oracle on my lap top
Red Hat Linux 9.

I am trying to follow the instructions given in a online tutorial.http://www.linuxdevcenter.com/lpt/a/4141

I tried to install the required libraries that he mentions in the tutorial.I am having a tough time though
Especially the "glibc" that he mentions.I tried to install the glibc mentioned from this site
http://mlug.missouri.edu/~jmcintosh/computers/oracle/redhat/9/rpms/

But I am having a problem installing the rpm

rpm -i glibc-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        glibc-common = 2.3.2-27.9.oracle is needed by glibc-2.3.2-27.9.oracle

I think it's saying that the glibc-common rpm needs to be installed first (or at the same time - I'm not familiar with rpm)

glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm is availablle from the site where you downloaded glibc-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm

Oh, and the installing oracle "howto" at http://www.puschitz.com/InstallingOracle9i.html
says that glibc-devel-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm is needed as well; So save going back and forth, it may be worth downloading the other glibc & the ncsd rpms at the same time.

This question should post in the Linux TA, let's see what we can do to help you.

You need to install all the required packages/tools before installing oracle,
print the following installation instructions doc, try to do the installation again:
