i'm running Red-Hat Enterprise Server 3

it had its own uncompression application (like winzip).

do you know of any other quick and easy tools i can use rather in ES3?

you need to install this rpm compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.122

find it on the cd and install it

# rpm -ivh compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.122.rpm

surya_prabhakarCommented:
if you have rhel cd's get the file from the cd that is the file name I gave you .
that is the library missing on your system which is required by oracle .  

this is the file compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.122.rpm

check this.

if i login in as 'root' and i run the 'runInstaller.sh' it basically gives this:

[root@localhost root]# sh runInstaller
[]

and the cursor just sits and blinks on where '[]' is (on the second line)

any clues???

You will need a couple of extra patches, etc. to get Oracle working on RHEL3. Despite promising binary compatibility within a RHEL version, the changes to the kernel threading solution made this impossible. While there is a simple solution to most problems (LD_ASSUME_KERNEL), you do need some patches from Oracle.

The best document I have found describing Oracle installs is at http://www.puschitz.com/InstallingOracle9i.shtml

Also, if you are setting LD_ASSUME_KERNEL, PLEASE, PLEASE always remember to set RPM_FORCE_NPTL=1 in your environment to keep your RPM database safe :)

yeah i did find that yesterday as well thanks.

the only problem is that i cant find the patches for download anywhere.

i got so anoid, i have installed SuseES over it and deleted RHES3 os

thanks for the help anyway man.

i will accept your answer, but may need help with the SuseES-Oracle install

i will let you know how it goes

You're quite likely to need the same patches for SLES that you do for RHEL. The problem is that with Oracle, you have to be a metalink subsriber (which costs) to get patches :(
