Simply saying, you need to install compat-* libraries.

Install the Java development kit:

# Make the bin file executable
chmod u+x j2sdk-1_3_1_09-linux-i586.rpm.bin
# Run the bin file. Agree to the terms and conditions.
./j2sdk-1_3_1_09-linux-i586.rpm.bin
# Install the RPM file.
rpm -ivh jdk-1.3.1_09.i586.rpm

im sure ive got JDK installed... where do i check if it is installed and is it installed according to the above 8 lines?

Don't use knife, boddy! Think 'bout parents :-)))
I think you need to install compat libraries 'cause the error is GLIBC.

Look at docs
# From Fedora Core 2

rpm -Uvh compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.126.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh compat-libstdc++-devel-7.3-2.96.126.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.126.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh compat-gcc-c++-7.3-2.96.126.i386.rpm

Second, you need to set some veriables at you .bash_profile file of the account you supposed to run Oracle.

im logged in as root.

do i need to log in as ´oracle´ to edit the file?

and

where can this file be found?
0
 
marxyCommented:
yes. u should log in as a user u're planning to run database.
and edit its .bash_profile file as described at the documentation above.

YOU ARE BEYOND A LEGEND DUDE!!!!!

the install started running fine.

only issue is that its now prompting me for root permission to certain folders etc. how do i work around the permission issues?

marxyCommented:
What exactly did it ask?
0
 
minichickenAuthor Commented:
well it says that i dont have permission to install a perticular componant of the DB....

do you think it will be ok for me to install it logged in as another user?
0
 
marxyCommented:
No. You have to install database as a user who will start it.

minichickenAuthor Commented:
well hereś the error:

ERROR: you do not have sufficient provelages to write to the specified path. in Componant Database configuration assistant 9.2.0.1.0 installation cannot continue.

minichickenAuthor Commented:
there are obviously access rights that the ´oracle´ user needs that i havent given.

i´ll accept your answer, thanks again dude. and open another for the permission errors.
