Installing Oracle 10g on Solaris 10 x86 32-bit

Posted on 2006-05-27

I have Solaris 10 x86 runs as guest OS on VMWare server (host OS is WinXP Pro). My objective is to install Oracle database on the guest OS, but I'm not sure which release of Oracle database will be compatible for the specified requirement.

In Solaris, if I run this command from command line: /usr/bin/isainfo -kv
and it will output: 32-bit i386 kernel modules.

Now my question, is Oracle Database 10g Release 1 ( for Solaris x86 compatible with Solaris 10 x86 (32-bit)? if not, what will be the compatible version?

I would appreciate any helpful comments anyone might have.
