Greetings, I'm getting ready to do an Oracle 10.2 Client only install (either runtime or custom, have not decided yet) on Redhat Enterpise Linux AS4. I seem to have all required packages to include

libaio-0.3.105-2 however it seems we do not have libaio-devel- installed. Is this package absolutely necessary if I am installing client only?

If it is, where do I get it from? The redhat network may not be an option for me as the machine I need to install the client on is remote on an isolated network, and will not create a display out to me. In fact I am planning on doing a command line silent install of the client if I can.

In fact the Universal installer will check and say you what you need additionally.
