I have installed Oracle Enterprise Linux successfully using VMWare. I followed Oracle's installation guidelines found at: http://www.oracle.com/technology/pub/articles/smiley_10gdb_install.html
However, when I try and install Oracle 10g, it fails. It says something a long the lines of "supported operating systems are red hat 4.... etc ".
Ive also tried installed using ./runInstaller -ignoresysprereqs However this fails too. It hangs at java 866.
I followed the instructions when installing Linux and enabled all the necessary packages mentioned in Oracle's instructions during installation, however after install, I checked to see if the packages were installed and some were not installed. The following packages were not installed:
2. Gnome libs
Are these packages required? If so, how do I now install them?
I changed the necessary kernal parameters, which were:
kernel.shmall = 2097152
kernel.shmmax = 536870912
kernel.shmmni = 4096
kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 128
fs.file-max = 65536
ge = 1024 65000
What am I doing wrong?
