Installing Oracle Internet Directory on RHEL 5

I have Oracle Enterprise Edition 11g installed on an Intel Xeon box running RHEL 5.  I need to do a proof-of-concept security test on my Oracle database with enterprise users instead of database users.  Although I would eventually like to use OpenLDAP as my LDAP directory service, I am perfectly content to use Oracle Internet Directory (OiD) as the LDAP directory for my initial proof-of-concept.  [And, it seems that I may need to use OiD for the enterprise user security even if I use OpenLDAP as the directory service down the road.]  From my research, it seems that the only way to get the latest version of OiD is by installing Oracle Identity Management 10g (, which includes Application Server.  I downloaded the x86 Linux version of Identity Management 10g from the following site [http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/htdocs/101401.html].  Unfortunately, when I tried to install the software, I found that it is not supported for RHEL 5 [just RHEL 4].

Am I missing something?  Surely, there must be a way to install Oracle Internet Directory on RHEL 5.  Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Normally you have to use (and to install) old versions of gcc* stuff.
Read the prerequisites in the installation manual and especially
how to set the kernel parameters and the packages.
Check all needed packages from the list of the documentation.

Check out patch #7391242 for the OIM
