    libstdc++-3.3.4-11.i586.rpm \

    Installing Oracle Database 10g (32-bit) on Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) and on SUSE

    According to Oracle's docs:
    Operating System: Oracle9i Release 1 (9.0.1) is certified on SuSe 7.1, Kernel 2.4.4 and the operating system library glibc 2.2.
    Oracle9i release 2 ( is certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

    SO I would highly recommend to install Oracle either on SuSE 7.1 or on RH EL 4 or on CentOS 4 (that is almost RHEL 4).
    Oracle is quite serious application and it would be better if you satisfy their's requirements. Obviously it's possible to do on SUSE 9,
    but this configuration is NOT SUPPORTED by Oracle.
