Hello members,
Can someone forward me complete steps to install and create oracle database 11g on redhat linux 5 tikanga?
Secondly, I tried to run xclock on this linux system and it gives the following error:
 -ksh: xclock: not found

[1] +  Done(127)               xclock &

Any ideas about this error?

I set up .bash_profile and path info in it looks as below:


ORACLE_TERM=xterm; export ORACLE_TERM
PATH=/usr/sbin:$PATH; export PATH
PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH; export PATH

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
CLASSPATH=$ORACLE_HOME/JRE:$ORACLE_HOME/jlib:$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/jlib; export CLASSPATH


Regards.

Please try "xterm &". It seems xclock is not installed or the path is not set to it.
echo $PATH

for xclock, you need to install xorg-x11-apps
# yum install xorg-x11-apps
# which xclock
/usr/bin/xclock

There is also a 'silent' install option that doesn't require an Xwindows server and client.

The online docs talk about how to do them.

Yesterday I have done the Installation of Oracle 11g r2 on RHEL 5.5. I was a remote machine and I was accessing it from putty so What I have done. Before running the installer, I have installed the VNC SERVER on my linux box and set the password with vncpasswd command and then started vnc server.

Then I have connected that box over the vnc and executed the installer. It worked and I have installed the Oracle 11G without any challenge.
