Hi Jack, Have a read of Werner Puschitz's site: http://www.puschitz.com/InstallingOracle10g.shtml I've found it invaluable in the past installing Oracle on RHEL 3 x86 as it nicely sums up all the little bugs and glitches - far better than combing through online doco and Metalink!
Summary: How do I install 22.214.171.124 64bit on RHEL 4 x86_64? I've done it successfully a bunch on RHEL 3 x86_64.
Details: We have new IBM Blade Servers with the 64bit Opteron CPUs. Our server guys have installed RHEL 4 x86_64 with the 32bit libs included in that installation.
I'm trying to install 126.96.36.199 64bit, then patch to 188.8.131.52 before creating new databases. The 184.108.40.206 install fails with the linking of ExtProc32. What am I missing? Also, is there a 9i R2 doc for RHEL 4 x86_64? I can't find it, though the one for RHEL 3 x86_64 is there.
Previously, we had installed these two Oracle rpms mentioned in the RHEL 4 x86 install docs: compat-oracle-rhel4-1.0-5.i386.rpm compat-libcwait-2.1-1.i386.rpm The 220.127.116.11 install was successful, as well as the patch to 18.104.22.168. However, we got the error below doing just about any OS command, like ls, also, it appeared hundreds of times in the make.log. object '/usr/lib/libcwait.so' from /etc/ld.so.preload cannot be preloaded: ignored. So we removed the two rpms listed above, since we found various references that they were only appropriate for the x86 install, not the x86_64 install.
I tried the 22.214.171.124 install again, to see if it would work, but it failed at the ExtProc32 link, as I mentioned above.
The docs say that 126.96.36.199 is certified with RHEL 4 x86_64, but must be installed in an existing 188.8.131.52 Oracle_Home. How the heck to I get that 184.108.40.206 Oracle_Home under RHEL 4 x86_64? Do we need to re-install the rpms listed above, install 220.127.116.11., remove the rpms and re-install the 32bit libs, then patch to 18.104.22.168?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
