Summary: How do I install 18.104.22.168 64bit on RHEL 4 x86_64? I've done it successfully a bunch on RHEL 3 x86_64.
I've run into the same problem.
So far I have been unable to link any of the 32 bit pieces for Oracle under RHEL 4 x86_64.
My 'solution' has been to hack the make files to exclude the 32 bit EXTPROC, and rerun the make.
While using OUI to install, when the installer fails, I then edit the makefiles, and hit <RETRY>.
When doing patches with opatch, I tell opatch to ignore those errors, check the logs for the make commands, edit the same makefiles again ( opatch rewrites them ) and run the make manually.
Yes, it's a pain.
If you search the archives you'll see my thread on this from a couple months back. I never found a better solution. No, I didn't open an SR (TAR).
Here's an excerpt from my notes on this:
Tried several things suggested on MetaLink and in forums via google search - nothing has helped link the 32 bit parts of Oracle 9204 on RH Linux ES4.
(The LD_ASSUME_KERNEL var is still required)
The only way to get all to relink was to comment out the 32 bit parts (IEXTPROC32) in ins_rdbms.mk and env_rdbms.mk in $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib. Then all linked fine.
make -f ins_rdbms.mk install =======================
