    Installing oracle 11g rel2 for linux on a Ubuntu desktop PC

    Neill_R
      Attempting to get Oracle Enterpise linux and see if I can install Oracle 11g on that OS




      Hi

      Although I have 11g R2 running under Windows Xp Sp3 I wish to gain experience of Oracle Database and Oracle client running under Linux. I am using Ubuntu 12.04 when i run the installer

      cd database

      ./renInstaller

      then it tells me i have preinstall problems

      This is a prerequisite condition to test whether the system is running with proper run level. (more details)
      Expected Value
       : 3,5
      Actual Value
       : 2
      found a way to get round this at boot time

      Packages (loads)

      This is a prerequisite condition to test whether the package "make-3.80" is available on the system. (more details)
      Expected Value
       : make-3.80
      Actual Value
       : missing
      but if I

      $ make -v
      GNU Make 3.81

      This program built for i686-pc-linux-gnu


      It appears it is not finding the make program to see that it is 3.81.

      what assignments is missing please

      from the installation guide
      database folder contains the contents of the install CDrom

      oracle@Neill-Desktop:~/database$ sudo rpm -q make
      [sudo] password for oracle:
      package make is not installed

          UBUNTU is not an OS supported by Oracle.
          you would have an easier time installing Oracle RDBMS on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5

            It might be easier to install Virtualbox (free download from http://www.virtualbox.org) on your Win XP machine, create a Linux VM, download and install OEL (free download from http://linux.oracle.com) in the Linux VM, then install 11gR2 in OEL. This assumes you have a Windows machine with beefy processor and RAM
