    Install R12.1.1 on OEL 6.2

    SanDan
      Has anyone succesfully installed R12.1.1 on OEL 6.2 ?
      Oracle recently certified OEL 6* for R12 but I don't see any oracle-validated packages available from http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-ol6.repo.
      Anyone know how to get the required RPM's? There is nothing much available in oss.oracle.com

          Are you installing on 64-bit OS?

          You can download the packages from http://oss.oracle.com/projects/compat-oracle/files/Enterprise_Linux/ -- Oracle E-Business Suite Installation and Upgrade Notes Release 12 (12.1.1) for Linux x86-64 [ID 761566.1]

          Thanks,

            Yes , I am using 64 bit OS. I have succesfully installed R12.1.1 earlier on OEL 5.5 with oracle-validated-rpm package.
            I tried installing R12.1.1 in OEL 6.2 but it failed at the post installation checks. I figured out that this is due to missing/in-compatibale RPM's with OEL 6.2.
            I just wanted to check if some one knows about oracle validated RPM's which supports OEL6.2 or
            Can we install 5.* RPM's in 6.2?

              What is the complete error message?
              Can we install 5.* RPM's in 6.2?
              I believe not, unless it states clearly that you can use the same package.

                This is the error, I am getting while installing R12.1.1 on OEL 6.2.
                It passed all the pre checks requir and finally failed at step 4 of 5.

                As per the metalink note 761566.1 , I installed all the required RPM's ,applied patch 6078836, changed the kernel settings etc..

                I am not sure what I am missing here. Can some one throw some light on this.

                Thanks.

                              I dont see any libdb-4.3.so or libdb-4.1.so in OEL 6.2 But I see the same in RHEL 5.5
                              Is it the issue with OS version?

                                Hello,

                                The installation notes have been updated and now state to create a link to libdb-4.7.so, however there was not present in my installation. I resolved the exact same issue by performing the following:

                                # yum install db4.i686 db4-devel.i686 db4.x86_64 db4-devel.x86_64 (these contain libdb-4.7.so)
                                # cd /usr/lib
                                # ln -s libdb-4.7.so libdb-4.3.so

                                As the application user I ran the following to start all application tier server processes (which is where it failed during the installation):

                                $ ./adstrtal.sh

                                This now completed without incident.

                                Regards,
