I have installed Oracle 10.2.0.1 on SLES 10, Can I apply the 10.2.0.4 patch directly on it ?? Or I have to apply the 10.2.0.2 patch first ??

    You can directly apply 10.2.0.4 on top of 10.2.0.1 - these patch sets are cumulative - pl check the README of patch 10.2.0.4

    I am installing in a virtual environment. So no need of swap here. Also installed 10.2.0.1 with the same both swap and display error(used x manager) and it was success.

    But during patch it just hanged with 80%.


    and on xscreen its giving the error:

    Warning: String to TranslationTable conversion encountered errors
    Warning: translation table syntax error: Unknown keysym name: osfPrimaryPaste
    Warning: ... found while parsing ':m <Key>osfPrimaryPaste:cut-primary()'

    try this :

         $ locate XKeysymDB
         /usr/share/X11/XKeysymDB

         $ cd /usr/X11R6/lib
         $ ln -s /usr/share/X11

    (this will create a soft link named X11 that points to the
                             actual X11 directory within /usr/share)

    make sure you have met all prerequisite before proceeding upgrade, Following readme correctly is enough to complete the upgrade task successfully.

    It says file exists. Its not an X11 error certainly, as the OUI is emulated and after clicking next in case of patch it stops at 80%.

    Actually after immediate installation of 10.2.0.1 , I tried to apply patch. I have not created a DB yet. Will this be an issue , as the link you provided in 1st post , says to stop all before patching. BUt in my case I have not created , so nothing to stop.

    Pl post host and guest OS details. A virtual machine requires swap just like a physical machine does. You will need to fix this error - you got lucky the first time.
    But during patch it just hanged with 80%.
    Pl follow all of the steps in the README of the 10.2.0.4 patch.

    Dear Srini and Veeresh,thanks to all.

    This issue is solved. The patch copied was corrupted, I copied the patch folder again and the patching is finished without any error.

    Now I have to create DB using DBCA.
