    Installing Business Intelligence 11g on Centos 6 x64

    Denis Ojok
      Hello all,
      I need help in installing Oracle Business Intelligence 11.5 (11g) on Centos 6.3 x64 (64 bit).
      Please let me know which packages are required for this installation to be successful.
      I have read oracle installation documents for Oracle Business Intelligence 11, but these documents do not mention any required packages.
      Please share with me your experience with this installation on a 64 bit machine. Any information will be very helpful.
      Thank you,
      Denis Ojok

              I installed OBIEE on centos 64Bit two weeks ago.
              Packages needed are listed in Obiee installation doc.
              Install all 64bit packages listed (x86_64) and i686 version for 32bit.
              After runnung the installer ignore the messages of missing 32bit packages during the check of prerequisites and go to the next step: Obiee will still work perfectly.

              Hope it helps

              please mark if useful

              thanks
