Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.3 (Santiago)
.... 2.6.39-200.24.1.e16uek.x86_64 ..... x86_64 GNU/LINUX
We're just starting to test oracle installs on rhel 6.3.
We're installing oracle 126.96.36.199 x86_64 linux. The installation went smooth but when I went to install PSU 13923374 it complained about invalid version
Patch .... is not applicable on current platform
a look into oraclehomeproperties.xml show
file oracle,sqlldr etc all show up as 32bit.
I created a db successfully and v$database show 32 bit.
So oracle compiled everything as 32bit which I didn't even know was possible for x86_64. I successfully installed the same zip files for Linux 5.6 and it shows 64 bit.
I'm wondering how to fix this and where oracle decided it was 32 bit. I'm surprised it even compiled this way. I guess I'm missing a library somewhere but I'm not sure on what to look for.
By fix it I mean I will deinstall and then reinstall but I want it to compile as 64 bit.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Your wondering how to fix an issue with an unsupported environment.
I'm wondering why anyone is wasting time and energy trying to do something in an unsupported environment.
What is the value in creating something that is unsupported unless you are a consultant being paid by the hour in which case sign me up. ;-)
Something is fishy here - if you have a 64-bit OS and 64-bit database software, then you should get a 64-bit database.
There are two versions of 13923374 - one for 32-bit and one for 64-bit - which version did you download and apply ?
who says it's unsupported. It is definitely supported.
Oracle Database 188.8.131.52.0 is certified on Linux x86 Oracle Linux 6
Oracle Database 184.108.40.206.0 is certified on Linux x86 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
By downloading the x86 version from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/112010-linuxsoft-085393.html, rather than the x86_64 version from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/112010-linx8664soft-100572.html
Can you pl post the names of the files that were downloaded for the 11gR2 install ?
