Not able to install 11.2.0.3 on OEL 6.3 x86_64

Hi,
I originally hijacked another forum thread that was vaguely similar toy what I seem to be experiencing. A kind forum moderator has split my post away and put a more descriptive title to it, to let it stand on its own. (... and moved it from the Oracle Linux forum to the Database Installation forum for closer topic alignment)

Here's my post:

I'm trying to install 11.2.0.3 on OEL 6.3 x86_64. But, getting error:

[root@ecsrac2 Packages]# rpm -ivh glibc-2.12-1.80.el6.i686.rpm
warning: glibc-2.12-1.80.el6.i686.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID ec551f03: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies:
libfreebl3.so is needed by glibc-2.12-1.80.el6.i686
libfreebl3.so(NSSRAWHASH_3.12.3) is needed by glibc-2.12-1.80.el6.i686
[root@ecsrac2 Packages]# uname -a
Linux ecsrac2.ecsims.com 2.6.39-200.24.1.el6uek.x86_64 #1 SMP Sat Jun 23 02:39:07 EDT 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

    Don't use RPM to install packages, use yum. It'll solve the dependency issues you're seeing. Also, the thread that you hijacked actually had the correct answer in it, which you seem to have ignored in your haste to post:
    # yum install oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall
    If you are subscribed to ULN or public-yum.oracle.com (which OL6U3 is by default), this will automatically install the pre-requisite RPMs for Oracle Database 11.2.0.3 and configure all the user and sysctl.conf settings required for the OUI:

    Please find it below the result. Is it the missing i686 version? Please guide me to find the appropriate RPMs for it.


    [root@ecsrac1 ~]# find / -name libfree\* -print 2>/dev/null
    /usr/lib64/libfreebl3.chk
    /usr/lib64/libfreebl.a
    /usr/lib64/libfreetype.so.6.3.22
    /usr/lib64/libfreetype.so
    /usr/lib64/libfreebl3.so
    /usr/lib64/libfreetype.so.6
    /lib64/libfreebl3.chk
    /lib64/libfreebl3.so


    Thanks.

    Hi "sb92075",

    Thanks for the pointer. Issue got resolved - I could find and install both RPMs together to avoid deadlock in dependency...

    [root@labrac1 Packages]# rpm -ivh nss-softokn-freebl-3.12.9-11.el6.i686.rpm glibc-2.12-1.80.el6.i686.rpm
    warning: nss-softokn-freebl-3.12.9-11.el6.i686.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID ec551f03: NOKEY
    Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
    1:glibc ########################################### [ 50%]
    2:nss-softokn-freebl ########################################### [100%]

    Thank you Avi for your suggestion on YUM - being a test setup, this box is not yet exposed to Internet.

    Thanks.
