            Hi,

            if you use OL, install the Oracle preinstall package:

            https://blogs.oracle.com/linux/entry/oracle_rdbms_server_11gr2_pre

            This will pull all necessary packages.
            And by the way in most cases newer versions are o.k. (however there are some exceptions to this).

            Regards
            Sebastian

                I read somewhere that erros which can usually be ignored since OUI does not recognise newer packages,

                INFO: Error Message:PRVF-7532 : Package "libaio-0.3.105 (i386)" is missing on node "<node_name>"

                Is this ture ? Because I am also getting the same packages list.

                Please help.

                Thank You.

                  Pl note that only 11.2.0.3 is certified to be installed on Linux 6.x - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/relnotes.112/e23558/toc.htm#CHDFHIEA

                  If you are installing 11.2.0.1 or 11.2.0.2, you will need to use Linux 5.x
