          Oracle provides a package named oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall that will address installation prerequisites. You can find many references on the web, for instance, https://blogs.oracle.com/linux/entry/oracle_rdbms_server_11gr2_pre

            Also, make sure you are installing or higher of DB. Anything older than that doesn't work on Oracle Linux 6.

              Please note that there are some RPMS which needs 2 version of it, one for the x64 version which you are currently on and one for x32 version.

              As you can see from the output:
              Expected Value : libaio-0.3.105 (i386)
              Actual Value: missing"

              So you might be correct that you have libaio rpm installed on the server, but you also need to install 32bit RPM for libaio. Please do that, once its done the following command: rpm -qa | grep -i libaio should return 2 RPMs installed on it, one for 64 bit version and one for 32 bit, even though you are on 32 bit OS but its still needed.
