I am having Ubuntu 32bit version in one partition and Win 8 64 bit in another partition.
Under Ubuntu I am unable to install with out any help. (Is it possible to install Oracle 11g R2 in Ubuntu 32bit?)
Under Win 8 64 bit I am getting an error message. If i click on it the installer quits. I am attaching the screenshot of the installer in Win 8 64 bit.
Pls see it and tell me if I could do anything to successfully install oracle 11gr2.

Is Cent OS better compatible with Oracle 11gr2? I have been using Ubuntu all these days (without Oracle 11gR2).
Ok, my friend, for Ubuntu Linux, If you want to try Linux, please go to https://forums.oracle.com/thread/2461988?start=0&tstart=0
Windows 8 is not a certified OS for installing Oracle databases currently. But a CRC error could be because the file is corrupt or that the software version is not for 64bit
Please check that your software is correct in this link: Oracle Database 11g Release 2 for Microsoft Windows (x64)</title><meta name="Title" content="Ora…
CRC stands for Cyclic Redundancy Check.
Let me know how it goes with the check.
I have started the process of installing oracle 11gR2 in Ubuntu 12.04 according to the steps mentioned in the link.
I am done till this step
Now we will start the installation. You can start the installation from /home/oracle/database.
Login as a oracle user.
But when I input su oracle it asks for password. If I give my root password it says authentication failure. I don't know what password I need to type.
I am attaching the screenshot for you.

Login as root and set the password for oracle
give the root password
passswd oracle - it will prompt you for setting the password
Then now you could login with the password set above.
If you dont want to set any password to oracle. you still have two options
1. login as root and su - oracle - which should not ask for password
2. Give sudo acces to oracle to other users.
Another factor may be:
The Oracle Database has two zip files.
You unpack both files in separate directories and then move the file contents 2 within the same disk structure 1. This can also be the cause of your mistake.
Or just unzip them both into the same directory to start with. Which is what happens if you just use the unzip command at a command line instead of relying on Windows's lame GUI. Especially given that the OP is on a Linux, albeit an unsupported distro.
What are the free linux OS's that are suited for running Oracle 11g smoothly?
Please tell the easier OS's.
As others have pointed out repeatedly in this thread, Oracle is not supported on Ubuntu. The supported distros are listed in the Software Prerequisite section of the Installation Guide.
So why do you seem to insist on pushing ahead with an unsupported os?
32 Bit installations
64 bit Installations
Please check for installation document o/s requirements for further.
Ok. But the download page has more confusing info.
Please see here

The download page has a lot of links say update with media pack
I am confused as to which one to download.
When I click on Oracle Linux Release 6 Media Pack for x86 (32 bit) , the link takes me to this pages see screenshot http://i40.tinypic.com/2f0dhxl.png which again has 3 links. Out of these three which one to download ?
I would suggest you install Oracle Linux 5.7 or 5.8 or 5.9
Only 126.96.36.199 is certified for Linux 6.x, and 188.8.131.52 is only available for customers with a Support contract. If you only have access to the publicly available 184.108.40.206 version, it is not certified on Linux 6.x
Is the installation of oracle linux easy? I have been installing and using Ubuntu all these years without any problem. However I am new to Oracle Linux.
Is it easier to install for a new user?
or shall i use cent OS?
But the main purpose of the OS for now is installing and using oracle 11gR2.
