      So I want to know Did I have miss any package during Linux installation or Is there any other problem ?.  If yes then which package I should install?

       

      My ORACLE_BASE = /u01/app/oracle

           ORACLE_HOME =/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1

           ORACLE_SID= orcl

       

      Thanks & Regards...

          Hi,

           

          So I want to know Did I have miss any package during Linux installation or Is there any other problem ?. 

          Yes, you have missed certain pre-requisite patches. Please search and install rpm libXext. Ensure you install all dependent rpms as well.

           

          Thanks &

          Best Regards,

              Hi,

               

              Go to link:

              Oracle; Database

               

              Search for 'The following or later version of packages for Oracle Linux 6, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 must be installed:', Ensure all the rpms listed are installed.

               

              Once done, move forward with your installation.

               

              Hope this helps,

              HTH!

              Thanks &

              Best Regards,

                I have several comments:

                 

                1. Don't use the RPM utility to install software. It does not resolve dependencies. As of RHEL 5, YUM or UP2DATE are the standard software management tools.
                2. RHEL? Do you have a paid subscription or money to waste? If not, you will be much better off using Oracle Linux, because you can download it for free and also have access to all errata and patches for free (http://public-yum.oracle.com). If you need the RHCK kernel instead of the more advanced Oracle UEK kernel, which is optimized by Oracle for Oracle products, no problem, because Oracle Linux ships with both. If you want to use Linux ASMLib under RHEL 6, you need a RHEL subscription to download the kernel module. The Oracle UEK kernel includes the driver.
                3. Also if you use Oracle Linux, you can install the oracle-rdbms-server-11gr2-preinstall package, which triggers the installation of all prerequisite software and takes care of kernel parameters and creating the Oracle account. You then simply set a password for the Oracle account and you're done.
                4. RHEL 6.0. Why such an old version and not 6.4?
                5. According to my records, you can use the following command under  RHEL 6 to install the 11gR2 prerequisite software. Yum will automatically install other depended software as required.
                  yum install compat-libstdc++-33 compat-gcc-34 compat-gcc-34-c++ \
                  elfutils-libelf-devel ksh sysstat make gcc gcc-c++ compat-libcap1 \
                  glibc-devel glibc-common glibc-headers libstdc++-devel libaio-devel
