    Issue installing pre-reqs for database


      Hi All,


      I am new to oracle database, please help me with the issue that I am seeing with installing pre-reqs.


      I am trying to install libstdc++-4.4.4-13.el6.i686 from the list that oracle provides on an oracle linux 6 and getting this issue.

      Already tried the 1st suggestion, but nothing happened, got the same issue again.


      yum install libstdc++-4.4.4-13.el6.i686

      Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, security

      Setting up Install Process

      Resolving Dependencies

      --> Running transaction check

      ---> Package libstdc++.i686 0:4.4.4-13.el6 will be installed

      --> Finished Dependency Resolution

      Error:  Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root

             cause is something else and multilib version checking is just

             pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.:


               1. You have an upgrade for libstdc++ which is missing some

                  dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to

                  solve this by installing an older version of libstdc++ of the

                  different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture

                  yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package

                  requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with

                  --exclude libstdc++.otherarch ... this should give you an error

                  message showing the root cause of the problem.


               2. You have multiple architectures of libstdc++ installed, but

                  yum can only see an upgrade for one of those arcitectures.

                  If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you

                  can remove the one with the missing update and everything

                  will work.


               3. You have duplicate versions of libstdc++ installed already.

                  You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors.


             ...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove

             this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to

             do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing

             much more problems).


             Protected multilib versions: libstdc++-4.4.4-13.el6.i686 != libstdc++-4.4.7-3.el6.x86_64

      You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem

      You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

        • 1. Re: Issue installing pre-reqs for database

          yum install libstdc++-4.4.4-13.el6.i686


          This is now how you would normally use YUM to install software.


          It is much better to simply use the following and let the YUM utility sort out version requirements and dependencies:


          yum install libstdc++


          You can try "yum remove name" to uninstall any of the prerequisite software you installed and then:


          yum install oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall


          yum install oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall


          to install all prerequisite software and automatically setup the oracle account and kernel parameters.
