          Hi,

          Has anyone got anything that can help?

          I'm trying to install 11.5.10.2 on Suse 10.1 and am having problems.

          Firstly, I hadn't installed gcc or ksh, so I've just done that.

          Now I get an error message saying:

          Checking for ksh...     
          Unable to find PD KSH version.
          Unable to locate all utilities with system path.

          I've since downloaded (what I thought was) PD KSH and ran ./configure but it doesn't seem to be picking it up.

          "which ksh" gives:
          /usr/local/bin/ksh

          which seems to imply that it's now looking at the PD KSH I installed.

          If I ignore the error and continue with the installation, it just hangs forever on Step 1 of 5:

          Command /oracle/vision/visiondb/9.2.0/temp/VISION_mymah=chine/adrun9i.sh
          Executing Command: InstantiateFile -d instconf.drv

          There is nothing in the log files to show what it's meant to be doing.

          Any ideas?

          TIA,

          Matt

            Hi,

            You can export O.S executables in PATH and rerun the profile.

            It should resolve your issue.

              Thanks - it's moved on a little bit. Now I get:

                For Redhat Linux you can try this

                  Hello Dwayne,

                  As far as I know, OEBS 11.5.10.2 is not yet certified on SuSE 10.1. I understand this may be due to the kernel and parameters, but it has been certified for SuSE 9 ( any of the releases) and I have added a link to my thread for the installation steps posted on here as written by Michael B in the cool notes section of the SUSE websites.

                  Find below for your convenience the link to my thread, which in-turn has a link to Michael's link on the SUSE website:

                  Good Luck

                    Hi,

                    Thanks. I can't get SUSE 8 or 9 to work properly with my laptop (fails to recognize the network card, sound card or graphics card correctly!), which is why I move to SUSE 10, which works fine.

                    Redhat seems to cost money - I thought the whole thing about Linux was that it was free!! If I wanted to pay for an OS, I'd be running Oracle on Windows...

                    So it looks like either wait until 11.5.10 is supported on SUSE10, get a different laptop which can run SUSE9, or try Asianux which appears to be free. Or give up on the whole idea.

                    Not much of a choice really - back to pondering about where to go from here...

                    Matt

                      Hey Mark,

                      Look on the brighter side !

                      Try Ubuntu....I hear it works well.

                        Hi,

                        I'm going to have another go with SUSE 10 - someone I work with has got 11.5.10.2 running on SUSE 10 on an Apple Mac, so I should be able to get it going eventually...

                          I wish you all the best Mark.

                          Would your laptop be an ACER ? From the log you posted, it looks like it is, and may be related to laptop/OS issues.

                          Regards

                            Plus make sure you check the steps I listed on my thread.

                            Also make sure you have installed the entire development kit, when installing SUSE. It may be some library files not available.

                            e.g I had to install openmotif of a higher version to get the forms server working... I do not have any documentation for the relevant library files, but I assume installing the entire development kit should do the magic.

                            All the very best

                              It is an Acer, but everything else works OK - installing SUSE 10 was the easiest installation I can remember!

                                Do you have this working already? I have documentation for installing and maintaining 11.5.10.2 on Suse 10.1. It is working great on my Thinkpad with 10.2.0.2 database, developer patchset 18, ATG.H RUP 4, latest FIN, HR, ASCP family and rollup patches.

                                    The following guides provide a basic outline of what you would need to do.

                                    The simple web alias for the Novell Oracle documentation is www.suse.com/oracle, then click on Documentation.

                                    http://ftp.novell.com/partners/oracle/docs/10gR2_SL10_introduction.pdf

                                    http://ftp.novell.com/partners/oracle/docs/10gR2_openSUSE102_introduction.pdf

                                    Install Suse Linux 10.1 with at least the following groups:

                                    Graphical Base System
                                    KDE Desktop Environment
                                    C/C++ Compiler and Tools

                                    Under partitioning, ensure you have 2GB minimum for swap. I have 2GB physical and 2GB swap, and swap is usually near 1GB with all services running. I recommend starting with 4 or 6 GB of swap (2x-3x physical ram).

                                    I used to prefer running 11i on reiserFS due to superior write speeds and better storage allocation of the 700,000 small 11i files. ReiserFS is now in maintenance mode from both Oracle and Novell standpoints, so if you are starting out with a fresh install, choose ext3 with the data=writeback mount option.

                                    If the following packages are not on your media, download from http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/SL-10.1

                                    During the installation, I deselect java 1.4.2 and select java 1.5.0, which delivers the following packages

                                    One xvfbserver is saved, type insserv xvfbserver in /etc/init.d as root.

                                    xvfb allows dynamic gifs to be generated correctly, mwm allows bitmapped reports to run with error from the concurrent managers.

                                    If you want to test Workflow notifications, edit /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf and set:

                                    disable_plaintext_auth = no

                                    SSL enabled IMAP for 11i was only enabled after ATG.H RUP 3, and not really required small training environments.

                                    2) Remove any LD_ASSUME_KERNEL references in O/S /etc/profile.d files

                                    3) Comment out LD_ASSUME_KERNEL entries in $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/bin/adgetlnxver.sh and $AD_TOP/bin/adgetlnxver.sh

                                    if [ ${setflag}x = "x" -a $os = "Suse" ]; then
                                    # LD_ASSUME_KERNEL="2.4.21"
                                    # export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL
                                    os="Suse"
                                    fi
                                    if [ ${setflag}x = "x" -a $os = "RH" ]; then
                                    # LD_ASSUME_KERNEL="2.4.19"
                                    # export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL
                                    os = "RH"
                                    fi

                                    If doing a rapid install, the database startup will fail and rapidwiz will prompt to ignore or retry. At this point, edit $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/bin/adgetlnxver.sh as shown above and click on retry. It will then run to the autoconfig step at the end and error out. Just hit cancel, edit $AD_TOP/bin/adgetlnxver.sh as shown above.

                                    At this point, go to $APPL_TOP/admin, and in sid_host.xml,

                                    replace

                                    <sun_plugin_ver oa_var="s_sun_plugin_ver">1.4.2_04</sun_plugin_ver>

                                    with

                                    <sun_plugin_ver oa_var="s_sun_plugin_ver">1.5.0_07</sun_plugin_ver>

                                    Then run autoconfig.

                                    Register the Sun Java Plugin with Firefox by creating a soft link in /usr/lib/browser-plugins:

                                    # cd /usr/lib/browser-plugins
                                    # ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun-1.5.0_07/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

                                    This will allow you to open 11i forms that require Jinitiator in Windows via the Sun Java Plugin in either Firefox or SeaMonkey (the Mozilla replacement) on your Suse 10.1 machine.

                                    4) In order to relink cplex library executables (MSC, MSO, MSR, MST, WIP, etc), edit $AD_TOP/bin/adrelinknew.sh and add the following LD option (-Wl,--noinhibit-exec) in the LINUX section:

                                    LINUX)
                                    LDFLAGS='-s -L$(ORACLE_HOME)/lib -L$(ORACLE_HOME)/lib/stubs -ldl'
                                    DEBUG_LDFLAGS='-g -L$(ORACLE_HOME)/lib -L$(ORACLE_HOME)/lib/stubs -ldl'
                                    exe_line='ELF .*executable'
                                    SHRLIB_LD='gcc'
                                    LD='gcc'
                                    SHRLIB_LDFLAGS='-L$(ORACLE_HOME)/lib -L$(ORACLE_HOME)/lib/stubs -shared'
                                    if test -f "/etc/redhat-release"; then
                                    CPP_LIBS='/usr/lib/libstdc++-2-libc6.1-1-2.9.0.so'
                                    elif test -f "/etc/SuSE-release"; then
                                    CPP_LIBS='/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.2.9'
                                    else
                                    CPP_LIBS=''
                                    fi
                                    CPP='g++'
                                    CPP_LDFLAGS='-s -L$(ORACLE_HOME)/lib -L$(ORACLE_HOME)/lib/stubs

                                    set CPP_LDFLAGS='-s -L$(ORACLE_HOME)/lib -L$(ORACLE_HOME)/lib/stubs

                                    to CPP_LDFLAGS='-s -L$(ORACLE_HOME)/lib -L$(ORACLE_HOME)/lib/stubs -Wl,--noinhibit-exec'

                                    After this change, you can apply any MRP, ASCP patch and all executables will relink correctly. You can also use adadmin to relink all executables and it completes without error.

                                    5) For Discoverer 4.1.48.08, Follow Metalink Note 280598.1 Discoverer 4i On Linux: Required Patch and Configuration for Discoverer Server Stability to use JDK 1.3.1 and oadj. I updated the autoconfig template files with this change after applying 3895177. Discoverer viewer and plus standard BIS reports all open correctly on SLES-10/Suse 10.1

                                    6) If you want to apply Developer 6i Patchset 17 or 18 to your 11i system, edit $ORACLE_HOME/forms60/lib/cus_forms60w.mk and ins_forms60w.mk and remove the -Bstatic
