Oracle Linux Calendar 9.0.4.2/10 and Fedora Core 5

Hi folks --

I recently migrated from FC4 to FC5 (did a fresh install), and to my chagrin, the Oracle Calendar linux client install is now broken. This was running fine under both FC4 and RHEL 4. Here is the error I receive on any of the installs (silent/text/graphical):

---------
[root@pcalarco OracleCalendar_inst]# sh silent_install.sh
Preparing to install...

-----------

I know Fedora Core isn't officially supported, but does anyone have a solution for this? Are these just path errors for the JRE as in previous problems with Fedora?

Also, does Oracle Calendar 10 run any better in FC5?

Many thanks in advance!

    I did some searching, and found that this is a common problem with many applications migrating from FC4 to FC5. This problem is caused due to incompatibility of the installer's Java Run-time Environment with certain system libraries.

    In order to solve this, run these commands on the {OracleCalendar_install/cal_linux_904 file:

    $ cp cal_linux_904 cal_linux_904.bak

    $ cat cal_linux_904.bak | sed "s/export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/#xport LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/" > cal_linux_904

    $ rm cal_linux_904.bak

    Now the installers work fine.

    I using FC5 with kernel 2.6.16-1.2111_FC5smp and JRE version 1.5.0_06-b05. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi Jim --

    Do you have your Java location added to your PATH? Try:

    echo $PATH

    to see if it is there, then, if not:

    PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/..../bin sh silent_install.sh

    where you complete the path to where your JRE is installed. This has seemed to fix the problem for several other applications under FC5.

    Here is what is in my path:

    [root@P624595-VM1 OracleCalendar_inst]# echo $PATH
    /opt/jre1.5.0_06/bin:/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/opt/jre1.5.0_06/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/root/bin

    It appears that it is in path, unless that's not it.

    Thanks

    The only other thing I can think of is perhaps whether SELinux is getting in the way. I have my workstation set at permissive.

    My /etc/selinux/config:

    # This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
    # SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
    # enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
    # permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
    # disabled - SELinux is fully disabled.
    SELINUX=permissive
    # SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
    # targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
    # strict - Full SELinux protection.
    SELINUXTYPE=targeted

    # SETLOCALDEFS= Check local definition changes
    SETLOCALDEFS=0

    You could try setting SELinux to permissive or disabled, reboot, and then try installing again. Beyond this, I can only suggest trying a reinstall with JRE 1.5 update 7. I'm not a java person, so debugging this is a bit beyond me. Please post your solution if you do get this one figured out.

    Thanks and best,

    I finally found how to fix this, now in Fedora 7.

    Beyond the export steps above, also add the following package:

    libXP

    Now I can install the Motif version of the Oracle Calendar client 9.0.4
