        Hi,

        On RHEL5 installation of the following packages will resolve the problem of libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

        Solution:

        rpm -ivh libXau-devel-1.0.1-3.1.i386.rpm
        rpm -ivh libXp-1.0.0-8.i386.rpm
        rpm -ivh libXp-devel-1.0.0-8.i386.rpm

        Regards,

          Installing xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-1.EL.13.6.i386.rpm on RHEL4 solved the

          "libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

          error for me in the Oracle 10.2 Client install. This package is not listed in teh Requirements (Packages) section of the install docs.

            You need to install libXp package.
            I installed all the previous packages mentioned here, but I still had the same problem.

            The post of Ivan Kartik did the trick for me

              Hello,

              I'm having the same problem with the installation of Oracle Clusterware and Oracle Database with RAC - the installation fails at the very beginning because of a missing "libXp.so.6" file. I'm not using RHEL, however, but Centora Linux 5.1, which is basically the same as RHEL 5 update 1 (same source code). Unfortunately, the "xorg-x11-deprecated-libs" package is not on their installation CD, so I cannot install the missing file that way. Is there any other way of getting round that problem ?

              I did notice that the "libXp.so.6" file does in fact exist, in the "/usr/lib64" directory. I believe it was put there when I installed J2SDK. But how can I get the OUI to recognise that file ?

              Regards,

              Reg TAMAN

                Sorry, I made a small mistake - I meant CentOS (not Centora) for the Linux distribution.

                  FYI:

                  I am installing the application server on RHEL5 (actually CentOS5), and got the same error message. The xorg-x11-deprecated-libs package is not available for RHEL5.

                  I got around this by downloading the latest CentOS4 package, and installed it.
                  Please mind a little trick is needed to make it work entirely (the problem is the /usr/X11R6/lib location is not used by the dynamic loader; this can be solved by either setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the directory, or by symlinking the library in a place that is used by the dynamic loader):

                  wget http://centos.osmirror.nl/4.6/os/i386/CentOS/RPMS/xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-1.EL.33.i386.rpm
                  rpm -Uvh xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-1.EL.33.i386.rpm
                  ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libXp.so.6 /lib/libXp.so.6

                        Yep, discovered that yesterday.

                        The link to the centos repositories was broken on the machine I tested it.

                        I usually (and did) use the 'yum provides' command:

                        [root@localhost oracle]# yum provides libXp.so.6
                        Loading "installonlyn" plugin

                          NJ, It's more handy to use yum provides with centos (and also available as up2date for redhat, en as up2date/ULN for oracle enterprise linux), than downloading rpm's by hand.

                          also, yum investigates and (more importantly) corrects rpm dependencies.

                          It's good to point to a centos repository, but it's much more important to point people to the fact there are much mirrors of the centos rpm repositories, which are listed at http://www.centos.org/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=13

                            Right. To resume.

                            The main (central) CentOS website is

                            http://centos.org
                            or
                            http://www.centos.org

                            Tha main CentOS download site is

                            http://mirror.centos.org/centos/

                            but it is usually busy, so it sounds reasonable to use one of the local mirror sites (nl, de, uk, etc). The complete list of mirror sites (http & ftp) can be found here:

                            http://www.centos.org/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=13


                            Iso images are NOT available at the main download site. The list of mirrors containing .iso images can be found here:

                            Personally I prefer up2date for my OEL-5 Network License subscription. For non-oracle add-on downloads and updates I use Smart Package Manager 5.2, in python written tool, see

                            http://labix.org/smart

                            which is the best, most intelligent, most functional and best-looking package manager in the world. Nothing can compete with it. Here are several screenshots to get a taste of it:

                            Install the packages, cd to /etc/smart/channels directory and delete its content (files) if it exists. Now make and edit your own four files (channels) in the directory (centos.channel, centosup.channel, centosext.channel and dag.channel) exactly as you see:
                            # cat /etc/smart/channels/centos.channel

                            priority = 100

                            # cat /etc/smart/channels/centosup.channel

                            priority = 150

                            # cat /etc/smart/channels/centosext.channel
                            [centosext]
                            name = CENTOS 5.1 Extras(i386)
                            baseurl = http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.1/extras/i386/
                            type = rpm-md
                            priority = 130

                            # cat /etc/smart/channels/dag.channel
                            [dag]
                            name = Dag RPM Repository for RHEL 5 (i386)
                            baseurl = http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/dag/
                            type = rpm-md
                            priority = 110
                            and save the files. If you are on 64-bit, just type "/x86_64/" instead of "/i386/". When CentOS-5.2 be released, change "/5.1/" to "/5.2/" in centos channels.

                            Start Smart (/usr/bin/smart-gui), click on View/Tree Style menu items and select Channels (view by channels). At the moment you will see only the "RPM System" channel, that is you current system installation. Click on the "Update channels" icon (two oval arrows at the left-most side of the toolbar), and Smart will start fetching channels' repositories. At the end of the process you will see 5 channels. Expand a channel tree and select packages to be installed/updated/removed by checking the square on the left side of the package name (click only once). That's all. Enjoy!

                            For others, including me, who prefer OEL-5, the crucial question is why we need CentOS-5 at all. Why is Oracle so hardfisted and frowardly refuses to include just several packages from the 5Client repository that are not the part of the 5Server repository, but are very important for everyone. There are only a dozen additional packages, so that trying to understand such a packaging policy is completely beyond me:

                              NJ, please forgive me if this sounds rude, but who's question are you answering?
                              I didn't ask anything, I tried to point out that pointing people to rpm's isn't the best way to do package management.

                              Also, I think it's a extremely bad idea to add non-default repositories, like dag-wiers to production servers. That's something for desktops. But that's my opinion.

                                It doesn't sound rude. It IS rude. But I forgive you.

                                but who's question are you answering?
                                Am I here only to answer a question? What about informing those members of the forum who are not too familiar with the sites above about the right URLs ? Consider that just as an add-on information.

                                I didn't ask anything,
                                Oh, excuse me. I do apologize for any inconvenience.

                                I tried to point out that pointing people to rpm's isn't the best way to do
                                package management.
                                Right. We all know that. That's the reason I posted my add-on.

                                Also, I think it's a extremely bad idea to add non-default repositories,
                                like dag-wiers to production servers.
                                Why? Using the Smart Package Manager and setting the priority to a low number, say lower than the number for the base repository, everything is under your absolute control, specially if you use gui console. It is called Smart Package Manager because it is too smart.

                                  I just want to thank you for posting this. I am hoping the install will go smoothly.
