Here is what i had to do after installing OEL5 for the package requirement.
1. Install the following “rpm” from the EL5 cd#2
rpm -Uvh compat-libstdc++-33*
rpm -ivh elfutils-libelf-devel-0.125-3.el5.i386.rpm elfutils-libelf-devel-static-0.125-3.el5.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh glibc-devel-2.5-12.i386.rpm glibc-headers-2.5-12.i386.rpm gcc-4.1.1-52.el5.i386.rpm libgomp-4.1.1-52.el5.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh gcc-c++-4.* libstdc++-devel-4.1.1-52.el5.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh libaio-devel-0.*
rpm -Uvh unixODBC-2.*
rpm -Uvh unixODBC-devel-2.*
2. Install the following “rpm” from the EL5 cd#3
rpm -Uvh sysstat-7.*

Why are you guys so complicating something that is so trivial and simple? The 11g installation guide for Linux states clearly that (for OEL-5) the following packages must be installed:
binutils-126.96.36.199.6-2.el5All these packages are on OEL-5 distribution media pack (CDs) and you can install them at any time. The simplest way to do so is to choose the packages during main installation. Never accept the default installation image on the installer screen. Instead, choose the packages yourself.
One would imagine that all these packages would be installed "by default" from a vendor who owns the operating system now and is certifying their latest product on it (11G)...but no..we have to do all this love and care afterwords..
But Thanks NJ for pointing those packages out..I am sure it's all there in the documentation...
I am just not as up-to-speed on linux/RPM installs..

Absolutely right. The default installation should be with all those required packages. It's one of the reasons why OEL exists at all. Obviously Oracle's Linux Product Management folks don't care about it. So, we must take care. Fortunately, the problem is trivial anyway.
geez.. now I know why the consultants and DBAs make all that money! Heck if it was as easy as choosing all those packages with an option to install them by letting the installer know it is for 11g, where would the DBAs and all those consultants go??
It's riduculous to be sifting through all those rpms and trying to install them, only to find that there are more dependant objects that need to be installed first and go around hunting for them in all the 5 CDs?? what rubbish!
