    With 6 what are the steps to install Oracle 11gR2?

    steffi
      In public-yum at least there doesn't appear to be any oracle-validated to get the dependencies loaded before trying to install Oracle.

      So what is the process with R6U0?

          Database is not certified to run on OL6 yet, so there is no installation procedure. Until the product is certified and the installation procedure is written, we cannot create an oracle-validated RPM. I'm not even sure if Database will install on OL6 at all. You could try following the manual EL5 process and see how far you get. :) It's on my list of things to-do, but that list is pretty long.

            As Avi suggested, following the Oracle installation for OEL 5 is pretty fine - eventhough 11gR2 on OEL6 is not yet cetified.
            I just received an exception on the missing package pdksh-5.2.14-30.6.x86_64.rpm. It was not required on OEL5, I'm not a Linux specialist but I have had to take it from OEL4.7, then everything is working fine.
            --> From OEL 6.0
            rpm -Uvh kernel-headers-2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64.rpm

              Hi steffi,

              the installation for Oracle on OEL 6.0 is beside system-icon-theme rpm exactly like RHEL 6.0. I tested myself on both 32/64 bit architectures. For me OEL 6.0 looks fine however as you know it isn't yet certified by Oracle. That could be an explanation why oracle-validated rpm is missing.

                Hi all , Hi Nicolas

                I just made an install of 6 on VirtualBox (using you blog Nicolas ;-) ) and I was wondering why I did not find the oracle-validated rpm..

                The answer is here. Not yet certified.

                My goal was (no is) to test oracle 11gR2 and also Fusion Middleware forms and reports 11gR1 install which are, I suppose not certified also...

                Do you have informations (approx) when the Oracle Linux 6 will be certified for those software ?

                I' m not in a hurry of course but I'm always trying to be up-to-date with the latest oracle products and I found this linux 6 very interesting with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, performance improvements and more...

                Thanks

                Regards
                Jean-Yves

                  I cannot say anything for a certification date.
                  I found this linux 6 very interesting with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel
                  It is also coming within 5.6, have you had a look ? Unlike OL6, OL5.6 is certified with Oracle DB.

                  Nicolas.

                    Hi Nicolas,
                    Thanks for your answer !
                    No I didn't made a test on the 5.6 version. The last one I tried was 5.5.

                    So i will go on oracle edelivery download an test it !

                      I am unable to find package gcc-3.4.6 and package pdksh-5.2.14 to install oracle 11gR2 RDBMS on OL6.

                      I have searched @
                      http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL6/0/base/i386/

                      and /package folder of OL6 media

                      Any help?

                        Be careful, it is not supported yet. For testing purpose you could try to take it from previous OL version, e.g. http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL5/6/base/i386/
