Oracle 11g on Oracle Linux 8

User_U2AHC

Trying to install Oracle 11g on Oracle Linux 8 vm on the Oracle Cloud. Downloaded zip files for 11.2.0.1 for Linux x86_64, because that is all I could find on the download site for Linux x86_64. Unzipped them and did the preinstall stuff. Created a response file for a silent install. But, I get an error:

[INS-07009] Unable to load bean store

  CAUSE: Unexpected error while loading the bean store.

  ACTION: Refers logs or contact Oracle Support Services

  SUMMARY:

    - invalid character % in name


I have tried changing the PS1 env var. No luck. And tried everything else I could Google. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated


Thanks

    Hi,

    Oracle 11g is not supported / certified on Linux 8.

    11g is supported on Oracle Linux / Red Hat Linux versions 4, 5 and 6.

    You can verify that on the certification page on Oracle support site:
