          Hi Don!
          I presume you're using Red Hat 9.0. Try this link: http://www.puschitz.com/InstallingOracle9i.shtml
          It has comprehensive instructions on how to install Oracle (various releases, up to 9i Release 2 on Linux). This page was a great help for me, and I'm sure you'll succeed in your efforts if you go through it carefully.

            Thanks Ashutosh,

            I did follow the instructions in the puschitz guide before running the Installer. Yet the process hangs when copying the read me file for the JRE install.

              How much RAM do you have, and what's the swap size? Have you checked on these parameters?

                I have a Dell Dimension/Intel Xeon/256MB RAM

                I set my swap space to what was recommended in the puschitz piece.

                  I had the same problem until I set variables.
                  export ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle
                  export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/9.2
                  export PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/bin:$PATH
                  export ORACLE_OWNER=oracle
                  #export ORACLE_SID=ora9i
                  export ORACLE_TERM=vt100
                  export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1

                    I am looking for an Oracle release that will install on Linux 9 for the workstation. Anyone have any success loading Oracle 9i to this version of Linux.

                    A list of Oracle releases that are certified for install on Linux can be found at http://www.redhat.com/oracle_cert/. Only see Linux 9 Advanced Server on this list.

                      Hi,
                      maybe your oracle's cds were corrupted ?

                        In puschitz guide you have also solution 4 your hang problem when copying the readme:
                        This problems comes up only on RH 9. You probably forgot to set the environment variable LD_ASSUME_KERNEL to 2.4.1.

                        To rectify this problem, run the following command and restart runInstaller:
                        oracle$ export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1

                        Your question about installing Oracle9i on RH 9 for the workstation - i've succesfully installed 9i on my RH 9 for workstation following puschitz guide. I've downloaded Oracle9i Release 2 for Linux from OTN.

                            Have you guys able to solve this problem? I am having the same problem. I have followed Werner Puschitz and two other documentation, but nothing mention a problem of this sort. MY INSTALL HANNGS ON "INSTALLING JRE 1.1.8.1.0".

                            I again set all the variable mentioned in thie tread......no fix, please help:


                            export ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle
                            export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/9.2
                            export PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/bin:$PATH
                            export ORACLE_OWNER=oracle

                              Here is the first output I got when I tried to run the ./runInstaller, but I was able to continues till I got to the "Installing JRE 1.1.8.1.0 while copying the README FILE"

                              Do I actually need to install JDK for the installation, because according to the installation......it says Oracle9 R2 does not need any JDK. Thanks.

                                I was able to find a solution to this problem. My initial problem was that I was executing this command "export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1" under ROOT instead of ORACLE. So for anybody that come across this problem in the future, try executing this command under ORACLE user.

                                  Don't install the Oracle from the CD.
                                  I tried few times to burning it to CDs.
                                  and I checked everything in the CDs.
                                  some files are diff from the CDs and the files that I downloaded from the Oracle site.

                                  and it caused so many problems.
                                  but when I install it from the HD.
                                  it has no problem at all.
                                  and no more JRE problem.
                                  so just do it from the HD.
                                  and good luck.
