    Available Pre-Install Database Package For RHEL?

    895327
      I love the 'oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall' rpm package that is avialable in the Oracle Linux public Yum repository. It's nice to have this tool verify / install missing packages for Oracle Database 11g R2 and also optimize the kernel and system for database functionality. My question is if there's an identical package for RHEL 6.2 or can I some how use the same Yum package on RHEL?

          There is no package for RHEL6: the preinstall RPM requires the kernel-uek to be installed, which is not available on RHEL. This is one of the advantages of running Oracle Linux for Oracle database. :) You have to do all the pre-requisite work for installation of Oracle Database on RHEL6 manually.
