      Hi,

      I am trying to install Oracle 11g R2 on OEL 6.3, but i am facing some issues. Help needed.

          You seem to be experiencing a connection timeout. It can be all sorts of reasons. It might just work if you try again later. However, there is no reason to enable all the repositories. It will cause a lot of unnecessary processing and traffic. I suggest you restore the default repository configuration using the following command:
          su - root
          wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-ol6.repo \
          --output-document /etc/yum.repos.d/public-yum-ol6.repo
          yum clean all
          yum makecache

            Your path is not valid. The public-yum server only supports http, not https. Hope that helps.
