We would like to install 11gR2 on RHEL6.4.
My question is that can we install oracle database in one partition including datafiles, control files , log files and any other files in one partition instead of other partitions like /u02 or /u03. We would like to use one partition /u01 for everything. Please give me what is tha best practices and how i can do that.you are free to install what you want where you want to do so; such as everything under /u01

All of my servers have a /u01, a /u02, and an /oradata. /oradata is further divided like -- /oradata/hrtest, /oradata/fintest, /oradata/hrdev, etc, etc. In that example, /oradata/hrtest is mounted to a seperate partition (actually a whole seperate lun) from /oradata/fintest. And both are seperate partitions (luns in my case) from the root, where /oradata lives.
You are free to create any directory structure you like, and mount any directory or sub-directory or sub-sub-directory to its own partition. Oracle only knows file and directory names. The mounting of devices to those directories is a few layers of abstraction away from oracle.
What problem are you trying to address by keeping everything under /u01?
Currently, only 220.127.116.11 is certified on Linux 6.x - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/relnotes.112/e23558/toc.htm#CHDFHIEA
18.104.22.168 is only available on My Oracle Support (https://support.oracle.com), access to which requires a paid support contract with Oracle.
If you do not have access to 22.214.171.124, then you will have to use Linux 5.x (5.8 is recommended)

I do not recommend installing on anything later than 5.8.
