Hi All,


I am Installing OEL 64 Bit Linux for R12.1.1.1.  I am using VMWare Workstation version 8.0.2


So Far,

1) VMWare Workstation Installation is done successfully.

2) VMWareTools Installation is done successfully.


During the preparation of R pre-requisites as per metalink note: 761566.1


One of the pre-reqs are openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL6.i686. my machine is 86x64.


When i try to install openmotif21. This has few dependencies but not able to find them.


[root@r12vison]# rpm -ivf openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL6.i686.rpm


error: Failed dependencies:

      libICE.so.6 is needed by openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL6.i686

      libSM.so.6 is needed by openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL6.i686

      libX11.so.6 is needed by openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL6.i686

      libXext.so.6 is needed by openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL6.i686

      libXp.so.6 is needed by openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL6.i686

      libXt.so.6 is needed by openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL6.i686



also when I try to install the xorg-X11 rpm

[root@r12vison]# rpm -ivf xorg-x11-libs-compat-6.8.2-1.EL.33.0.1.i386

I get the following error

error: Failed dependencies:

    libX11.so.6 is needed by xorg-x11-libs-compat-6.8.2-1.EL.33.0.1.i386

    libXext.so.6 is needed by xorg-x11-libs-compat-6.8.2-1.EL.33.0.1.i386



I checked my OEL64-Bit DVD for all these packages. I could not find them


From where can I download the RPM dependencies for Oracle Enterprise Linux Update 4 - 64 Bit. Please provide the URL location.



I have gone thru muthu's comments, which helps to resolve the open-motif package issue, but from where to download them.

    Use Oracle Public Yum repository and use Yum install command to installed required packages. See below for one of the example…



    For example:

    [Desktop]# yum install libICE.so.6

    Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, security

    public_ol6_UEKR3_latest | 1.2 kB     00:00    

    public_ol6_latest                                                                                                                                                             | 1.4 kB     00:00

    Hello Ajaz,


    Also make sure the OS meets all requirements of Note 761566.1 : "Oracle E-Business Suite Installation and Upgrade Notes Release 12 (12.1.1) for Linux x86-64"
