Oracle Patch 4198954

Postby fxars » 2006/09/19 02:21:55

I'm trying to apply patch Oracle patch 4198954 to CentOS 4.3.

This consists of applying two rpm's supplied by Oracle:


When I run
sudo rpm -ihv compat-oracle-rhel4-1.0-5.i386.rpm
per the README.txt supplied the patch zip file, I get:

error: Failed dependencies:
openmotif21 is needed by compat-oracle-rhel4-1.0-5.i386
Suggested resolutions:

I've tried
sudo yum install openmotif21-
which got me a "no match for argument"

and variations, including plain
sudo yum install openmotif21

In that case, I simply got 404 errors from all the mirrors.

I've also tried downloading some OpenMotif rpm's from but that didn't work.

Anyway, I know that Motif Windows Manager is required for some variations of Oracle iAS (Application Server) so I figure someone else must have run into this problem.

Any hints?

Tried it on another machine in a different network. Looks like a firewall problem.

CSI cost my company $15,000 ,you don't expect someone to give you his CSI do you ?
If you are using the free edition you can install the latest version and migrate the DB ,
the documentation on that is very good .
