CentOS4.5 Download Files for Oracle 11gR1

Postby fatboysam » 2008/02/01 02:39:56


This is my first entry so hoping someone can assist. I want to run this under VMware Fusion on my Apple Macbook Pro

I want to install Oracle 11gR1 on CentOS4.5 (32 bit) and just want to know:

a) the url where I can download CentOS4.5 OS (already have Oracle 11gR1 for Linix-x86)

b) can anyone who has already achieved this, let me know how much disk space I might need to allocate for my VM?

c) are there any good links for beginners for installing CentOS4.5 and the basics of the OS?

A) http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/4/isos/
B) I have Oracle 11g running on production server under CentOS 4.5
The disk space you need really depend on the DB size , i would recommend at list
5G for the OS and 10G for /opt (where oracle is installed usually)
C) http://www.centos.org/docs/4/4.5/rhel-i ... ulti-en-4/
and for installing Oracle (its for 10g but nothing is really different in 11g)
