Oracle 11g2 Installtion on CentOS 5

Postby nieselfriem » 2012/01/27 13:57:54

The Oracleinstaller required some 32-Bit libraries like compat-libstdc++. But yum installed only the 64 bit libaries. If you try the command for example
Code: Select all
yum install libstdc++.i386
then you can see the error message:
Code: Select all
 No package libstdc++.i386 available


What can I do?

You could provide more information about your system by running "./getinfo.sh package" and showing us the output file.

The output file was longer than shown. The paste was truncated, and no need to nest the

Code: Select all
#  This is the default, if you make this bigger yum won't see if the metadata
# is newer on the remote and so you'll "gain" the bandwidth of not having to
# download the new metadata and "pay" for it by yum not having correct
# information.
#  It is esp. important, to have correct metadata, for distributions like
# Fedora which don't keep old packages around. If you don't like this checking
# interupting your command line usage, it's much better to have something
# manually check the metadata once an hour (yum-updatesd will do this).

Re: Oracle 11g2 Installtion on CentOS 5

A number of issues here.

First is that you are running an obsolete CentOS-6.0 installation, and not CentOS-5, so you are either in the wrong forum, or need to re-install with CentOS-5.

Oracle does not support their database on EL6 derivatives, last time I looked not even their own.

The 32-bit CentOS-6 package is libstdc++-4.4.6-3.el6.i686 - not i386. That can be determined by "yum provides libstdc++".

Beyond that, you have rather a mess with your repo configs. Apparently you have hand-configured rpmforgge (should be rpmforge) and epel repos as I see no -release packages for them. You have both of those mutually incompatible repos enabled without using yum-plugin-priorities and that is guaranteed to be problematic.

Sorry my english i not so good.

If I?ve understood you correctly, you?re saying that I can not install Oracle 11g2 on OS's like RHEL 6 ore CentOS 6 only on 5 Systems?

I won't say it can't be done but it is not supported. See the upstream publicity release. Some related links from a google on rhel6 site:oracle.com:
https://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread ... ID=2132161
https://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread ... ID=2199161
http://telinit0.blogspot.com/2010/11/rh ... 1g-r2.html

So, do you want to move this thread to a CentOS-6 forum and pursue it there, or stay here and do it on 5.7?
