Hi all,

After configuring linux for the installation of oracle 9i, i got struck up in the middle.


Through CD device i am going to install oracle on linux.
Files in the CD are zipped files.Before mounting CDROM and starting the oracle installation, i need to unzip the files using gunzip command and unpack using cpio.

My question is

1 Where to unzip and unpack the files?

2.where to Mount CDROM and start the installation ?

Please revert me with the answers.

Regards,
Balaji

This is my file system details.
[root@localhost root]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda9             3.8G  141M  3.5G   4% /
none                  369M     0  369M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda10            2.0G   33M  1.8G   2% /tmp
/dev/hda12            1.4G  1.2G  260M  82% /usr

I need atleast 2GB to unzip the files.so where to create a directory in the above file system.


[root@localhost root]# cd /dev/hda9
bash: cd: /dev/hda9: Not a directory

I am getting something like this ,when i try to create a directory in /dev/hda9 to unzip the files

>>bash: cd: /dev/hda9: Not a directory
You need to understand *nix a little more.
In simple words,
/dev/hda9 is not a directory.
The root directory '/' is mounted on it (your filesytem).
You may want to create a directory in '/' and unzip there.
something like /u01.
Look at the output of df.
filesystem /tmp is mounted on /dev/hda10
filesytem /user is mounted on /dev/dha12.

So login as root,
create a directory /u01
grant read/write priv on /u01 or /media to Oracle
unzip Oracle 9i.
