Hi all,


I am getting the following error when i am trying to install the oracle software.


[oracle@localhost oracle]$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda9 3.8G 1.7G 1.9G 46% /
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
/dev/cdrom 629M 630M 0 100% /mnt/cdrom
[oracle@localhost oracle]$
[oracle@localhost oracle]$
[oracle@localhost oracle]$ pwd
/home/oracle
[oracle@localhost oracle]$ cd /mnt/cdrom
[oracle@localhost cdrom]$ ls
ship_9204_linux_disk1.cpio
[oracle@localhost cdrom]$ ./runinstaller
-bash: ./runinstaller: No such file or directory
[oracle@localhost cdrom]$

I unzipped the downloaded oracle software files using gunzip command in the path /u01/app/oracle/orainstall.After that when i try to unpack the files using cpio ship_9204_linux_disk1.cpio.cpio ,it is taking more time.Is that neccessary to unpack the files (oracle software )?


As blackswan told me in the previous post that OS and oracle which im using is obsolete and unsupported. i just want to confirm with u all that the steps which i have tried in the oracle installation is correct else correct me if i went worng somewhere.


Please help me on this.


Regards,
Balaji

You do not understand Linux or what you are doing.
The comparison is that you are a child with a loaded pistol.
You don't know how to control the tool you have.

That's the reason you should read Oracle's document as more as better.

runinstaller is not the file to call Oracle installation. This is runInstaller. However, you must do much before install Oracle.

Yes.

[oracle@localhost cdrom]$ ls
ship_9204_linux_disk1.cpio
[oracle@localhost cdrom]$ ./runinstaller
-bash: ./runinstaller: No such file or directory

Again,
Apply some common "visual" sense.
The output of ls shows only one .cpio file.
And you calling ./runinstaller ( meanwhile, it should ./runInstaller) which does not exist at all.
What do you expect?

Simple and small mistake. ./runinstaller is wrong (case senesitive). So at the prompt type ./runInstaller and press enter.
