I have just put Oracle Enterprise Linux on my PC and am starting to install Oracle R12.

I have download all the relevant CDs etc.
One question is it neccessary to burn them on to CD?
Or when I start the install can I ask it to look at where the CDs are stored on my PC so I don't have to waste loads of CDs?

As far as I can tell, installer doesn't care whether installation files are on a CD / DVD / hard disk. Oracle software on my computer was installed directly from hard disk.

Thanks for that.

So when it askes me for the mount
Do  you use AutoMount to mount/umount the media y/n [y]/

Should I say no and then mount where files are?

I wouldn't know; I don't use Linux. Hopefully, someone else will be able to assist.

hi - it is actually very awkward to build an R12 staging area without having the actual DVDs. You have to mess about with renaming directories all the time. If I were you, I would definitely burn them. Well worth the cost of te few DVDs.

Thanks for that. Do they have to be burned to DVD or can they be burned to CD?

That would depend on size those files occupy. If they fit CD, burn them onto CD. Otherwise, use DVD.

I found the solution it is in Metalink 406138.1

If you want to unzip all the files at once to the staging area try this
ls *.zip | xargs -n1 unzip -d /u01/StageR12

Much simpler than running adautostg.pl, nice one.

You can unzip all files at once to create the stage.

Here is the command that I use:

for z in *.zip; do unzip -o $z -d /home/Oracle/stage; done;

You can see the command in action here:
