>Im, going to be moving a 220 GB database from HP-UX to Red Hat AS 3.0 running

Have you actually installed on Red Hat AS 3.0. It is pretty ugly, I refused to do the patches a metalink tar suggested, because they are absurd, and constitute a lack of support. With, at least the installer will run:


Operating System: Linux x86 Version Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES 3 
Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition Version 9.2 
N/A Version N/A 
Status: Certified 

Product Version Note:
None available for this product. 

Certification Note:

The following requirements are needed for a successful installation of Oracle 9iR2 ( on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 
1. Software: 
Linux kernel version would be 2.4.21-4.EL 
Glibc Version Number glibc 2.3.2-95.3 
Required OS Patches

- compat-db-
- compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.122
- compat-gcc-c++-7.3-2.96.122
- compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.122
- compat-libstdc++-devel-7.3-2.96.122
- openmotif21-2.1.30-8.i386.rpm
- setarch-1.3-1
2. Environment: Put gcc296 and g++296 first in $PATH variable by creating the following symbolic links. These are required for the relinking of some Oracle binaries (as root) % mv /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/gcc323 % mv /usr/bin/g++ /usr/bin/g++323 % ln -s /usr/bin/gcc296 /usr/bin/gcc % ln -s /usr/bin/g++296 /usr/bin/g++ hostname command should return the fully qualified hostname as shown below:
- % hostname
- hostname.domainname
If any Java packages are installed on the system, unset the Java environment variables, for example JAVA_HOME. The oracle account used to install Oracle, should not have the Oracle install related variables set by default. For example setting ORACLE_HOME, PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include Oracle binaries in .profile, .login file and /etc/profile.d should be completely avoided. 3. Other environment settings: For hugemem kernel install rpm setarch-1.0-2.i386.rpm or higher.
- % setarch i386
For uni, smp and boot kernel this step is not required. Define and export the environment variable LD_ASSUME_KERNEL before starting the install process:
- % export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19
Additional Installation Steps Open a new terminal window Apply bug patch 3006854 - to resolve libcwait symbol issue before invoking Oracle installer. After completing above steps start ./runInstaller from 9iR2 CD 1 from shell where you have defined above variable. You may get the following two errors: Relink error for - Click ignore and complete the install. Apply the patch for Bug 3119415 after the install is completed ctx relinking error in Click ignore. This is fixed by applying patchset The installation will continue without displaying further errors. ADDITIONAL NOTE For customers using asynch_io , apply bug patch 3208258. =============================================================== Ray Stell (540) 231-4109 KE4TJC 28^D ---------------------------------------------------------------- Please see the official ORACLE-L FAQ: ---------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe send email to: put 'unsubscribe' in the subject line. -- Archives are at FAQ is at -----------------------------------------------------------------
