# I have installed Oracle 10 on Solaris 10 (x86).

I try to access it - "sqlplus system/manager" and get the following error:

... Oracle's support of Solaris x86 has been "interesting" over the last 10 years.

First they support it ... then don't ... then say they support it ... but maintenance and patchsets are really really slow coming out.

Do you mean x86 32 bit or x86 64 bit?

Have you patched it up to the latest available patchset ( or patchset update )? Getting Oracle maintenance beyond the base release requires a support contract of course.

# I'm just trying to play with Oracle, and I haven't got to 1st base
yet. I hope to one day create a table and maybe even insert some data :-)

Well the linux side ( come to the dark side ) is always an option. Solaris "should be" a whole lot better soon now that Oracle has purchased Sun ...

64 bit is the way to go regardless of linux/solaris religious wars ... you just need some relatively recent hardware to support it. Received on Fri May 13 2011 - 16:49:01 CDT
