We have an application that needs to have the Oracle client installed in the same Oracle Home as the database software. Somehow, I managed to do it with Oracle, but the client installer for Oracle won't let me. It says there's already Oracle software in that home and won't let me move on.

How do I do this?

This is Oracle on Red Hat 7 Linux.
