This note explains the requirements that need to be met for a successful installation of Oracle Database 12.1 release on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0 or Oracle Linux 7 (or higher 7.x version) 64-bit (x86-64)
It is NOT the purpose of this NOTE to repeat every "how-to" step that is presented in the Oracle Database 12.1 Installation Guide. For example this NOTE does not include how to create the Linux OS account named "oracle", nor does it cover how to set environment variables. Both are adequately covered in "Oracle® Database Installation Guide 12c Release 1 (12.1) for Linux"
This procedure is meant for those Planning / Installing Oracle Database 184.108.40.206 on RHEL 7.0 on the 64-bit (x86-64) platform. Since it is the expressed goal to keep Oracle Linux (OL) functionally IDENTICAL to RHEL, this NOTE is also completely applicable to 64-bit (x86-64) OL 7.0
This procedure is not meant for those Planning / Installing Grid Infrastructure (GI) or any other Oracle products.
