Purpose

This note explains the requirements that need to be met for a successful installation of Oracle Database 18c release On Oracle Linux 7 (or higher 7.x version) or Red Hat Enterprise 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 18c 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 18c for Linux"

Scope

This procedure is meant for those Planning / Installing Oracle Database 18c on Oracle Linux 7 (or higher 7.x version) or RHEL 7.0 (or higher 7.x version) 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.
