Last updated on MAY 04, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 9.2.0.4 to 9.2.0.8 [Release 9.2]
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Database Service - Version N/A and later
Oracle Database Cloud Exadata Service - Version N/A and later
Oracle Database Backup Service - Version N/A and later
Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service - Version N/A and later
Linux x86
Oracle Server Enterprise Edition - Version: 9.2.0.4 to 9.2.0.8
Intel Based Server LINUX


Purpose

This note explains the requirements that need to be met for a successful installation of Oracle RDBMS release 9iR2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES 3 (update 1 or above), Linux x86.

Because of Java prerequisite difficulties and other issues, 9.2.0.1 for x86 base release software has been replaced with 9.2.0.4 for x86 base release software. Oracle Support very strongly recommends that you begin with the 9.2.0.4 for x86 base release software.

It is NOT the purpose of this NOTE to repeat every "how-to" step that is presented in the 9iR2 Installation Guide manual. 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 adequate covered in Chapter 2 "Oracle Database Preinstallation Requirements" of the 9iR2 Installation Guide manual.

You can download the 9.2.0.4 base release software from following URL. But you require a valid "edelivery" account for download. http://edelivery.oracle.com/EPD/Download/get_form?egroup_aru_number=4985895

Scope

This procedure is meant for those planning/trying to install Oracle Server 9.2.0.x on RHEL 3 on the x86 (aka i386, i686) platform.

******************************************************************************
NOTE: This article is NOT relevant to Linux x86-64 (AMD64). The requirements
for installing 9.2 64-bit on Linux x86-64 are covered in <Note 308588.1>
