Requirements for Installing Oracle 11gR2 RDBMS on RHEL (and OL) 5 on AMD64/EM64T (Doc ID 880989.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 03, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1 and later
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server x86-64 (AMD Opteron Architecture)
Linux x86-64

Purpose

This note explains the requirements that need to be met for a successful installation of RDBMS release 11.2.0.x (a 1 DVD set) on RedHat 5.2 (or greater), 64-bit (x86-64).

It is NOT the purpose of this NOTE to repeat every "how-to" step that is presented in the 11gR2 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 11gR2 Installation Guide manual.

If you have a valid OTN account, you can download Oracle 11.2.0.1 software from here

Scope

This procedure is meant for those planning/trying to install Oracle Server 11.2.0.1.0 (or above) on Red Hat Server 5.2 (or greater) on the 64-bit (x86-64) platform. Since it is the expressed goal to keep Oracle Enterprise Linux functionally IDENTICAL to RHEL, this NOTE is also completely applicable to 64-bit (x86-64) OL 5.2 or greater.
