Requirements for Installing Oracle 11gR2 64-bit (AMD64/EM64T) on SLES 11 (Doc ID 881044.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Linux x86-64


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 SLES 11, 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.

This procedure is meant for those planning/trying to install Oracle Server (or above) on SLES 11 on the 64-bit (x86-64) platform.
