hi Roko-


I am trying to install Oracle 9ir2 on a red hat 9 box. Wanted to see if I could seek your help on a dead end I am running up against.


I downloaded the iso images for 2.4.20-20.8 from RH website and upgraded kernel to 2.4.20-20.9.


I was following the Roko's instructions on O'Reilly and installed the folowing packages from the cds:
gcc-3.2.2-5
cpp-3.2.2-5
glibc-devel-2.3.2-11.9
binutils-2.13.90.0.18-9
compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm
compat-libgcj-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm
compat-libgcj-devel-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm
nss_db-compat-2.2-20.i386.rpm


Roko mentioned that I should install the following precompiled packages from Jason's website (got the i686 packages wherever possible):
glibc-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
glibc-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i686.rpm
glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
glibc-debug-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
glibc-debuginfo-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
glibc-debuginfo-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i686.rpm
glibc-debuginfo-common-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
glibc-devel-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
glibc-profile-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
glibc-utils-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
nptl-devel-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i686.rpm
nscd-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm


I was able to install most packages except:
glibc-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i686.rpm
glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
glibc-utils-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
glibc-debug-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm


glibc-utils-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm AND glibc-debug-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm ARE DEPENDENT ON glibc-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i686.rpm DEPENDENT ON glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm.


So far so good.


When I try to install glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm it says glibc-common-2.3.2-11.9 required by glibc-2.3.2-11.9 (installed). So I am at a dead end as both those packages are installed.


So finally I tried the runinstaller w/o the 4 packages:
glibc-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i686.rpm
glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
glibc-utils-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm
glibc-debug-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm



The installer ran but got stuck immmediately at 'Installing Java Runtime Environment' and did not proceed anymore. Would there be any suggestions you might be able to offer on how I need to proceed or do differently.


Would it help to try and install this on the Fedora disto. Would it be essentially similar procedures?


Really your help in pointing me in the right direction. Not a hard core user of Linux yet. Trying to get there.


Thanks a lot and really appreciate your help.

    When RPMS install is done run as oracle:
    $make -f $ORACLE_HOME/network/lib/ins_oemagent \
    install
    This time it's going to be OK.
    $agentctl start
    won't fail anymore

    Sorry Sir, your stuff works:

    But intelligent agent still failes to start:
    $agentctl start
    Should this patching be applied only before runIstaller ?

    I guess reference regarding Jason's website may be ignored. Through my experience,time consuming successful rpmbuild step won't help any way due to version of glibc: 2.3.2-11.9
    If I am wrong about this, please advise.
    Mixing i386 and i686 rpms in one upgrade
    doesn't look for me as the right way to go,regardless it could be a solution.
    The final drawback will be: missing "Intelligent agent" up and running
    What will affect Events&Jobs in manually configured OEM console. However, cron facility and shell scripting will be still available :)

    I was having the same problem, but it worked when I installed the 4 packages in one command:

    rpm -Uvh glibc-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i686.rpm \
    glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm \
    glibc-utils-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm \
    glibc-debug-2.3.2-27.9.oracle.i386.rpm

    Hope that helps
