    Unanswered: Does oracle 10g support fedora 9

    Hello,

    Today I was trying to install oracle 10g client on Fedora 9. But I am getting some errors. Please see it below,

    os version must be redhat -3, suse-9, redhat-4, unitedlinux-1,asianux-1 or asian ux-2

    Anybody is having any idea about this. Or Do I have any workaround for this problem.

    Thanks Best Regards
    Milind

    ./runInstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs

    or/and

    Modify database/install/oraparam.ini file and add "fedora 9" to "Certified Versions" section

    This workaround is not working on my environment.
    Eventhough I use -ignoreSysPrereqs command, I can see oracle is checking the system prereqs in the log file in /tmp folder.
    For finding out the certified version of Linux, I use the command as uname -a
    The Certified version row in oraparam.ini file looks like,
    [Certified Versions]
    Linux= Fedora 9, 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686,Linux IBTP11042 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686,Linux IBTP11042 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 #1, Linux IBTP11042 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 #1 SMP,redhat-3,SuSE-9,redhat-4,UnitedLinux-1.0,asianux-1,asianux-2
    [UnitedLinux-1.0-optional]

    Note: - I use all the combination for the vertified verison :-)

    Please let me know if I am on the right path

    best Regards

    Let's try this then

    In the /etc/redhat-release file, replace
    Fedora release 9 (Sulphur)

    with:
    redhat release 4

    But I am not sure if the installation will succeed.
    I installed Oracle 11g on fedora core 9 by replacing it with redhat release 5

    Yeah...Thanks for this suggestion.
    This solve the prerequsite problem..But now I am facing one strange problem. When I run the runInstaller using root ID. It says,
    user is root. Oracle universal installer can not run the installation using root ID.
    :directory not found
    And if I login as different user then it puts some java related errors
    Saying some library libXso.g not found...some sharing problem it says...
    I have JDK 1.6 installed on my system and I can find some folder named as jre1.4 in the oracle installer..Will it create any problem or I have some missing libraries on my workstation

    You may want to check your Linux installation to see if you have all the required packages installed:
