Oracle 9i Redhat 7.2 Install - Net Configuration Assistant Hangs !

Post by swebb9 » Wed, 15 May 2002 08:28:47


Im installing oracle 9i on my redhat 7.2 box and everything works fine apart
from when the net configuration assistant runs. It sits on the listen and
never returns. I have to stop it and let the other tools continue. Any
idea's why this could be. Could it be something to do with my hosts.

Set as localhost.localdomain localhost hotrats hotrats

Hostname is hotrats

I set the database name and SID as seed.hotrats and seed.

Any idea's at all im stuck.



1. Trying to install oracle 9i on a Redhat 7.2 :-/

Hi there.

I'm writing my masters in databases right now, and I need to install
oracle 9i on my Redhat 7.2. This is the first time I'm installing oracle,
and I'm not doing that great. I've read installation files, oracle-HOWTO
and other stuff... but I can't get it working.

I have some questions.

1. Is it really necessary to change all those parameters in the kernel
that the installation file says? These shmmax, shmmin and so on. Three of
them, I can't even find in my /proc/sys/kernel directory. Note: My PC is a
PentiumII 350MhZ with 512MB RAM and 1,5GB swap.

2. I haven't installed blackdown as the installation file says I must. The
installation file says that I must install jdk1.3.1_01 AND blackdown JRE -
but oracle also comes with its own JRE. Why all three of them? Are they
really necessary?

3. During the installation I chose Standard edition - I don't want to
configure anything... First I just want it to run. I've set up some
environments for the user that is installating oracle (tcsh);

setenv ORACLE_BASE /usr/local/oracle;
setenv ORACLE_HOME $ORACLE_BASE/product/9.0.1;
setenv ORACLE_SID dia2;
setenv ORACLE_TERM xterm;
setenv ORA_NLS33 $ORACLE_HOME/ocommon/nls/admin/data;
set path = ( $path $ORACLE_HOME/bin $ORACLE_HOME/lbin );

When trying to install oracle 9i I get an error;
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lclntsh
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [wrap] Error 1

The oracle-howto says that this is easily corrected. I just need to put
$ORACLE_HOME/lib in my LD_LIBRARY_PATH... but as you can see above, I
allready have it. I even tested that it is there by having the runinstall
script echo the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable before starting the actual

So, what am I doing wrong? I have spend 3 whole days now... the error
comes after about 1 hour.. pretty annoying :-)

Please help.
