PostPosted: Mon Nov 17, 2003 12:04 am    Post subject: Installing Oracle 9i How To Reply with quote

After a lot of research I was able to get Oracle 9i to install successfully on Gentoo.

This is a summary of the extra little steps that I ended up following to get it to work. Thanks to all the people that provided the necessary clues.

I hope this helps.

I found this this guide a big help
http://www.puschitz.com/InstallingOracle9i.shtml

After downloading the software and extracting the software.

1. downgraded to an earlier version of binutils

Code:
emerge /usr/portage/sys-devel/binutils/binutils-2.13.90.0.18-r1.ebuild


After the install upgrade to again by emerge -u binutils

2. run the following script as root (thanks to funeagle)

Code:
#! /bin/bash
                                                                                                                                               
# This is the root script
                                                                                                                                               
# Creating Oracle User Accounts
groupadd dba  # group of users to be granted with SYSDBA system privilege
groupadd oinstall     # group owner of Oracle files
useradd -c "Oracle software owner" -m -g oinstall -G dba,users,audio oracle
echo "oracle user added, complete password"
passwd oracle
                                                                                                                                               
# Setting Shared Memory
echo "2147483648" > /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax
cat /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax
                                                                                                                                               
# Creating Oracle Directories
mkdir /opt/oracle
mkdir /opt/oracle/product
mkdir /opt/oracle/product/9.2.0
chown -R oracle.oinstall /opt/oracle
                                                                                                                                               
mkdir /var/oracleDB
chown oracle.dba /var/oracleDB
chmod 755 /var/oracleDB
chmod 777 /var/tmp #the listener needs access to /var/tmp
                                                                                                                                               
# Setting temp Swap Space if need
#cd /opt/oracle/
#dd if=/dev/zero of=orclswap bs=1k count=900000
#chmod 600 orclswap
#mkswap orclswap
#swapon orclswap
                                                                                                                                               
echo -e "\a"
                                                                                                                                               
echo "I needed to emerge /usr/portage/sys-devel/binutils/binutils-2.13.90.0.18-r1.ebuild"
echo "to do the install but upgrade to latest binutils when finished"
                                                                                                                                               
echo "Log on now as oracle using su - oracle"


3. run the following script as oracle (thanks again to funeagle)

Code:
#! /bin/bash
                                                                                                                                               
# This is the oracle user script
                                                                                                                                               
echo "# Set the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL environment new kernels" >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
echo "# Use the "Linuxthreads with floating stacks" implementation instead of NPTL:" >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
echo "export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1" >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
                                                                                                                                               
echo "# Oracle Environment" >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
echo "export ORACLE_BASE=/opt/oracle" >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
echo "export ORACLE_HOME=/opt/oracle/product/9.2.0" >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
echo "export ORACLE_SID=oracleDB" >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
echo "export ORACLE_TERM=xterm" >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
# export TNS_ADMIN= Set if sqlnet.ora, tnsnames.ora, etc. are not in
# $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin
echo "export NLS_LANG=AMERICAN;" >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
echo 'export ORA_NLS33=$ORACLE_HOME/ocommon/nls/admin/data' >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
echo 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib' >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
echo 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib' >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
echo "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH" >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
                                                                                                                                               
# Set shell search paths
echo 'export PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/bin' >> /home/oracle/.bashrc
                                                                                                                                               
echo -e "\a"
echo "restart shell! & run install"


4. su - oracle N.B. the - is important and run the installer

Code:
su - oracle

/somedirectory/Disk1/runInstaller


this is what I used my installation

- What would you like as the base directory (Inventory Location): /opt/oracle/oraInventory
- UNIX Group Name (permission for updating Oracle software): oinstall
- Full path name for Oracle Home: /opt/oracle/product/9.2.0
- Oracle Database directory: /var/oracleDB/oradata
- standard database

5. As the installer proceeds you make get this error (I did)

Quote:
"Error in invoking target install of makefile /opt/oracle/product/9.2.0/ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk"


Edit the file $ORACLE_HOME/ctx/lib/env_ctx.mk, go to "INSO_LINK =", and add a "$(LDLIBFLAG)dl" to the line and save it.

Here is the full line with the added "$(LDLIBFLAG)dl" flag:

INSO_LINK = -L$(CTXLIB) $(LDLIBFLAG)m $(LDLIBFLAG)dl $(LDLIBFLAG)sc_ca ... and so on

and press Retry


6. The install should complete OK

6a. However I needed to add the following sym link so that dbstart would work

Code:
ln -s /opt/oracle/admin/oracleDB/pfile/initoracleDB.ora.1011200321914 /opt/oracle/product/9.2.0/dbs/initoracleDB.ora



7. Following is scripts that I have modified to start and stop the oracle

If you have a problem creating the 'starter datbase' you can either
Code:
#touch /etc/rac_on      thanks to MadEagle

or you can edit
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbca like so
Quote:
#if [ -f /etc/rac_on ]; then
# Run DBCA
$JRE_DIR/bin/jre -native -DORACLE_HOME=$OH -DJDBC_PROTOCOL=thin -mx64m -classpath $CLASSPATH oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.Dbca $ARGUMENTS
#else
# Run DBCA
#$JRE_DIR/bin/jre -DORACLE_HOME=$OH -DJDBC_PROTOCOL=thin -mx64m -classpath $CLASSPATH oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.Dbca $ARGUMENTS
#fi

Great job!

Just a few comments on the FAQ:

1. The creation of a separate swap file is not necessary as long as you have a large enough swap partition.

2. ORACLE_TERM is not necssary

3. NLS_LANG is not necessary unless your settings is different from the default. Besides, NLS_LANG should be on the following format:
NLS_LANG=american_america.we8iso8859p1
The first part, american, indicates the language of error messages. The second part, america, indicates the date and time format and sort order. The last part is the characterset used, here we8iso8859p1. See the Oracle Globalization Guide for other values for the variable. (The documentation is part of the CD set)

4. If you don't set NLS_LANG, you can also drop ORA_NLS33.

5. The connection manager is not necessary unless you use the connection manager to pass through a firewall or where you have a multitude of Oracle databases and you are using some form of single sign on.

6. I would recommend starting the Agent as it is used by Enterprise Manager and used to monitor and to submit jobs.

Just a minor add-on that helped me:

If you want to use the graphical admin tools (like dbca) you have to create the file /etc/rac_on with
Code:
touch /etc/rac_on
, otherwise the call to Oracles own JRE segfaults.

Hi, all!

Im trying to install 10g on Gentoo (running AMD64-Linux on a SunFire). Does anyone know, if/when the AMD64 version of 10g will be available?

Meanwhile I tried 9.2.0.4(AMD64) and 10.1.0 (32bit). Both report the same error on startup of the OUI. It complains about missing libXp.so.6. The strange thing is, I have LD_LIBRARY_PATH set to "/usr/lib:/usr/X11R6/lib64:/usr/local/lib", deleted and recreated ld.so.cache and checked > 10 times, that libXp.so* exists.

Still, both OUIs complain:
Code:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /tmp/OraInstall2004-09-08_03-17-15PM/jre/lib/i386/libawt.so: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Any hint is apreciated,
TIA
Gnork

I have tried 10g on a AMD64 Gentoo and get the same problem as gnork:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /tmp/OraInstall2004-09-08_03-17-15PM/jre/lib/i386/libawt.so: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

First, I didn't have the library libXp.so.6. When I looked for it, it seems to be on the xprint package, so I tried to install it. It failed with a compilation error.

Searching through debian forums I found a patch that makes xprint 0.9.0 compile for AMD64, aply it and got it compiled and installed.

I assumed that this would solve my problem, but it doesn't. I still get the UnsatisfiedLineError although I am sure that I have libXp.so.6 on the library search path.

Did anyone manage to install any version of Oracle on Gentoo AMD64?

I have installed the 32 bit compatability packages on my gentoo and the problem whith the exception:
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /tmp/OraInstall2004-09-08_03-17-15PM/jre/lib/i386/libawt.so: libXp.so.6

has gone away. I can now run the installer.

The info was on the Gentoo FAQ for amd64 on this same forum.

Regards,

Javier

There was a linux mag, that had a good tutorial for install 9i, and it took care of this error:

Quote:
"Error in invoking target install of makefile /opt/oracle/product/9.2.0/ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk"

When I find in my mess of a desk, I will post it.

By the way, good howto.

the file seems to be in a right place
but it's not working :(

ok i finally solved the problems myself :D

two things were crucial:

THREADS_FLAG=native

and

libcwait.c ftp://people.redhat.com/drepper/libcwait.c
gcc -shared -o libcwait.so -fpic -O2 libcwait.c
$THREADS_FLAG=native LD_PRELOAD=/ora/Disk1/libcwait.so ./runInstaller
$THREADS_FLAG=native LD_PRELOAD=/ora/Disk1/libcwait.so dbca

greetz & have fun with Oracle :D

I'd like to note about problems I had during installation.
All Configuration Assistants failed to start with such error:
Code:
jre was not found in /opt/u01/oracle/jre


The sollution was to create in /opt/u01/oracle/oracle.swd.jre/bin/i386/native_threads/jre
dirrectory a soft link from jre on java:
Code:

$ cd ${ORACLE_HOME}/oracle.swd.jre/bin/i386/native_threads/
$ln -s java jre


That is all. May be this is a known problem, but I takes me a lot of time to find the sollution.

Is your jre configured correctly with java-config?

AFAIK Oracle comes with it's own jre (IBM?), so I do not need to install java at all.

Here on the forums there were advices to unset JAVA_HOME and other java realted environment variables to avoid some problems. So I simply did not install java at all.

So what do you mean by your question?

BTW with sun-jdk installed I had the same result.
