    Hi Guys,

    I want to install Oracle 8.1.7 on RedHat Linux 6.2 (intel). For this I installed RH 6.2.. I have downloaded Oracle 8.1.7 and jdk118_v3-glibc-2.1.3.tar.bz2 and installed in /usr/local and created a link like

    #tar xvIF jdk118_v3-glibc-2.1.3.tar.bz2
    #ln -s /usr/local/jdk118_v3 /usr/local/java

    After this I went to /mnt/cdrom
    $cd /mnt/cdrom/install/linux
    $./runInstaller
    I got error like
    [oracle@database linux]$ ./runInstaller
    The Java RunTime Environment was not found at /bin/jre. Hence, the Oracle Universal Installer cannot be run.
    Please visit http://www.javasoft.com and install JRE version 1.1.8 or higher and try again.
    : No such file or directory
    [oracle@database linux]$

    But I am able to java,jre and javac programs...

    Where the runInstaller program looking for JRE ?


    Please help me........
    Thanks

    I installed 9.2 successfully on RH7.3 but when I try to run dbca I get this error
    Code:
    jre was not found in /usr/oracle/ora92/oracle.swd.jre/bin/i386/native_threads/jre
    Any idea?

    Sanjay

    PS /usr/oracle/ora92 is my ORACLE_HOME

    Hi,

    It's been awhile I have installed Oracle on Linux. Suggest you visit this site:

    http://jordan.fortwayne.com/oracle/

    The author has nicely documented howtos on Oracle/Linux and it works all the time. Btw, I recall, JRE for Linux should be downloaded from http://www.blackdown.org or things have changed on 8.1.7?

    Regards,
    bt

    hi bt,

    I have followed the http://jordan.fortwayne.com/oracle/ docs

    I have downloaded the require jdk118_v3 from http://www.blackdown.org/ only


    But it is giving error like that... I am not understanding
    where runInstaller scripts looks for JRE and ..

    I have set JAVA_HOME too...



    Its beating me...

    Laxman,

    What does your $PATH look like? Checkout for DBA's Unix account echo $PATH. It should also point to /usr/local/
