Hi,
I have installed Linux 9 on my laptop and was trying to install Oracle 8.1.7.
I have extracted the tar file into /home/oracle/src/Disk1 and when I run ./runInstaller then I get the following message.

Initializing Java Virtual Machine from
../stage/Components/oracle.swd.jre/1.1.8/1/DataFiles/Expanded/linux/bin/jre.
Please wait...
/home/oracle/src/Disk1/stage/Components/oracle.swd.jre/1.1.8/1/DataFiles/Expanded/linux/lib/linux/native_threads/libzip.so:
symbol errno, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file
libc.so.6 with link time reference (libzip.so)
Unable to initialize threads: cannot find class
java/lang/Thread
Could not create Java VM

I don't know how to even proceed with such an error.
I never worked on a Linux much.

My .bash_profile file has the following contents.

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin
export PATH
unset USERNAME
ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle; export ORACLE_BASE
ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/8.1.7; export
ORACLE_HOME
ORACLE_SID=ora1; export ORACLE_SID
PATH=$PATH:/u01/app/oracle/product/8.1.7/bin; export
PATH
CLASSPATH=.:/u01/app/oracle/product/8.1.7/jdbc/lib/classes111.zip;
export CLASSPATH

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
umask 022
ORA_NLS33=/u01/app/oracle/product/8.1.7/ocommon/nls/admin/data;
export ORA_NLS33
NLS_LANG=american; export NLS_LANG

I have copied a file jdk118_v3-glibc-2.1.3.tar.bz2 to /usr/local directory and extracted it to /usr/local/jdk118_v3 directory.
Do I need to give CLASSPATH as /usr/local/jdk118_v3?

I would appreciate if any one can give feedback in this.
Thanks in advance
