    Instaling 9i on Linux

    hi
    i have been working in oracle in windows environment for a long time but now i m switching to Linex...
    first problemi m facing is installation of oracle 9.2 server....
    i tellu all the steps i did

    first i created a user "salman" as oracle administrator...i gave him full rights on "/usr" asi hve decided to install

    oracle.....if i need any more permisions then plz tell me
    now i run the universal installer(i didnt set any environmet variable...are these necessary??)
    first window that appears when we run universal installer is about installation source and destination directory...
    the defaule home name is OUIHome but i changed it to "ORAHOME92" same like windows..and i chose the home directory

    "/user/oracle"....next dialogue boxes that appear are not much different from windows so no problem here..now when it just

    starts the installation it give me following error
    ****************
    Error in setting permisions of file/directory
    /home/salman/jre/1.1.8/LICENSE

    HELP RETRY CANCLE

    ****************

    so kindly tell me whats the problem..what permisions should i set for which user....

    another thing about deinstalling on LINUX.....we have registry on windows so we remove entries of oracle from there manually

    if we want to deinstall...what do we do here on linux

    On Linux you don't have a registry. Just delete the user and directory that you install oracle. You might have to delete the oratab file.

    Hope this help

    A linux user does not need 100% access to /usr.What you have done is not recommended at all.

    Before visit all the fancy websites read the installation guide. In linux we ose Oracle Flexible Architecture (Directory Hierarchy). /user/oracle is not definitely an acceptable ORACLE_HOME

    Uninstall you use the installer and not delete manually as someone else said. You must keep your oraInventory clean, it's Oracle's own registry to track Oracle installation in any server and it's important to keep it clean because patches depend on this registry.

    First things first, do not use /usr for installing Oracle. Create a seperate filesystem or directory say /oracle for installation.

    Secondly after creating the user salman did you give ownership (ie execute this command as root user... chown -R salman:dba /home/salman) for home directory to salman?

    And follow the installation guides strictly from the link that have been given above as installation on Linux is not an easy one for first timers.

    and BTW he is PANDO not PENDO
