Thread: Installing Oracle 8.1.7 on Linux

    I have problem installing Oracle for Linux. The install process reports problems with linking some files (like net_client). So when the installations finishes, some programs like svrmgr or lsnrctl report missing libraries.

    I am running Red Hat Linux 6.2 and has all the OS software requirements that were mentioned in the Oracle Docs.

    Is this some known issue? How do I install it properly?

    create symlinks to dbora for the various runlevels by issuing the following commands:

    # ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/dbora /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K10dbora
    # ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/dbora /etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K10dbora
    # ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/dbora /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/S98dbora
    # ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/dbora /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S98dbora
    # ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/dbora /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S98dbora
