    I'm setting up a test instance on a new install of Red Hat 6.1. I have downloaded the Red Hat Guide from Metalink and followed all of the steps.

    I am getting this error when I get to the point of installing.

    /usr/local/jre/bin/checkVersions /tmp/ldd.out.888:permission denied

    The following information is related to the issue.

    (1) JRE 116V5 is installed and has a symbolic link
    (2) all of the aforemention steps in the guide have been completed and proofed

    Anyone run into this problem!?

    Sorry, i solved this one on my own..

    Problem Description

    You are trying to start the installer for 8.1.5 on Linux by either running
    /<cdrom>/runInstaller or /<cdrom>/install/linux/runIns.sh.

    You receive the following error:

    /usr/local/jre/bin.. /bin/checkVersions: /tmp/ldd.out.3321: Permission denied

    Solution Description

    This error occurs due to the libc version of the JRE (Java Runtime Environment)
    being used on a glibc based Linux distribution.

    In other words, when you downloaded the JRE 116_V5 from [url]http://www.blackdown.org[/url], you
    chose the libc verion of the runtime instead of the glibc. Most of the newer
    Linux distributions have converted from the older libc standard to the glibc

    To correct this, you will need to download the glibc version of the JRE

    and recreate the softlink from /usr/local/jre to the correct glibc JRE.

    I was just about to mention the glibcpatch for Oracle installation on Linux 6.1.
