Oracle 12c Pre-requisites

without comments

Installing any Oracle database is tedious, but the installing the prerequisites can be especially tedious. This post tries to simplify the process by creating a single prereq.sh file for all the prerequisite libraries, except for the oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall, which you should run after the prerequisite file.

The prerequisite file should contain the following:

yum install -y binutils \
               compat-libstdc++-33 \
               compat-libstdc++-33.i686 \
               gcc \
               gcc-c++ \
               glibc \
               glibc.i686 \
               glibc-devel \
               glibc-devel.i686 \
               ksh \
               libgcc \
               libgcc.i686 \
               libstdc++ \
               libstdc++.i686 \
               libstdc++-devel \
               libstdc++-devel.i686 \
               libaio \
               libaio.i686 \
               libaio-devel \
               libaio-devel.i686 \
               libXext \
               libXext.i686 \
               libXtst \
               libXtst.i686 \
               libX11 \
               libX11.i686 \
               libXau \
               libXau.i686 \
               libxcb \
               libxcb.i686 \
               libXi \
               libXi.i686 \
               make \
               sysstat \
               unixODBC \
               unixODBC-devel \
               zlib-devel \
               zlib-devel.i686

You can run the prereq.sh script as the root user like you would source an environment file:

. ./prereq.sh

Dependent upon what you installed when creating the Oracle Linux 7.1 operating system, you should see something like this in the output console:

sh-4.2# . ./prereq.sh

After you have installed the prerequisites, you install the oracle-dbms-server-12cR1-preinstall library as the root user. You run the command as the root user like this:

yum install -y oracle-dbms-server-12cR1-preinstall

You should see the following when it’s successful:

After running the oracle-dbms-server-12cR1-preinstall library, you can navigate through the Applications, Sundry, and Users and Groups to see the following dialog:

OracleUserCreated

It’s hard to tell from the GUI the oracle user’s group. You can find oracle primary user’s group by checking the /etc/passwd file. You will find that oinstall is the primary user’s group.

As always, I hope this helps those trying to install an Oracle Database 12c instance. Please post a comment if you have a better way to load the pre-requisite packages.
