Hi,
the installation guide ;-)
--> permissions, kernel requirements, ...

good luck,
Thierry.
All unix flavours are exactly the same . . . . . . . . . . for end users anyway.

Re: Oracle 8.1.7 installation


From an HP-UX point of view you need the latest ld (linker) patch; PHSS_22478

We had to install it for 8.1.7 on all our 11 boxes.

Im from Palmerston North, New Zealand, but somehow ended up in London...

Re: Oracle 8.1.7 installation

Hello Vincenzo,

first get your box patched: PHSS_22514 is the current
patch for the linker (ld) and is needed (and working - did
use it today).
Then allocate the disk space: ~2GB for the codefiles!
and mount those filesystems.
Then create your local oracle admin user account:
groupadd dba
useradd -g dba -m oracle
Then create this user's ".profile" and include the env
variables needed by/for the installation:
export ORACLE_HOME=/your/moint/dir/for/oracle/codes
export ORACLE_SID=YOURSID
Then (as root) pfs_mount the CD-ROM (its a "pfs-rrip")
and enter "xhost +" - yes, X-windows is a MUST.
As "oracle" do "cd" to the CD-ROM mount-dir and set
your $DISPLAY: export DISPLAY=YOUR-DISPLAY:0.0
then execute the ".runInstaller" - it starts itself into the
background. As this takes some time to show anything
on your screen, enter "cd" in the terminal window to
return to "/home/oracle" - needed later on , when you
have to change the CD!
Answer the install dialog's questions, and when asked
for the second CD-ROM, (as root) "pfs_umount" the
old CD-ROM first, then "pfs_mount" the new one,
then continue (most find it much easier to "pfs_mount"
both CD-ROMs concurrently - but that needs two drives,
or to copy the second CD (only ~300MB) to a local LV).
Takes about two hours on a D330 to finish...

HTH,
Wodisch
