Problem with oracle 8.1.7 installation on workstation

Hallo,
I have a workstation s700 c3000 with hp-ux 10.20 and I'm trying to install oracle 8.1.7.
When I launch the oracle installer I have the following error:

$ Initializing Java Virtual Machine from /tmp/OraInstall/jre/bin/jre. Please wait...
/usr/lib/dld.sl: Can't find path for shared library: liblwp.1
/usr/lib/dld.sl: No such file or directory
I tried to copy liblwp.1 from another server but it doesen't help.
Please help me.
Thanks in advance.

I think that your problem is that this Oracle code is intended for 32-bit 11.x.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Also you can not be in the directory with the RunInstaller when you launch it. Move to the root "/" and absolute path the installer. /CDROM/RunInstaller.

When the Installation window is invoked by the jre process you can see the library files in the /tmp/OraInstall/jre/lib/PARISC.
So it will depend on the architecture and processor bit support.

Clay has pointed that!

Hi,

I don't think the workstations will support oracle.

Hi there.
Pls check the Oracle documentation on Oracle Technet ( Install and Upgrade guide ).

http://technet.oracle.com/documentation/oracle8i.html

This will show the requirements for Oracle 8.1.7

Re: Problem with oracle 8.1.7 installation on workstation

My TPW, I just tried this in our 10.20 K220 an got the same error.... so
1) 8.1.7 wont run in 10.20 enviromment upgeade to 11 or 11i, then do the following.
2) 8.1.7 comes in two versions for 32 bit and 64 bit processors. Make sure you have the correct binaries for your machine. I have found that 32 will run on 64 but it wont work the other way around.
3) make sure you have set all the kernel parameters sugested in the install guide.
4) Make sure you have setup the correct groups/users as specified in the install guide and that you have the correct permissions.
5) run the installer as the oracle user.

Re: Problem with oracle 8.1.7 installation on workstation

Hi,

The reason for your errors during installation is Oracle8i releases - that is Oracle 8.1.x are supported and released on HP-UX 11.00 onwards.

So if you want to install Oracle 8.1.7, you have to upgrade your OS from 10.2 to 11.0 /11i
Never give up, Keep Trying
