Oracle 9.2.0 install always failes at 61% linking

Hi Folks
I have gone through document 201023.1
I have the kernel configured appropriately I have added in the links
cd /usr/lib
ln -s /usr/lib/libX11.3 libX11.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXIE.2 libXIE.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXext.3 libXext.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXhp11.3 libXhp11.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXi.3 libXi.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXm.4 libXm.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXp.2 libXp.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXt.3 libXt.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXtst.2 libXtst.sl

java1.3 is installed

and I have tried with java 1.4 just in case

CLASS_PATH is not in the environemtn variables for my oracle user

It does not ask me to run rootpre.sh and I cannot find the file on the CD's

Every time it gets to 61% in the linking stage it fails any ideas ?

Are there any good messages in $ORACLE_HOME/install/make.log?

Java 1.4 is not certified for Oracle as far as I know, it will probably cause more problems than it will solve.

1) Do you have all the java patches requires for your OS at http://www.hp.com/go/java ?

2) Do you have adequate space in the disk location for ORACLE_HOME

3) Check the install guide, I think your PATH is a little short. There needs to be the ability to get to HP libraries and compilers.

I use Oracle 8.x but here is my path for my oracle install user.

$ echo $PATH
/oracle/product/8.1.7:/oracle/product/8.1.7/bin:/usr/bin:/opt/ansic/bin:/usr/ccs
/bin:/usr/contrib/bin:/opt/mx/bin:/opt/hparray/bin:/opt/nettladm/bin:/opt/upgrad
e/bin:/opt/fcms/bin:/opt/pd/bin:/opt/resmon/bin:/opt/ignite/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/us
r/contrib/bin/X11:/opt/scr/bin://opt/perl/bin:/usr/sbin/diag/contrib:/opt/aCC/bi
n:/opt/langtools/bin:/opt/perf/bin:/opt/OV/bin/OpC:/opt/imake/bin:/opt/sec_mgmt/
spc/bin:/opt/sec_mgmt/bastille/bin:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/netscape:/opt/graphics/co
mmon/bin:.:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/oracle/dba/bin

As you see, mine is a little more extensive.

I'm attaching a copy of oracle's preinstallation check script. It checks kernel path and other issues. You might need to get one for 9.2 from oracle though.

Re: Oracle 9.2.0 install always failes at 61% linking

hi,

i had a similar problem some times back and am just wondering....

did you launch the installation using a relative or full path?

You should launch the installer using the full path!
e.g.

$/cdrom/cdrom0/runInstaller

i have seen the installation crashing several times because of this.

Re: Oracle 9.2.0 install always failes at 61% linking

Hi,

linking failure is due to kernel parameters have not been set properly.

Install recent patch bundle and follow this URL:
