Re: Upgrade from 8.1.7.4 to 9.2

You can get this info at metalink.oracle.com, but in short, I do not have the specific patch list. What I can tell you though, is that if you patch your system after the upgrade of oracle, you may need to relink your oracle installation (which is fairly benign)

Good luck

hi,
You can also run the installprep.sh script that is provided by Oracle.
-
PURPOSE
Script to verify that the system is configured correctly according to the Installation Guide. The output of the script will report tasks that need to be performed before successfully installing Oracle 9.x DataServer (RDBMS).
-
SCOPE & APPLICATION
Anyone planning to install the Oracle DataServer (RDBMS) on an HP those that are not familiar with operating system configuration.
-
hope this helps too!
