For Oracle8i, you must install Java Runtime Environment.(orainst is replaced by GUI)
Download JRE, http://www.blackdown.org
select libc5 version for RH 5.2 and glibc version for RH 6.0 and later.
Copy JRE to /usr/local
Uncompress and create a symbolic link to /usr/local/jre.
# cd /usr/local
# tar zxvf jre_1.1.6-v5-glibc-x86.tar.gz
# ln -s jre116_v5 jre
Place /usr/lcoal/jre/bin into PATH
PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/jre/bin; export PATH
