Re: oracle installation freezes at 85%

you need to check out lot more things.

1. Memory utilization at that time
2. check log file of oracle installation.
3. check dependency of linux packages
4. check the kernel parameters

Hi ahsan
>3 check log file of oracle installation.
how ? where and which files should i check ?

>4. check the kernel parameters
I have attached the /etc/sysconfig/oracle(installed by orarun rpm/script)
I have installed the orarun rpm from the installation media of SLES10 SP2
# rpm -qi orarun

Version : 1.9 Vendor: SUSE LINUX Products GmbH, Nuernberg, Germany
Release : 21.24 Build Date: Tue Apr 22 07:46:34 2008
Install Date: Thu Jul 3 13:03:01 2008 Build Host: rinck.suse.de

Packager : http://bugs.opensuse.org

Summary : An Environment for Running Oracle Products
Description :
This package creates the user and the groups for Oracle, sets the Oracle environment variables, sets kernel parameters to values
recommended by Oracle, and provides for utomated start and stop of Oracle components at system start and stop time. It also includes dependencies for other software packages needed to install and use Oracle, so that when you select this package the other packages are included automatically (when you install via YaST2) or that you are at least reminded to install them (when installing via the rpm command).
This package is not required for running Oracle but it simplifies things significantly.

You can edit all settings via YaST2.

Re: oracle installation freezes at 85%

hey

why you don't use 10gR2? you could also run the pre-install validate script. you can get this from metalink.oracle.com

Re: oracle installation freezes at 85%

apache installation is not necessary.

the log file is installation log. go to the /tmp file system and you can found the directories named Orainstall* type folders. here you can get the log files.
