I prefer and recommend using Oracle on a supported version, like Suse Entreprise 9, because the installation is fair. The Installer does complain on SLES9 what is missing.
Ok, I just received a brand new notebook, I decided to go to Suse 10, and, Ô Miracle, the installation was pretty easy! I surely installed C++ development tools (how can I survive without a C compiler), but I missed the libaio and libaio-devl. Well, I installed it afterwards and my create database statement succeeded.
Sincerly, installing Oracle 10gR2 on Suse 10 is no longer a pain as it was before with non-supported versions.
I am so happy
Well, my gnome evolution ms-exchange connector is still not working, but this I will fix asap
