How neat is Suse!
I downloaded the DVD SLES10 on Novell.com. At the installation time, appart from Gnome, Development, X Window, there are a few new categories. One of them is called Oracle Database, and guess what, it installs all what I needed for Oracle. It creates an oracle account, with oinstall as primary group and dba as secondary group, it sets usefull things like ORACLE_HOME.
Ok, let’s unlock the account
chltlxlsc1:~ # usermod -s /bin/bash oracle chltlxlsc1:~ # passwd oracle Changing password for oracle. New Password: Reenter New Password: Password changed.
Ok, let’s install. SLES10 is not recognized as a certified OS yet. The DISPLAY thing has to be manually set too.
oracle@chltlxlsc1:~> ./runInstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs Starting Oracle Universal Installer... Checking installer requirements... Checking operating system version: must be redhat-3, SuSE-9, redhat-4, UnitedLinux-1.0, asianux-1 or asianux-2 Failed <<<< >>> Ignoring required pre-requisite failures. Continuing...
this is one of the friendliest installation I have ever made…
