Installing the AS 10g and the 10g Database on Fedora Core 2

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

Aug 11,  2004
John Garmany recently published instructions for installing the Oracle Application Server 10g on Fedora Core 2 Linux. 

Core 2 uses the new 2.6 kernel which handles memory differently than previous kernels and users have had problems installing Oracle products for testing.

Detailed instructions are here:

The instructions detail installing a middle tier.  You can not install the infrastructure tier unless you install the metadata repository in a current database.  This is because the Database Configuration Assistant can not create the 9i database on Core 2 to support the metadata repository.

Also available on is the instructions for installing the Oracle Database 10g on Fedora Core 2. 

I have tested both and they work well.  However, after installing the 10d database you must undo the trick to set DISABLE_HUGETLBFS=1 or the web based OEM will not function correctly.

After installing the database:

rm oracle
mv oracle.bin oracle

Then add the below item to the env script for the oracle user;


Now OEM will work properly.

Remember, Oracle does not support it's products on Fedora Core Linux.
