OTN Step-By-Step Guide to Installing 10g on Linux x86
October 18, 2004
Mark Rittman

Installation Guide: Oracle Database 10g on Linux x86: "This is the first in a series of guides that provide all the steps for installing the major components of Oracle 10g software on Linux. All three of the certified English-language distributions of Linux are covered in detail (Asianux is not covered), and the articles assume that inexpensive Intel x86 hardware is being used. The articles walk through the process of installation and configuration on commodity hardware for the purpose of evaluating the major Oracle 10g products.

The ultimate goal of this series is to walk through installing and configuring all of the components of a 10g Grid. Along the way, you will see how to install and configure a single instance Oracle 10g database (this article), a two-node Oracle RAC 10g database, all the major components of Oracle Application Server 10g and Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control.

This series will take the approach of offering the easiest paths, with the fewest number of steps, for accomplishing a task. This approach often means making configuration choices that would be inappropriate for anything other than an evaluation. For that reason, this series is not appropriate for building production-quality environments, nor does it reflect best practices.

The three Linux distributions certified for Oracle 10g covered in these articles are:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux  2.1
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
  • Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8

If you are new to Linux and/or Oracle, this first article is for you. It starts with the basics and walks you through an installation of Oracle Database 10g from the bare metal up." An excellent tutorial, including screenshots and step by step instructions, now available on OTN.
