I'm trying to install Oracle Database 11g on Ubuntu 14.04. At the middle of executing ./runInstaller I'm getting following message saying about missing prerequisites.

enter image description here

This says make is missing but, When I run 'make -v' as root or oracle, it gives following output.

GNU Make 3.81

Also even though it says OS kernel parameter semmni not set to 128, when I run "/sbin/sysctl -p" as root, it gives following which says semmni set to 128.

kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 256
kernel.shmall = 2097152
kernel.shmmni = 4096
kernel.shmmax = 1073741824
net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 9000  65500
net.core.rmem_default = 262144
net.core.rmem_max = 4194304
net.core.wmem_default = 262144
net.core.wmem_max = 1048576
fs.aio-max-nr = 1048576
fs.file-max = 6815744
vm.hugetlb_shm_group = 1001

What is the issue here?
