Trying to install Oracle DB 11g EE on RHEL 7. Installed the necessary packages as mentioned in the below link (Section 6.1).

But I am stuck at the package check step, which fails because it couldn't find earlier versions of the packages.

Ex of one of the package error:

![Error Snippet of one particular package]

  • Expected Value: libaio-0.3.105 (i386)

Also, when I try to install the required package, the repo doesn't find those versions. If I ignore, I am getting the below error.

![Snippet: Stuck here]

  • Error in Invoking target "client_sharedlib" of makefile '<path>/product/11.2.0/db_1/rdbms/lib/ins_rdbms.mk'.

Stuck here. Please help.

List of other packages getting failed:

  • libaio-0.3.105
  • compat-libstdc++-33-3.3.3
  • compat-libstdc++-33-3.3.3 (twice)
  • libaio-devel-0.3.105
  • libgcc-3.4.6
  • libstdc++-3.4.6
  • unixODBC-2.2.11
  • unixODBC-devel-2.2.11

  • According to the documentation 11g is supported on RHEL 4 and RHEL 5. If you want 11g you'll need to install an older version of the OS, or do a lot of Linux hacking. Alternatively you could install Oracle 12c, which is supported on RHEL 7 (11g is now an unsupported version, although I appreciate that probably doesn't bother you).

From My Oracle support, Doc ID 1304727.1

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 - only

  • Oracle Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel:3.8.13-35.3.1.el7uek.x86_64 or higher
  • Red Hat compatible kernel: 3.10.0-123.el7.x86_64 or higher

So, unless you are installing, you will have compatibility issues on RHEL7. Either install and up on RHEL7, or use a lower compatible version.

More information:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.x - Database and higher

  • Red Hat kernel 2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64 or later
  • Oracle Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK R1) 2.6.32-100.28.5.el6.x86_64 or later
  • So, does WCS on WLS supported by 12c DB ?

  • @PrabhuR Could you please elaborate, I didn't get you. Jul 6, 2015 at 8:26
  • If I install 12c version, will WebCenterSites on WebLogic Server be supportive?

  • @PrabhuR But how is this related to your original question? You should post a new question for weblogic server related. I have 12c installed on OEL7, I have no issues with weblogic, everything works fine. Jul 6, 2015 at 8:28
  • I tried version. Package checks went fine. But I am getting this error while installing: "Error in Invoking target "client_sharedlib" of makefile '<path>/product/11.2.0/db_1/rdbms/lib/ins_rdbms.mk' ". Please help.
