Red Hat 9:
Red Hat 9 includes the Native POSIX Thread Library (NPTL) which is an improvedimplementation of POSIX threads for Linux. But using NPTL will cause severalproblems for Oracle applications. Note that Oracle9i has not been certified on Red Hat 9!So to fix this problem, you can set the environment variable
to 2.4.1,which means that the old "Linuxthreads with floating stacks" implementation will beused. Otherwise the Oracle installer
will hang, the DatabaseConfiguration Assistant
won't start etc.; seeOracle Installation Errorsfor moreinformation. To see where this environment variable can be set, seeSet OracleEnvironments. For more information on
, seeRed Hat Linux 9Release Notes.
NOTE: Before you install Oracle9iR2, make sure that you first read the informationabout the error message "
Error in invoking target install of make file/u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0/network/lib/ins_oemagent.mk
" in theOracle Installation Errorssection!
Red Hat 8.0:
The only problem I experienced with Oracle 9iR2 (9.2.0) on Red Hat 8.0 was:
"Error in invoking target install of makefile/u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0/ctx/lib/ins_ctx.mk"
But this does not necessarily mean that you won't see other problems described here. SeeOracle Installation Errorsfor more information.
