Oracle Application Server 10g (10.1.2) Requirements for Linux : OEL 5 and RHEL 5 [ID 564174.1] Modified 09-MAR-2010 Type ANNOUNCEMENT Status PUBLISHED

In this Document What is being announced? What do you need to do? Follow Operating System Requirements for OEL 5.x or RHEL 5.x Follow Installation Requirements for OEL 5.x or RHEL 5.x Known Issues References

Applies to:
Oracle Forms - Version: 10.1.2.0.2 Oracle Reports Developer - Version: 10.1.2.0.2 Oracle Discoverer - Version: 10.1.2.0.2 Oracle Fusion Middleware - Version: 10.1.2.0.0 to 10.1.2.3.0 Linux x86 Linux x86-64 Oracle Application Server 10g Enterprise Edition - Version: 10.1.2.0.0 to 10.1.2.3.0

What is being announced?
This document provides supplemental instructions and requirements for installing Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2.0.2) on the Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) 5.x or Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.x operating systems. It is necessary to then apply Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2, Patch Set 3 (10.1.2.3), to comply with certification provided from the following location:

Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2.0.2) Certification Information [http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/files /as_certification_r2_101202.html]

Oracle has tested this combination and provides this document to list additional requirements, complementing the Linux Installation Guide and Release Notes:

Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2.0.2) Release Notes and Installation Guides [http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B14099_19/getstart.htm]

Important:

As per the footnotes within Table 1 of the OTN Certification Guide, the following installation types for the Oracle Application Server 10g Infrastructure are not supported on OEL 5.x or RHEL 5.x:

- Identity Management and Metadata Repository (co-located Infrastructure) - Metadata Repository (non-colocated with a 10.1 DB) This is because the Oracle Database Server 10g release 1 (10.1) is not certified on these platforms. If requiring these Infrastructure installation types with an Oracle Database, the recommendation is to install Oracle Database Server 10g Release 2 (10.2). After this the Metadata Repository Creation Assistant (MRCA) version 10.1.2.0.3 can be run, followed by an Identity Management installation type. (Alternatively, the MRCA 10.1.4.0.1 and Identity Management 10.1.4.0.1 may be installed for the non-colocated Infrastructure with Oracle Database 10.2). Therefore, when using Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) media, only the middle-tier and Identity Management installation types are certified/supported.

In addition to initial installation requirements, the Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2, Patch Set 3 (10.1.2.3) is required to be fully certified on OEL 5.x or RHEL 5.x. Oracle Application Server 10g version 10.1.2 may come in various distributions, including standalone Oracle HTTP Server, Forms & Reports, and Oracle Web Cache. These are not certified with this document unless the main Certification Guide (above link) is stating this. Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 10.1.2.0.0 or 10.1.2.0.1 versions are not supported with Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) 5.0 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.0. It is recommended that version 10.1.2.0.2 be obtained and installed. Note:433061.1 How to Obtain Application Server Media, Patchsets, and Patches

What do you need to do?

Follow Operating System Requirements for OEL 5.x or RHEL 5.x
1. The following packages (or later versions) must be installed on your Linux x86 or Linux x86-64 system: binutils-2.16.91.0.5-23.4 gcc-4.1.0-28.4 gcc-c++-4.1.0-28.4 glibc-devel-2.4-31.2 libgcc-4.1.0-28.4 libstdc++-devel-4.1.0-28.4 libstdc++-4.1.0-28.4 make-3.80-202.2 compat-db 4.1.25-9 Important:

https://support.oracle.com/CSP/main/article?cmd=show&id=...

On future RHEL 5.x versions, these packages may be cumulative to newer packages. Consult operating system vendor documentation for details. The Oracle Application Server 10g is a 32-bit application to be installed on either Linux x86 or Linux x86-64. There are 32-bit installation requirements on Linux x86-64 in order allow compatibility with the 32-bit Application Server product. Please see the Installation Guide for other general platform requirements. This document does not replace the Installation Guide and Release Notes, as its only stating the newer and specific operating system version requirements. On Linux x86-64, ensure 32-bit packages are in place and always use 32-bit shell emulation with the "linux32 bash" command before running the installer and any other Oracle Application Server commands or scripts.

2. Ensure that libXp has been installed. The package libXp was not installed in RHEL 5/OEL 5 with default RPM packages, so it will need to be installed manually. In RHEL 4 this file was provided by the package xorg-x11-deprecated-libs which is installed with default package installation but this is not the case for RHEL5/OEL5 and is now provided with a different rpm, the libXp rpm. Install the package libXp by the command: # rpm -ivh </path/to/>libXp.<version>.i386.rpm Note: libXp.so.6 can be found by installing the package /Server/libXp-1.0.0-8.1.el5.i386.rpm under Disk3 of the OEL5 media. Issue the following to confirm: % rpm -qa --queryformat "%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE} (%{ARCH})\n" | grep libXp [ Reference Note:443617.1 ]

3. The following are two requirements and their locations to obtain them from Oracle:

openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL5.i386.rpm [http://oss.oracle.com/projects/compat-oracle/dist/files/Enterprise_Linux /openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL5.i386.rpm] xorg-x11-libs-compat-6.8.2-1.EL.33.0.1.i386.rpm [http://oss.oracle.com/projects/compat-oracle/dist/files/Enterprise_Linux/xorg-x11-libs-compat6.8.2-1.EL.33.0.1.i386.rpm]

4. When installing Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2.0.2) within the OEL 5.x or RHEL 5.x operating systems, you will need to create the following symbolic link as root prior to doing any installations:

# ln -s /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2.0.0 /usr/lib/libdb.so.2

3 sur 7

10/03/10 00:33

https://support.oracle.com/CSP/main/article?cmd=show&id=...

If an error occurs stating that libdb.so.2 already exists, it may be from a previous 10.1.3 installation. In this case, either move the file for backup and create the symbolic link or skip this step to see if the following problem occurs.

Without this symbolic link, httpd will give the following error: httpd: error while loading shared libraries: libdb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory With this link in place, httpd should start up successfully in OEL 5.0 or RHEL 5.0 Note: On some OEL installs, libgdbm.so.2.0.0 may not exist. You can check the following way: # cat /etc/enterprise-release Enterprise Linux Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2 (Carthage) # ls /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2.0.0 If you are missing the 32-bit version, it can be installed using gdbm.i386 0:1.8.0-26.2.1. Alternatively, Patch 6078836 can be used instead, as it was uploaded to complete a 10.1.3 certification.

5. The installation of Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2.0.2) requires the correct openmotif package to be installed on your OEL 5.x or RHEL 5.x box. Without the correct package, you will run into installation errors for those components that require openmotif (such as reports and forms). You may download the RPM package from the following location:

[http://oss.oracle.com/projects/compat-oracle/dist/files/Enterprise_Linux /openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL5.i386.rpm] As root, you can install this RPM package by issuing the following command: # rpm -i openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL5.i386.rpm

Follow Installation Requirements for OEL 5.x or RHEL 5.x

1. Before installing Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2.0.2) , apply Patch:6687768 in order to start the installer. If you do not apply this patch, pre-req check for the OS Version will fail when you invoke the runInstaller. 2. Follow all other instructions from the Installation Guide and Release Notes. This Metalink Note is only for specific OEL 5.x and RHEL 5.x requirements.

The Known Issues below are for issues that have been found to occur during the installation, and require steps to resolve. Depending on your installation options, review the Known Issues to prevent the errors from occurring.

3. Apply Patch:5983622, which is the Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2, Patch Set 3 (10.1.2.3). This is required in order to be fully certified on OEL 5.x or RHEL 5.x. More information regarding 10.1.2.3 can be found in Note:329361.1, Table 2. Note:329361.1 Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) Support Status and Alerts --See: "Table 2: Oracle Application Server Patchsets"

Known Issues

1. When performing any Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) installation, a pop-up error message box may appear indicating "opmn not started". The error message box appears just before the root.sh phase of the install. From the command line, issue the command "opmnctl status" and it should show that opmn is up and running. Hence, you can ignore this pop-up error message and continue with the installation.

2. Apply Patch:6690831 if you are performing an Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) installation which includes Discoverer. Without this fix, the installation will fail during the OPMN Configuration Assistant phase because it cannot start up the Discoverer processes.

oraInstall<date_time>.err No checks to execute for entry point:oracle.business.intelligence. as_BIServicesPlease check the input file:/tmp/OraInstall<date_time>/ias_prereq.xml java.io.FileNotFoundException: /u01/patch/disco_chromavis04/Disk1/stage/Patches/oracle.java.javavm.visiorb /3.4.0.0.0c/1/DataFiles/lib.jar (No such file or directory) ... Skipping `systeminfo.h': not a file or directory /u01/oracle/disco/bin/dis51pr: error while loading shared libraries: libpthread.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The Discoverer processes fail to start because there is an LD_ASSUME_KERNEL setting that needs to be removed in opmn.xml for Discoverer. The issue can be fixed following the below steps: Download Patch:6690831 Unzip it to a working directory Run the shell script provided in the patch After shell script runs successfully, go back to OUI install

and press Retry on the OPMN Configuration Assistant

3. Apply the Patch:6706051 if you are performing an Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) installation which includes Oracle Certification Authority (OCA). Without this fix, the installation will fail during the Oracle Certification Authority Configuration Assistant phase. The issue can be fixed following the below steps: Download Patch:6706051 Unzip it to a working directory Run the shell script provided in the patch Extra step script missed: chmod 700 cminst After shell script and chmod, go back to OUI install and press Retry on the Oracle Certification Authority Configuration Assistant 4. Any installation of Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2.0.2) on OEL 5.x or RHEL 5.x in which Reports is getting installed will fail with reports relinking errors Example output from installActions log: /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to `__stack_chk_fail@GLIBC_2.4' /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to `__fprintf_chk@GLIBC_2.3.4' /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to `__sprintf_chk@GLIBC_2.3.4' collect2: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [rwrun] Error 1 End output from spawned process. ---------------------------------Exception thrown from action: make Exception Name: MakefileException Exception String: Error in invoking target 'proxy_install runm_install server_install cgi_install cli_install conv_install qv_install' of makefile '/opt/oracle/Forms10gR2/reports/lib/ins_reports.mk'

In order to prevent this, download and apply the required RPM listed below: [http://oss.oracle.com/projects/compat-oracle/dist/files/Enterprise_Linux/xorg-x11-libs-compat6.8.2-1.EL.33.0.1.i386.rpm] As root, you can install this RPM package by issuing the following command # rpm -i xorg-x11-libs-compat-6.8.2-1.EL.33.0.1.i386.rpm After the RPM, is installed, you will also need to override the /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6 with the one from /usr/X11R6/lib/libXtst.so.6. As root, issue the commands: # mv /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6 /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6.ORG # ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libXtst.so.6 /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6
