Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Problem with C libraries after downgrading to glibc2.3.2 for installing Oracle 8 on Redhat E3

Good question... Short answer is it's needed on our Linux box for compatibility with a database integration product.

Do you need to downgrade glibc to 2.3.2 for installing Oracle 9i ?



It's been 1.5 years since I last wrote my notes on Installing Oracle 8.1.7 on Linux, but maybe there's something in there useful to you.

I hadn't heard of anyone needing to downgrade anything in order to install Oracle 9i, as far as I knew such problems were restricted to 8i. As 9i starts getting old (relative to current Linux systems), maybe you will have to do something like that, but I don't know.
