Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Installing Oracle 8.1.7 on RedHat 7.2

Posted by Don Baccus on
The main thing you have to do, supposedly, is to run their patch files after installing to deal with glibc version issues.

I've not gotten that far with 8.1.7, but I know others who have (, for example).

I think Oracle's Linux support pretty much sucks, and don't understand why.  It (or a *BSD variant if they decide they don't like Linux) is their best bet vs. MS SQL server + NT.
