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

Posted by Peter Marklund on
I just installed Oracle 8.1.7 on RedHat 7.2 and was able to do this by exactly following Brunos instructions at with one crucial addition:

Before running the runInstaller script I downgraded the Binutils:

rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps binutils-

After the Oracle installation was done I upgraded them again:

rpm -Uvh binutils-

Thanks for an excellent document Bruno!
