Oracle 10g on Hoary notes
* Debian specific oracle guide
* RH specific walkthrough
Put in the 10g DVD and had permission denied errors when trying to runInstaller from /media/cdrom. Didn’t quite figure this out as the file did have exectution rights. Ended up copying the db directory from the installation CD to the ~oracle homedir.
“useradd -c “Oracle software owner” -g oinstall -G dba oracle” didn’t seem to create a homedir. Created one after by hand.
I hate Gnome terminal. So slow.
That terminal bell is so annoying.
xhost + didn’t work. Ended up just logging in again as newly created oracle user.
Had to install extra gcc package. Why does Oracle compile stuff on installation?! Those guys are “on crack”.
