Installing Oracle on RHEL
UPDATE: thanks to Alex Gorbachev for pointing out that Oracle has a public yum for OEL which is compatible with REHEL and Oracle has Oracle certified packages:

A small but time consuming LINUX issue:
When installing on RHEL for both 10 and 11, I get errors that the following libraries are missing
The message is a little misleading as both the i386 and x86_64 versions of libaio have to be intalled
The last time I installed Oracle on LINUX was almost a year ago and it took me several hours to track this down. Since then that test machine has been blown away and a long with it my copies of these libraries. Today I tried to install Oracle 11 on LINUX and again I spent another hour or two trying to track these down.
You should just run something like:
yum install sysstat-7.0.2
This is fedora but seems to work on RHEL. I’m doing some quick tests and hacking around, so I just want to getting up and running asap. For production use, it would be wise to get yum registered and working correctly.
I tar’ed up and gziped the rpms here http://oraclemonitor.com/ftp/
in the file oracle_fed_rpms.tar.gz
