  1. Thanks for the guide, worked like a charm.
    The single problem was that the packages of required software were newer than the Oracle’s requirements.
    I choose to skip it and it worked like a charm.
    I faced the same problem with ins_emagent.mk file, I edited during the install and retry it and it worked.

    Thanks again for posting the guide :)

  2. Thanks for the guide. The /ins_emagent.mk issue was certainly solved by your fix. But Little further I had the net configuration assistant failed to install.
    Kind of stuck there.

    Thanks anyway…

    • Tk, I never use the net configuration assistant. I didn’t notice it failing during the install. I just ran it manually from the command line as the oracle user, and it popped right up. Can you give it a try, just typing netca as the oracle user?

  3. Hi
    Thanks. Finally I did install.
    The problem is 11gr2 and fedora 14 were both 32 bit. But I tried 11gr2 and fedora 14 both with 64 it worked.

  4. Thanks alot for this guide. Installation went smoothly with it. I resolved the linking issue during the installation (while the error popup was on the screen) and hit retry and it worked afterwards.

  5. It really worked for me. Thanks a lot, you saved me lots of efforts. Keep it up.

    By the way, it would be great if you give explanation for the change also, it will help newbies understand the issue and it won’t be just a change in a file for them.

  6. Thank you for the guide.extremely helpful! I have noticed one issue with the changes that the semmns and semopm revert back to their original values as soon as the system reboots.

    Here is the sample of the error caught by the installer after the reboot. I ran it to simply make sure that all parameters are set according to installer’s requirements and was able to produce failure on these two (along with pdksh) every time after a reboot. output of log file for your review:

    [root@DFORCL CVU_11.]# more orarun.log
    This is the log file for orarun script
    Timestamp: 032011131952
    Response file being used is :/tmp/CVU_11.
    Enable file being used is :/tmp/CVU_11.
    Setting Kernel Parameters…
    semmns in response file:32000
    semmns for current session:100
    semmns in /etc/sysctl.conf:100
    semopm in response file:100
    semopm for current session:32
    semopm in /etc/sysctl.conf:

  7. […] I have confirmed that the exact steps previously documented for Oracle 11g Release 2 ( on Fedora 14 work for Fedora 15 release. You can find the steps HERE […]

  8. i m installing 11g 64 bit
    but when i enter this command

    make -f ins_emagent.mk “agent” from oracle user.

    it says “make: ins_emagent.mkagent: no such file or directory
    make: ***no rule to make target ‘ins_emagent.mkagent’. Stop.

    what should i do? :(

    • Make sure to set the ORACLE_BASE and ORACLE_HOME environment variables before running the make command. Also be sure to be in $ORACLE_HOME/sysman/lib/ dir first.
