Just a note, to myself more than anything, about what extra packages are required by a 64 bit installation of Fedora Core 10, when trying to install Oracle 11gR1.
The installation I undertook was on a FC10 64 bit VM running under VMWare Server 2.0 running on top of FC10 64 bit OS.
Tim, as usual, has a lovely guide which told me almost everything I needed to know, however the guide says “If you are performing the 64-bit installation, make sure both the 32-bit and 64-bit libraries are installed.” rather than explicitly stating the packages for a 64 bit install. Until I tried to install Oracle 11gR1, I didn’t know what these were. The Oracle installer for 11g soon told me in the pre install checks it does, so I went about installing the following packages, in order:
That got me past the pre install checks of the Oracle installer and on to a successful install.
I’ve added the list to the comments on the guide Tim produced as well.
