R12 Installation: OEL 5.4 libdb.so.2
Comment on this Topic


One common post-installation issue is an error caused by libdb.so.2. Oracle tries to access /usr/lib/libdb.so.2 which doesn't exist in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4. The Oracle pre-requisites for R12 installation specify creating a symbolic link prior to installation. This required creating a symbolic link as shown below:

root@localhost ~]# ls /usr/lib/libdb.so.2
ls: /usr/lib/libdb.so.2: No such file or directory
[root@localhost ~]# ln -s /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2.0.0 /usr/lib/libdb.so.2
[root@localhost ~]# ls /usr/lib/libdb.so.2
/usr/lib/libdb.so.2

If you started the rapid installation and forgot to do this, exit the installation. Create the symbolic link and then start the rapid installation in restart mode.
