Description braccos 1999-05-05 18:40:44 UTC
I installed Oracle on the Red Hat 5.3. The server was working. I migrate to Red Hat 6.0 and I re-installed also the Oracle server same version (8.0.5). I relink all the code, but when I launch all the executables, I obtain a core dump due to a segmantation fault. I think i depence from the libraries, nothis is changed with Oracle, the only thing that is changed is the kernel and I suppose something in the libraries that you have changed, because I tryed also another test. Before to relink I asked only to install the binaries, without to relink, all the executables were working, after relink core dump again. I think there is a bug somewhere, I suppose in the libraries because it was working on the 5.3 Let me know if it is possible to fix the problem, at the moment I had to switch to another distribution, until you don't fix this problem, I need Oracle in my office but it's impossible to install it using red hat 6.0. Let me know when you'll fix the problem. Regards stefano Bracco UNIX System Manager at ITER JWS Garching firstname.lastname@example.org

Oracle8 does not work with glibc2.1, which Redhat 6.0 uses. This is actually Oracle's problem, not RedHat's (since they appeared to have used incorrect practices regarding variables that were well documented before O8's release for Linux). At this point, you'd probably want to use O8i anyway, which they should be shipping for Linux in May/June, and I think will work with glibc2.1. If you want to use O8 for now, you should use RedHat 5.2, which works fine. It isn't wise to upgrade major servers (especially databases) just for the sake of upgrading, and especially less than a week after the product has been released and hasn't been kicked around yet. I run Oracle8 on Redhat 5.2 sans problem and don't plan to upgrade to 6.0 because there's really no need to. If it ain't broken... You should be addressing this issue in the Linux forum at: http://technet.oracle.com/ although a number of people have already posted this, so it's just a matter of waiting for a patch for O8, or forget O8 altogether and go with O8i, assuming it actually works with glibc2.1.

*** Bug 2776 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** Oracle 8.0.5 will not install with Redhat 6.0. It installs great with 5.2. I do not see a item above that I can pick to tell of such. I picked aboot. This does not mean there is a problem with aboot. Thanks, Steven
Comment 3 Cristian Gafton 1999-07-28 05:41:59 UTC
The Makfiles for Oracle should be modified to use the compilers and linkers provided as par of the compat-* packages. Oracle is trying to link glibc-2.0 object files on a glibc-2.1 system and that will fail, since only the shared libraries are guaranteed compatibility between different compiler/libc combinations. But using the compilers provided in the compat-* packages should do the trick.
