Have you installed Oracle using procedure described in #18391, particularly
was it linked against compat-glibc?
I read about you in another bugs and you say the same to all.
I sorry to say it not work.
I am following these bugs as well. The linking against glibc-compat works for the apps but is a totally bogus solution as far as i'm concerned. Has
anyone been able to isolate why the new glibc fails? Is there a version that we can move to that does work? As i have stated in my other bugs i have
updated it is crucial that RedHat 7.x work with Oracle. You need the kernel 2.4.1 support of journaling filesystems, raid (working raid), and smp support
to run any good database. Redhat 6.2 just doesn't cut it.
this is a workaround to the technet oracle linux

8.1.x on Linux, READ THIS

I have received so many emails lately that I
thought it would help to
re-post this under a different topic to make it
easier to find.
If you're having trouble with Oracle 8.1.x on any
version of Linux that
uses glibc version 2.2, try this and see if it
solves your problem:
The problem is that Oracle 8.1.x needs glibc
2.1.3. It will link without
error with glibc 2.2, but when you try to run
dbassist or create a
database from scratch, there are problems
(dbassist hangs, "End of file
on communication channel", etc.)
Here is a step-by-step process for getting Oracle
8.1.6 or 8.1.7 working
on systems with glibc 2.2 (don't bother with
8.1.5 if you can help it):
1. Install the compat-glibc RPM for 2.1.3.x
2. cd to the directory where compat-glibc
installed the files (for me it's
3. Copy the following files to $ORACLE_HOME/lib:
For me, several of these are symbolic links, so
you'll need to copy the
target of the symbolic link and rename it to the
link name when you copy
it to $ORACLE_HOME/lib.
For example, if ls -l shows:
ld-linux.so.2 -> ld-2.1.3.so
libdl.so -> libdl.so.2
libpthread.so -> libpthread.so.0
Then you will:
cp ld-2.1.3.so $ORACLE_HOME/lib/ld-linux.so.2
cp libc-2.1.3.so $ORACLE_HOME/lib
cp libdl.so.2 $ORACLE_HOME/lib/libdl.so
cp libpthread.so.0 $ORACLE_HOME/lib/libpthread.so
4. Create a file in $ORACLE_HOME/lib called
libc.so with the following
contents (as a single line):
GROUP ( <OH>/lib/libc-2.1.3.so
Substitute the value of $ORACLE_HOME for <OH> and
the location of the
compat-glibc directory for <CL>. For example:
My $ORACLE_HOME is:
(Notice the use of the OFA standard? Do yourself
and others a favor -
follow the standard. If you don't know what OFA
is, please see the
Oracle Administrator's Guide for UNIX.)
and my compat-glibc directory is:
so the GROUP line looks like this for me:
This is all one line.
5. cd $ORACLE_HOME/bin
6. Run the following command from the UNIX
All of the Oracle software, including the
assitants, will work fine now.
I have used this technique for RedHat 7.0 with
the 2.2.16 kernel, as well
as the 2.4.0 and 2.4.1-pre11 kernels.
Thanks to Richard Rankin for this simple and
reliable method (there are
others, but they are not as clean).

Eventhough, I did all the above, I am unable to relink oracle, it fails.
Oracle relies on compatibility of object files with is *not* guaranteed. So
they have some way to work around the problem. These methods are all done by
Oracle, it's their problem, and as far as I know they document it. Closing this
