Description Sean Brown 2002-11-21 21:00:51 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 

Description of problem:
I am installing Oracle8i on my RH 7.3 systems, i know that its not certified to 
run, but it will, if I install the compat-glibc and install Oracle before 
running up2date and upgrade the glibc packages. It appears that the compat 
packages do not make the proper calls to the glibc2.2.5-42 package that is now 
on the RHN for an update.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install compat-glibc from the RH 7.3 CD
2.Run up2date and update to glibc-2.2.5-42
3.Run the script compat-glibc installed to /usr/i386-glibc21-linux/bin
4.Run the Oracle Installer
5.Patch the Oracle_Home with Oracles
 stubs patch for glibc2.2
6.run dbassist to create a database - reports "ORACLE NOT AVAILABLE" indicating 
bad linking.	

Actual Results:  Can not create a database, several 0 length files similar to 
installing Oracle8i without the compat-glibc packages, database creation 
assistent reports ORACLE NOT AVAILABLE

Expected Results:  dbassist should create a database with no problems

Additional info:

I have installed Oracle 8i on Red Hat 7.3 before with no problems before the 
glibc2.2.5-42 package was released.

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-07 13:31:19 UTC
compat-glibc was not doing any calls to the main glibc.
Anyway, RHL 7.3 is now not supported any more.
