Description Sean P. Kane 2003-02-13 00:10:49 UTC
Description of problem:
SuSE Linux provides an the 
as a way to properly and easily startup up Oracle once you have installed in on 
there Enterprise product. RedHat should make a similar RPM avaliable for users 
of RHAS. A version of this RPM modified to work for RedHAt is avaliable at: 
http://www.rst-consult.com/database/oraclerun9i.rpm and http://www.rst-

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

RHAS 2.1

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Without it getting Oracle to startup, even after a succesful install can be a 
bit painful.

Expected results:

With Oracle and Red Hat's partnerships and the purchase of RHAS, I expect as 
simplified and install as possible. A simple RPM like this makes life much 
easier when installing one or multiple systems.

Additional info:

It would be really nice to see this avaliable either on the CDROM or via 

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-13 00:15:06 UTC
This is something that really should be provided by Oracle with their setup.

Comment 2 Sean P. Kane 2003-02-13 00:15:55 UTC
This actually might be the original location for the RedHat version of the RPM 
as it seems to be a newer version: http://www.gurulabs.com/files/oraclerun9i-
1.4-1.src.rpm or http://www.gurulabs.com/files/oraclerun9i-1.4.tar.gz as 
referenced at: http://www.gurulabs.com/oracle-linux.html

Comment 3 Sean P. Kane 2003-02-13 00:19:07 UTC
That's fine, but there is simply NO REASON not to at least offer it via tech 
support for those who might need it, even if it is offical deemed as 
unsupported. Oracle has NEVER provided init scripts for any platform and you 
all should be much more familiar with the best methods to do it and conform to 
your system then they are anyways.
