This guide describes how to quickly install Oracle Database 10g on Linux x86 systems. It includes information about the following:

1 Reviewing Information About This Guide

This guide describes how to install Oracle Database by using the default installation options.

Tasks Described in This Guide

The procedures in this guide describe how to:

  • Configure your system to support Oracle Database

  • Install Oracle Database on a local file system by using the Basic Installation option

  • Configure a general-purpose Oracle Database installation that uses the local file system for database file storage

Results of a Successful Installation

After you successfully install Oracle Database:

  • The database that you created and the default Oracle Net listener process run on the system.

  • Oracle Enterprise Manager Database Control and iSQL*Plus are running and can be accessed by using a Web browser.

Tasks Not Described in This Guide

This guide covers the Basic Installation scenario and does not describe how to complete the following tasks:

  • Using the Advanced Installation option to install the software

  • Installing the software on a system that has an existing Oracle software installation

  • Installing Oracle Clusterware and Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) on a cluster

  • Enabling Enterprise Manager e-mail notifications or automated backups

  • Using alternative storage options such as Automatic Storage Management or raw devices for database storage

Where to Get Additional Installation Information

For more information about installing Oracle Database, including information about the tasks not described in this guide, refer to one of the following guides:

  • If you want to install the software on a single system, then refer to Oracle Database Installation Guide for Linux x86.

  • If you want to perform a RAC installation, then refer to Oracle Database Oracle Clusterware and Oracle Real Application Clusters Installation Guide for Linux. This guide also describes how to install Oracle Clusterware, which is a prerequisite for RAC installations.

Both these guides are available on the product disc. To access them, use a Web browser to open the welcome.htm file located in the top-level directory of the installation media, and then select the Documentation tab.

2 Logging In to the System as root

Before you install Oracle Database, you must complete several tasks as the root user. To log in as the root user, complete one of the following procedures:


Note:

You must install the software from an X Window System workstation, an X terminal, or a PC or other system with X server software installed.

  • If you are installing the software from an X Window System workstation or X terminal, then:

    1. Start a local terminal session, for example, an X terminal (xterm).

    2. If you are not installing the software on the local system, then enter the following command to enable the remote host to display X applications on the local X server:

      $ xhost fully_qualified_remote_host_name
      
      

      For example:

      $ xhost somehost.us.acme.com
      
      
    3. If you are not installing the software on the local system, then use the ssh, rlogin, or telnet command to connect to the system where you want to install the software:

      $ telnet fully_qualified_remote_host_name
      
      
    4. If you are not logged in as the root user, then enter the following command to switch user to root:

      $ su - root
      password:
      #
      
      
  • If you are installing the software from a PC or other system with X server software installed, then:


    Note:

    If necessary, refer to your X server documentation for more information about completing this procedure. Depending on the X server software that you are using, you may need to complete the tasks in a different order.

    1. Start the X server software.

    2. Configure the security settings of the X server software to permit remote hosts to display X applications on the local system.

    3. Connect to the remote system where you want to install the software, and start a terminal session on that system, for example, an X terminal (xterm).

    4. If you are not logged in as the root user on the remote system, then enter the following command to switch user to root:

      $ su - root
      password:
      #
      

3 Checking the Hardware Requirements

The system must meet the following minimum hardware requirements:

  • At least 1024 MB of physical RAM

  • The following table shows the relationship between the available RAM and the required swap space.

    Available RAMSwap Space Required
    Between 1024 MB and 2048 MB1.5 times the size of RAM
    Between 2049 MB and 8192 MBEqual to the size of RAM
    More than 8192 MB0.75 times the size of RAM

  • 400 MB of disk space in the /tmp directory

  • Between 1.5 GB and 3.5 GB of disk space for the Oracle software, depending on the installation type

  • 1.2 GB of disk space for a preconfigured database that uses file system storage (optional)

To ensure that the system meets these requirements, follow these steps:

  1. To determine the physical RAM size, enter the following command:

    # grep MemTotal /proc/meminfo
    
    

    If the size of the physical RAM installed in the system is less than the required size, then you must install more memory before continuing.

  2. To determine the size of the configured swap space, enter the following command:

    # grep SwapTotal /proc/meminfo
    
    

    If necessary, refer to your operating system documentation for information about how to configure additional swap space.

  3. To determine the available RAM and swap space, enter the following command:

    # free
    
    
  4. To determine the amount of free disk space available in the /tmp directory, enter the following command:

    # df -k /tmp
    
    

    If there is less than 400 MB of disk space available in the /tmp directory, then complete one of the following steps:

    • Delete unnecessary files from the /tmp directory.

    • Set the TEMP and TMPDIR environment variables when setting the oracle user's environment (described later).

    • Extend the file system that contains the /tmp directory. If required, contact your system administrator for information about extending file systems.

  5. To determine the amount of free disk space available on the system, enter the following command:

    # df -k
    
    
  6. To determine whether the system architecture can run the software, enter the following command:

    # grep "model name" /proc/cpuinfo
    
    

    This command displays the processor type. Verify that the processor architecture matches the Oracle software release that you want to install. If you do not see the expected output, then you cannot install the software on this system.

4 Checking the Software Requirements

The system must meet the following minimum software requirements, depending on the distribution and version of your operating system:


Note:

Oracle Universal Installer performs checks on your system to verify that it meets the listed requirements. To ensure that these checks pass, verify the requirements before you start Oracle Universal Installer.

  • The operating system must be one of the following:

    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0 (Update 3 or later)

    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0

    • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9.0

    • Asianux 1.0

    • Asianux 2.0

  • The system must be running the following (or later) kernel version:

    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0 and Asianux 1.0

      2.4.21-27.EL

    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0 and Asianux 2.0

      2.6.9-5.0.5.EL

    • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9

      2.6.5-7.97

  • The following packages (or later versions) must be installed:

    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0 and 4.0, and Asianux 1.0 and Asianux 2.0

      make-3.79.1
      gcc-3.2.3-34
      glibc-2.3.2-95.20
      compat-db-4.0.14-5
      compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.128
      compat-gcc-c++-7.3-2.96.128
      compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.128
      compat-libstdc++-devel-7.3-2.96.128
      openmotif21-2.1.30-8
      setarch-1.3-1
      
      
    • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9

      gcc-3.3.3-43
      gcc-c++-3.3.3-43
      glibc-2.3.3-98
      libaio-0.3.98-18
      libaio-devel-0.3.98-18
      make-3.80
      openmotif-libs-2.2.2-519.1
      
      

For the Oracle products that you want to install, the system must meet the following product-specific requirments:

  • Oracle Messaging Gateway

    This product supports the integration of Oracle Streams Advanced Queuing (AQ) with the following software:

    • IBM WebSphere MQ V5.3, client and server, with corrective service diskette 5 (CSD05) or later:

      MQSeriesClient
      MQSeriesServer
      MQSeriesRuntime
      
      
    • TIBCO Rendezvous 7.2

  • Oracle Spatial

    This product requires the following X Window System development packages:

    XFree86
    XFree86-devel
    
    

    This software is required only to build the sample programs.

  • PL/SQL native compilation, Pro*C/C++, Oracle Call Interface, Oracle C++ Call Interface, and Oracle XML Developer's Kit (XDK)

    The version of GNU C and C++ compilers listed previously for your distribution is supported for use with these products.

    Intel C++ Compiler v7.1.0.28 or later is also supported. However, it is not required for installation. On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, OCCI is supported with both version 2.96-128 and version 3.2 of the GNU C++ compiler. However, version 3.2 is the default compiler version. OCCI is also supported with Intel Compiler v8.0 with gcc 3.2.3 standard template libraries. Intel C++ Compiler v7 does not support OCCI.

  • Oracle JDBC/OCI Drivers

    You can use the following version of JDK with the Oracle JDBC/OCI drivers:

    Sun JDK 1.4.2_08 with the JNDI extension

    However, it is not required for the installation.

    JDK 1.4.2_08 is installed with this release.

To ensure that the system meets these requirements, follow these steps:

  1. To determine which version of the operating system is installed, enter the following command:

    # cat /etc/issue
    

    Note:

    Only the distributions and versions listed earlier in this section are supported. Do not install the software on other versions of Linux.

  2. To determine whether the required kernel is installed, enter the following command :

    # uname -r
    
    

    The following is sample output obtained by running this command on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0 system:

    2.4.21-15.EL
    
    

    In this example, the output shows the kernel version (2.4.21) and errata level (15.EL).

    If the kernel version does not meet the requirement specified earlier in this section, then contact your operating system vendor for information about obtaining and installing kernel updates.

  3. To determine whether the required packages are installed, enter commands similar to the following:

    # rpm -q package_name
    
    

    If a package is not installed, or if the version is lower than the required version, then install it from your Linux distribution media or download the required package from your Linux vendor's Web site.

  4. If you require a CSD for WebSphere MQ, then refer to the following Web site for download and installation information:

5 Creating Required Operating System Groups and Users

The following local operating system groups and users are required if you are installing Oracle Database:

  • The Oracle Inventory group (oinstall)

  • The OSDBA group (dba)

  • The Oracle software owner (oracle)

  • An unprivileged user (nobody)

To determine whether these groups and users already exist, and if necessary, to create them, follow these steps:

  1. To determine whether the oinstall group exists, enter the following command:

    # more /etc/oraInst.loc
    
    

    If the output of this command shows the oinstall group name, then the group already exists.

    If the oraInst.loc file exists, then the output from this command is similar to the following:

    inventory_loc=/u01/app/oracle/oraInventory
    inst_group=oinstall
    
    

    The inst_group parameter shows the name of the Oracle Inventory group, oinstall.

  2. To determine whether the dba group exists, enter the following command:

    # grep dba /etc/group
    
    

    If the output from this commands shows the dba group name, then the group already exists.

  3. If necessary, enter the following commands to create the oinstall and dba groups:

    # /usr/sbin/groupadd oinstall
    # /usr/sbin/groupadd dba
    
    
  4. To determine whether the oracle user exists and belongs to the correct groups, enter the following command:

    # id oracle
    
    

    If the oracle user exists, then this command displays information about the groups to which the user belongs. The output should be similar to the following, indicating that oinstall is the primary group and dba is a secondary group:

    uid=440(oracle) gid=200(oinstall) groups=201(dba),202(oper)
    
    
  5. If necessary, complete one of the following actions:

    • If the oracle user exists, but its primary group is not oinstall or it is not a member of the dba group, then enter the following command:

      # /usr/sbin/usermod -g oinstall -G dba oracle
      
      
    • If the oracle user does not exist, enter the following command to create it:

      # /usr/sbin/useradd -g oinstall -G dba oracle
      
      

      This command creates the oracle user and specifies oinstall as the primary group and dba as the secondary group.

  6. Enter the following command to set the password of the oracle user:

    # passwd oracle
    
    
  7. To determine whether the nobody user exists, enter the following command:

    # id nobody
    
    

    If this command displays information about the nobody user, then you do not have to create the user.

    If the nobody user does not exist, then enter the following command to create it:

    # /usr/sbin/useradd nobody
    

6 Configuring Kernel Parameters

Verify that the kernel parameters shown in the following table are set to values greater than or equal to the recommended value shown. The procedure following the table describes how to verify and set the values.

wmem_default262144/proc/sys/net/core/wmem_default
wmem_max262144/proc/sys/net/core/wmem_max


Note:

If the current value of any parameter is higher than the value listed in this table, then do not change the value of that parameter.

To view the current value specified for these kernel parameters, and to change them if necessary:

  1. Enter commands similar to the following to view the current values of the kernel parameters:


    Note:

    Make a note of the current values and identify any values that you must change.

    ParameterCommand
    semmsl, semmns, semopm, and semmni# /sbin/sysctl -a | grep sem

    This command displays the value of the semaphore parameters in the order listed.

    shmall, shmmax, and shmmni# /sbin/sysctl -a | grep shm
    file-max# /sbin/sysctl -a | grep file-max
    ip_local_port_range# /sbin/sysctl -a | grep ip_local_port_range
    rmem_default# /sbin/sysctl -a | grep rmem_default
    rmem_max# /sbin/sysctl -a | grep rmem_max
    wmem_default# /sbin/sysctl -a | grep wmem_default
    wmem_max# /sbin/sysctl -a | grep wmem_max

  2. If the value of any kernel parameter is different from the recommended value, then complete the following steps:

    Using any text editor, create or edit the /etc/sysctl.conf file and add or edit lines similar to the following:


    Note:

    Include lines only for the kernel parameter values that you want to change. For the semaphore parameters (kernel.sem), you must specify all four values. However, if any of the current values are larger than the recommended value, specify the larger value.

    kernel.shmall = 2097152
    kernel.shmmax = 2147483648
    kernel.shmmni = 4096
    kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 128
    fs.file-max = 65536
    net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 1024 65000
    rmem_default = 262144
    rmem_max = 262144
    wmem_default = 262144
    wmem_max = 262144
    
    

    By specifying the values in the /etc/sysctl.conf file, they persist when you restart the system.

    On SUSE systems only, enter the following command to ensure that the system reads the /etc/sysctl.conf file when it restarts:

    # /sbin/chkconfig boot.sysctl on
    

Set Shell Limits for the oracle User

To improve the performance of the software, you must increase the following shell limits for the oracle user:

Shell LimitItem in limits.confHard Limit
Maximum number of open file descriptorsnofile65536
Maximum number of processes available to a single usernproc16384

To increase the shell limits:

  1. Add the following lines in the /etc/security/limits.conf file:

    oracle           soft    nproc   2047
    oracle           hard    nproc   16384
    oracle           soft    nofile  1024
    oracle           hard    nofile  65536
    
    
  2. Add the following line to the /etc/pam.d/login file, if it does not already exist:

    session    required     /lib/security/pam_limits.so
    
    
  3. Depending on the oracle user's default shell, make the following changes to the default shell startup file:

    • For the Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell, add the following lines in the /etc/profile file (or the /etc/profile.local file on SUSE systems):

      if [ $USER = "oracle" ]; then
              if [ $SHELL = "/bin/ksh" ]; then
                    ulimit -p 16384
                    ulimit -n 65536
              else
                    ulimit -u 16384 -n 65536
              fi
      fi
      
      
    • For the C shell, add the following lines in the /etc/csh.login file (or the /etc/csh.login.local file on SUSE systems):

      if ( $USER == "oracle" ) then
              limit maxproc 16384
              limit descriptors 65536
      endif
      

7 Creating Required Directories

Create directories with names similar to the following, and specify the correct owner, group, and permissions for them:

  • The Oracle base directory

  • An optional Oracle data file directory (optional)

The Oracle base directory must have 3 GB of free disk space, or 4 GB of free disk space if you choose not to create a separate Oracle data file directory.


Note:

If you do not want to create a separate Oracle data file directory, then you can install the data files in a subdirectory of the Oracle base directory. However, this is not recommended for production databases.

To create the Oracle base directory:

  1. Enter the following command to display information about all mounted file systems:

    # df -k
    
    

    This command displays information about all the file systems mounted on the system, including:

    • The physical device name

    • The total amount, used amount, and available amount of disk space

    • The mount point directory for that file system

  2. From the display, identify either one or two file systems that meet the disk space requirements mentioned earlier in this section.

  3. Note the name of the mount point directory for each file system that you identified.

  4. Enter commands similar to the following to create the recommended subdirectories in the mount point directory that you identified and set the appropriate owner, group, and permissions on them:

    # mkdir -p /mount_point/app/oracle_sw_owner
    # chown -R oracle:oinstall /mount_point/app/oracle_sw_owner
    # chmod -R 775 /mount_point/app/oracle_sw_owner
    
    

    For example, if the mount point you identify is /u01 and oracle is the user name of the Oracle software owner, then the recommended Oracle base directory path is as follows:

    /u01/app/oracle
    

8 Configuring the oracle User's Environment

You run Oracle Universal Installer from the oracle account. However, before you start Oracle Universal Installer, you must configure the environment of the oracle user. To configure the environment, you must:

  • Set the default file mode creation mask (umask) to 022 in the shell startup file.

  • Set the DISPLAY environment variable.

To set the oracle user's environment:

  1. Start a new terminal session, for example, an X terminal (xterm).

  2. Enter the following command to ensure that X Window applications can display on this system:

    $ xhost fully_qualified_remote_host_name
    
    
  3. Complete one of the following steps:

    • If the terminal session is not connected to the system where you want to install the software, then log in to that system as the oracle user.

    • If the terminal session is connected to the system where you want to install the software, then switch user to oracle:

      $ su - oracle
      
      
  4. To determine the default shell for the oracle user, enter the following command:

    $ echo $SHELL
    
    
  5. Open the oracle user's shell startup file in any text editor:

    • Bash shell (bash) on Red Hat:

      $ vi .bash_profile
      
      
    • Bourne shell (sh), Bash shell on SUSE (bash), or Korn shell (ksh):

      $ vi .profile
      
      
    • C shell (csh or tcsh):

      % vi .login
      
      
  6. Enter or edit the following line in the shell startup file, specifying a value of 022 for the default file mode creation mask:

    umask 022
    
    
  7. If the ORACLE_SID, ORACLE_HOME, or ORACLE_BASE environment variable is set in the file, then remove the corresponding lines from the file.

  8. Save the file, and exit from the editor.

  9. To run the shell startup script, enter the following command:

    • Bash shell on Red Hat:

      $ . ./.bash_profile
      
      
    • Bourne shell, Bash shell on SUSE, or Korn shell:

      $ . ./.profile
      
      
    • C shell:

      % source ./.login
      
      
  10. If you are not installing the software on the local system, then enter a command similar to the following to direct X applications to display on the local system:

    • Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell:

      $ DISPLAY=local_host:0.0 ; export DISPLAY
      
      
    • C shell:

      % setenv DISPLAY local_host:0.0
      
      

    In this example, local_host is the host name or IP address of the system that you want to use to display Oracle Universal Installer (your workstation or PC).

  11. If you determined that the /tmp directory had insufficient free disk space when checking the hardware requirements, then identify a file system with the required amount of free space and set the TEMP and TMPDIR environment variables as follows:

    1. Use the df -k command to identify a suitable file system with sufficient free space.

    2. If necessary, enter commands similar to the following to create a temporary directory on the file system that you identified, and set the appropriate permissions on the directory:

      $ su - root
      # mkdir /mount_point/tmp
      # chmod a+wr /mount_point/tmp
      # exit
      
      
    3. Enter commands similar to the following to set the TEMP and TMPDIR environment variables:

      Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell:

      $ TEMP=/directory
      $ TMPDIR=/directory
      $ export TEMP TMPDIR
      
      

      C shell:

      % setenv TEMP /directory
      % setenv TMPDIR /directory
      
      
  12. Enter the following commands to ensure that the ORACLE_HOME and TNS_ADMIN environment variables are not set:

    Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell:

    $ unset ORACLE_HOME
    $ unset TNS_ADMIN
    
    

    C shell:

    % unsetenv ORACLE_HOME
    % unsetenv TNS_ADMIN
    
    
  13. To verify that the environment has been set correctly, enter the following commands:

    $ umask
    $ env | more
    
    

    Verify that the umask command displays a value of 0022, 022, or 22 and the environment variables that you set in this section have the correct values.

9 Mounting the Product Disc

On most Linux systems, the product disc mounts automatically when you insert it into the drive. If the disc does not mount automatically, then follow these steps to mount it:

  1. Switch user to root:

    $ su - root
    
    
  2. If necessary, enter a command similar to the following to eject the currently mounted disc, then remove it from the drive:

    • Red Hat:

      # eject /mnt/dvd
      
      
    • SUSE:

      # eject /media/dvd
      
      

    In these examples, /mnt/dvd and /media/dvd are the mount point directories for the disc drive.

  3. Insert the disc into the disc drive.

  4. To verify that the disc mounted automatically, enter a command similar to the following:

    • Red Hat:

      $ ls /mnt/dvd
      
      
    • SUSE:

      $ ls /media/dvd
      
      
  5. If this command fails to display the contents of the disc, then enter a command similar to the following:

    • Red Hat:

      # mount -t iso9660 /dev/dvd /mnt/dvd
      
      
    • SUSE:

      # mount -t iso9660 /dev/dvd /media/dvd
      
      

    In these examples, /mnt/dvd and /media/dvd are the mount point directories for the disc drive.
