Download SoftwareDownload the following software: * Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2) SoftwareUnpack FilesUnzip the files. unzip linux.x64_11gR2_database_1of2.zip unzip linux.x64_11gR2_database_2of2.zipYou should now have a single directory called "database" containing installation files.
Hosts fileThe "/etc/hosts" file must contain a fully qualified name for the server. <IP-address> <fully-qualified-machine-name> <machine-name>
Set Kernel ParametersOracle recommend the following minimum parameter settings. fs.aio-max-nr = 1048576 fs.file-max = 6815744 kernel.shmall = 2097152 kernel.shmmax = 536870912 kernel.shmmni = 4096 kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 128 net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 9000 65500 net.core.rmem_default = 262144 net.core.rmem_max = 4194304 net.core.wmem_default = 262144 net.core.wmem_max = 1048586The current values can be tested using the following command: /sbin/sysctl -a | grep <param-name>
Add or amend the following lines in the "/etc/sysctl.conf" file. fs.aio-max-nr = 1048576 fs.file-max = 6815744 kernel.shmall = 2097152 kernel.shmmax = 536870912 kernel.shmmni = 4096 # semaphores: semmsl, semmns, semopm, semmni kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 128 net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 9000 65500 net.core.rmem_default=262144 net.core.rmem_max=4194304 net.core.wmem_default=262144 net.core.wmem_max=1048586

Firewall Administration ● Start the Firewall administration dialog (System > Administration > Firewall). Click the "Disable" button followed by the apply button on the toolbar, then close the dialog. ● Disable secure linux by editing the /etc/selinux/config file, making sure the SELINUX flag is set as follows. SELINUX=disabled ● Alternatively, this alteration can be done using the GUI tool (Applications > System Settings > Security Level). Click on the SELinux tab and disable the feature. If SELinux is disabled after installation, the server will need a reboot for the change to take effect.

Creating the directoriesCreate the directories in which the Oracle software will be installed. mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1 chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01 chmod -R 775 /u01
Editing xhost fileLogin as root and issue the following command. xhost +<machine-name>
Editing .bash_profile fileLogin as the oracle user and add the following lines at the end of the .bash_profile file. # Oracle Settings TMP=/tmp; export TMP TMPDIR=$TMP; export TMPDIR ORACLE_HOSTNAME=fedora14.localdomain; export ORACLE_HOSTNAME ORACLE_UNQNAME=DB11G; export ORACLE_UNQNAME ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle; export ORACLE_BASE ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/11.2.0/db_1; export ORACLE_HOME ORACLE_SID=DB11G; export ORACLE_SID ORACLE_TERM=xterm; export ORACLE_TERM PATH=/usr/sbin:$PATH; export PATH PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH; export PATH
InstallationLog into the oracle user. If you are using X emulation then set the DISPLAYenvironmental variable. DISPLAY=<machine-name>:0.0; export DISPLAYStart the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) by issuing the following command in thedatabase directory. ./runInstaller
