Here we will consider installation of the server for running Oracle database or related product.  Please note that nor all Oracle products are compatible with version 6 as of june 2011 (for example Oracle LDAP is not).

When using custom selection of packages don't forget to select X11 and gnome. By default they are not selected and you end with command line based system running on level 3.

Selection of packages for Oracle Linux 6

Selection of packages is tricky: in custom installation X11 is not default.  Here are recommendations for Oracle Linux 6:

Individual packages are available from Oracle repositories.  You need pdksh in are installing on Oracle Linux 6

[Apr 29, 2011]   OTN Discussion Forums With 6 what are the steps to install ...

Oracle installation requres pdksh for some unknown reason. It's better to take it from version 5.6, See Index of -repo-OracleLinux-OL5-6-base-x86_64. The package is pdksh-5.2.14-36.el5.x86_64.rpm

Re: With 6 what are the steps to install Oracle 11gR2?
Posted: Feb 13, 2011 8:32 AM    in response to: steffi

As Avi suggested, following the Oracle installation for OEL 5 is pretty fine - eventhough 11gR2 on OEL6 is not yet cetified.

I just received an exception on the missing package pdksh-5.2.14-30.6.x86_64.rpm. It was not required on OEL5, I'm not a Linux specialist but I have had to take it from OEL4.7, then everything is working fine.

IBM Techdocs White Paper Installing Red Hat Linux from a USB flashdrive

Abstract: This document describes a technique for installing Red Hat® Linux from a portable USB flashdrive. The flashdrive has the advantage of being a writeable device, making it much more flexible than CD-ROM. You can easily create custom boot media, using Red Hat kickstart and the SYSLINUX menus, without having to create a new El Torito bootable ISO image or burn physical media. And making modifications on-the-fly is not a problem.

You can set up multiple installation tasks on a single flashdrive, limited only by your device’s space. A 4GB flashdrive is enough to hold a single set of RHEL installation media; an 8 GB drive should be enough space for two.

The USB flashdrive is in many ways ideal for field support. It is portable, fast, easy to modify and can perform a wide variety of pre-execution tasks—including firmware deployment, diagnostics, backup and recovery—in addition to OS installation.

Some of the techniques described here cover the operation of the SYSLINUX bootloader and its menu system. These are good techniques to learn, as SYSLINUX also supports boot via CD-ROM (ISOLINUX) and network-based PXE boot (PXELINUX). With a few exceptions, the SYSLINUX bootloaders work the same way across all the media types. So, learning to work with SYSLINUX will help you build custom boot media, regardless of which media type is best suited for the task.
