Oracle Tips  

Oracle HP/UX installation

It is strongly suggested that the DBA use the installation guide provided by Oracle for his or her own release of the operating system in use. The following procedure should be regarded only as a general set of guidelines; it is not intended to replace the installation procedures provided by Oracle.

Example Installation of Oracle Using the Linux Operating System

Before you can successfully install and operate Oracle on the Linux operating system, you must be sure that you meet all the required prerequisites to do so. These prerequisites are specified in the Oracle installation guide for Linux, which is available online at Always check the latest version of the operating guide, as these requirements may change from release to release and, of course, between different operating systems. Table 1.2 shows the suggested kernel parameters for the UNIX and other systems for Oracle release 9.0.1, as of 8/13/2001.

HP-UX Release
SUN 2.8
Linux 7.1 (SuSE)
