  4. Khurana Says:

    Thanks a lot Sir but one concern.

    What if i do not want to use DHCP. Because if i want to connect to Virtual machine through putty running on host OS The IP address will keep on changing(every time i reboot my Laptop) and that’s really irritating.


  5. Nicolas Gasparotto Says:

    Hi Kamran, video tutorial is nice, however few remarks :
    1. You set 1024Mb RAM, looks very short in memory nowadays
    2. You did not configure a fixed IP address, whereas DHCP is most often not recommanded, even for tersting purpose. And consequently, what about a “remote” access (and/or remote Oracle installation as most often we are doing) ?
    3. What about the package oracle-validated-1 (Base System/System tools) ?
    4. What about the DVD instead of the CD from OEL installer ?

    Keep it up,

    Hi Dear Nicolas. Welcome to my blog and thank you for your comment

    1. Sure it’s less, but as I’ve 3 GB RAM on my laptop and I frequently use two virtual machines together, I give 1GB per virtual machine (it makes 2) and one for PC. It should be increased as well
    2. It’s also possible and sure it’s nice choice. But I wanted to make the tutorial more less and to be quickly performed
    3. By installing rpm package it will create oracle user, change some parameters and would make the installation easier. However, I decided to show the steps making all changes manually because the user may test the procedures described in the Red-Hat or CentOS
    4. I’ve downloaded the DVD more than 5 times and each time I got it corrupted. So didn’t use it

    Thanks again for your valuable comments Nicolas

    Hi Kamran, I am totally new to Oracle and found your blog trough google and i really believe that your blog is going to be an excellent help to me. To start with, shall I install Oracle on OEL or CentOS. Since I cant afford thr Oracle’s pad support, I thought of CentOS. With me, I have both OEL & CentOS DVD. What are your suggestions as you covered step by steps for both? – A professional advice is much appreciated.

  8. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Dear Shan

    I’d suggest you use OEL instead of CentOS. You can use my video tutorial with step by step explanation

    Nice tutorial… although i still need to do the actual installation. Few quetionsi have for u :

    1) How did you get VMWAre software ? Is it free ? If it’s not free then what other alternative do i have ?
    2) Also how did you get VM ware Tools , is it free ?

  12. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    VMware is not free, however you can download and use it in 30 days. As an alternative, I can suggest you VirtualBox (http://www.virtualbox.org/)
    VMware tools comes with VMware installation

  13. Learner Says:

    Hi Kamran,

    Thanks for the info. I have successfully installed OEL on VirtualBox , initially i ignored the packages which u mentioned in your video to un-check , and faced some issues, so later on i followed and checked/unchecked linux packages as u suggested in the tutorial.

    Since it’s pretty late over here , will do the db install tomorrow first thing in the morning. One thing i wanted to ask in your tutorial u have made some kernel paramter and env. variable changes, …..can u tell me the exact website url for that parameter text file or do i have to create that paramter file manually while watching video.

    Sorry i could not locate that text file on ur blog.

    You can get these parameters from the following link:

    slm Kamran muellim.
    men oracle`in yuklenmesinde bir problemle qarsilasdim.xeta niye gore bas verdi tapa bilmedim.
    buraya qeder her sey normal geldi ama buraki scriptleri yazanda asagidaki kimi fayli tapa bilmir. bunun sebebi ne olabiler?

    [oracle@localhost ~]$ su root
    [root@localhost oracle]# cd /home/oracle/oraInventory/
    [root@localhost oraInventory]# ./orainstRoot.sh
    Changing permissions of /home/oracle/oraInventory to 770.
    Changing groupname of /home/oracle/oraInventory to oinstall.
    The execution of the script is complete
    [root@localhost oraInventory]# cd $ORACLE_HOME/
    [root@localhost /]# ./root.sh
    bash: ./root.sh: No such file or directory

  19. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Salam Elchin

    Gorunduyu kimi cd $ORACLE_HOME edende Oracle Home directory-sine kecmemisen, cunki $ORACLE_HOME environment variable “oracle” user-i ucun “set” olunub. Root user-i ile girende $ORACLE_HOME bilinmeyen bir deyiskendi. Sen ORACLE_HOME direktoriyasina kec ve root.sh-i ele calisdir

  22. akbar Says:

    hi wnt to know that oracle10g set2 patch can we download from any social network

  23. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    You can download Oracle 10gR2 directly from oracle.com , but if you want to download a special Patch or Patchset, you need to have a support contract

  24. Prateek Agrawal Says:

    /sbin/sysctl –p

  29. goutham Says:

    you have given step by step of installation of oracle10g on oracle linux 5.

    can you please give the correct modifications to be done to run smooth running of installation.



  30. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    If you’ve performed all prerequisite steps which I’ve shown in this video tutorial, you should success.
    Check the installation log file and see what you’re missing

  31. Thiyagusham G Says:

    Hai Kamran ;

    Thanku you for your video. Great!!
    I tried to install oracle 10g on OEL 4.4. I couldn’t install gcc RPM.
    In your video regarding RPM’s not loaded. Can u assist Is there any useful document to follow oracle installation on OEL 4.4 because i want to see how gcc RPM was loaded ????

  32. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    I’m trying install all required packages during OS installation, but if you forget any package, you can install them by moving to the RPMS directory of OS installation cd and run rpm -Uvh command and specify the RPM package you want to install

  33. Thiyagusham G Says:

    Good Morning Kamran

    Please clarify two doubts.. Nice creation video … Almost i followed your video i done it.

    1. I successfully installed 10g R2 on OEL 4.
    I executed root.sh and oraintroot.sh scripts perfectly. then i rebooted my system from # user. IS it right method ???
    as oracle user i could n’t reboot the ” SYSTEM ” why ???
    2. Why ORAINSTROOT.SH & ROOT.SH scripts to be executed …
    I googled but i need good clarity Most of the sites displaying ” SAME ANSWER ” .Could you explain anyone simple way ???

    Thanks and Regards

  34. Thiyagusham G Says:

    Hai KAmran;

    34. While creating DATABASE through DBCA i am facing ORA 00600 internal error code [keltnfy -idmlnit] , [46],[1],[],[],[],[],[]
    what is this ” ERROR ” ???
    How can i “RESOLVE” this ???

    Thanks & Regards

  35. Kamran Agayev A. Says:


    I’d suggest you to read the following metalink note:
    Startup Database Produces ORA-00600: [Keltnfy-Ldminit] [ID 336447.1]

  36. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    1. Because “oracle” is not a power user
    2. Check the following link:

  37. Thiyagusham G Says:

    Hai kamran ;

    I need to clear one doubt. Already i mentioned i got ORA 600. Clearly i found error comes from “etc/hosts”
    Whenever i login on linux (REdhat or OEL) i am getting error message

    “Could not look up internet address for dhcppc1. This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly.
    It may be possible to correct the problem by adding dhcppc1 to the file /etc/hosts.”

    I can’t create database manually as well as throough DBCA.

    What is the type of network device in your vmware machine? Have you configured anything?
