CPU patch apply post

I liked the latest (7) step which was also helped me to overcome “is not writable” error even the mentioned .so file wasn’t in use by any active process

Note: Please make sure you’ve read the following metalink note:

Opatch Reports ‘libclntsh.so.10.1 not removed. Text file busy’ [ID 553263.1]
