Tim Hall has posted a blog entry about installing Oracle on RHEL 5. There are URLs in the blog entry that provide very step-by-step install directions. I wanted to point out, however, that in one of the URLs the stipulation is made that Secure Linux (SELinux) is presumed to be disabled but I didn’t see tips on how to do that. The topic of disabling SELinux also came up in the comments thread of a post I did about applying the 10.2.0.3 patchset on RHEL4.
All that aside, a friend of mine (works for Red Hat) is actually doing the Oracle Certification of RHEL5. I think I’ll wait until he is done before I “try the water.”
