Installing Oracle on RHEL5

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 patchset on RHEL4.

Red Hat dedicates a webpage to the topic of disabling SELinux.

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.”


I work for Amazon Web Services. The opinions I share in this blog are my own. I'm *not* communicating as a spokesperson for Amazon. In other words, I work at Amazon, but this is my own opinion.
