3.1 Preinstallation Considerations → completing the tasks listed in Chapter 2, \"Oracle Database Preinstallation Requirements\", consider the following case:
2 Oracle Database Preinstallation Requirements → Preinstallation Requirements for Oracle Configuration Manager Checking the Network Setup Creating
2.4 Preinstallation Requirements for Oracle Configuration Manager → During the installation, you are prompted to provide information required to enable Oracle Configuration Manager. When you create a service request with Oracle Support, the configuration information can help to provide a rapid resolution to the service issue. You can enable Oracle Configuration Manager during or after installation. To enable it during the installation, you must have the following

2.2.4 Recommended Hardware Requirement for SQL Developer → The following table lists the recommended Memory and Display requirements for SQL Developer. Resource Recommended Memory 1 GB RAM (recommended), 256 MB RAM (min) Display 65536 colors, set to at least 1024 X 768 resolution
2.5.5 Installing on Non-Networked Computers → You can install Oracle Database on a non-networked computer. If the computer, such as a laptop, is configured for DHCP and you plan to connect the computer to the network after the Oracle Database installation, then use the ping command on the computer on which you want to install the database to check if the computer can connect to itself. Perform this step by first using only the host name and then
2.9 Identifying Required Software Directories → You must identify or create the following directories for the Oracle software: Oracle Base Directory Oracle Inventory Directory Oracle Home Directory
2.10.1 Identifying an Existing Oracle Base Directory → Existing Oracle base directories may not have paths that comply with OFA (Optimal Flexible Architecture) guidelines. However, if you identify an existing Oracle Inventory directory or existing Oracle home directories, then you can usually identify the Oracle base directories, as follows: Identifying an existing Oracle Inventory directory. Refer to Creating the Oracle Inventory Group for more information.
2.12.1 Guidelines for Placing Oracle Database Files on a File System → If you choose to place the Oracle Database files on a file system, then use the following guidelines when deciding where to place them: The default path suggested by Oracle Universal Installer for the database file directory is a subdirectory of the Oracle base directory. You can choose either a single file system or more than one file system to store the database files: If you want to use a single
2.13.3 Step 2: Using an Existing Automatic Storage Management Disk Group → Note: This is an optional step. If you want to store either database or recovery files in an existing Automatic Storage Management disk group, then you have the following choices, depending on the installation method that you select: To run Oracle Database Configuration Assistant in an interactive mode (for example, choosing the Advanced database configuration option), you can decide to create a disk
2.2 Checking the Hardware Requirements → The system must meet the following minimum hardware requirements: Memory Requirements System Architecture Disk Space Requirements Recommended Hardware Requirement for SQL Developer
2.5.1 Configuring Name Resolution → When you run Oracle Universal Installer, an error may occur if name resolution is not set up. To avoid this error, before you begin installation, you must ensure that host names are resolved through the /etc/hosts file. To ensure that host names are resolved only through the /etc/hosts file: Verify that the /etc/hosts file is used for name resolution. You can do this by checking the hosts file entry
2.5.4 Installing on Computers with Multiple Aliases → A computer with multiple aliases is registered with the naming service under a single IP but with multiple aliases. The naming service resolves any of those aliases to the same computer. Before installing Oracle Database on such a computer, set the ORACLE_HOSTNAME environment variable to the computer whose host name you want to use.
2.9.1 Oracle Base Directory → The Oracle base directory is a top-level directory for Oracle software installations. On Linux systems, the Optimal Flexible Architecture (OFA) guidelines recommend that you use a path similar to the following for the Oracle base directory: /mount_point/app/oracle_sw_owner In this example: mount_point is the mount point directory for the file system that will contain the Oracle software. The examples
2.15 Stopping Existing Oracle Processes → Note: If you are installing additional Oracle Database 11 g products in an existing Oracle home, then stop all processes running in the Oracle home. You must complete this task to enable Oracle Universal Installer to relink certain executables and libraries. If you choose to create a database during the installation, then most installation types configure and start a default Oracle Net listener using
2.16 Configuring the oracle User's Environment → You run Oracle Universal Installer from the oracle account. However, before you start Oracle Universal Installer you must configure the environment of the oracle user. To configure the environment, you must: Set the default file mode creation mask ( umask ) to 022 in the shell startup file. Set the DISPLAY environment variable. To set the oracle user's environment: Start a new terminal session, for
2.3 Checking the Software Requirements → Depending on the products that you intend to install, verify that the following software are installed on the system. Note: This guide contains information required to install Oracle Database 11 g Release 1 (11.1) on various platforms of Linux. Ensure that you review information related to the platform on which you intend to install Oracle Database 11 g. Oracle Universal Installer performs checks
2.3.4 Compiler Requirements → Intel C++ Compiler 9.1 or later and the version of GNU C and C++ compilers listed under \"Package Requirements\" are supported with Pro*C/C++, Oracle Call Interface, Oracle C++ Call Interface, and Oracle XML Developer's Kit (XDK) for Oracle Database 11 g Release 1. Starting with Oracle Database 11 g release 1 (188.8.131.52), Pro*COBOL is certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server
2.8 Configuring Kernel Parameters → Verify that the kernel parameters shown in the following table are set to values greater than or equal to the minimum value shown. If the current value for any parameter is higher than the value listed in this table, then do not change the value of that parameter. The procedure following the table describes how to verify and set the values. Note: The kernel parameter and shell limit values shown in
2.9.2 Oracle Inventory Directory → The Oracle Inventory directory ( oraInventory ) stores an inventory of all software installed on the system. It is required and shared by all Oracle software installations on a single system. If you have an existing Oracle Inventory path, then Oracle Universal Installer continues to use that Oracle Inventory. The first time you install Oracle software on a system, Oracle Universal Installer checks
