Checking the Oracle Database Prerequisites Packages Installation

Use this procedure to gather information about the Oracle Database prerequisites group package configuration.

  1. To check if oracle-database-preinstall-19c is already installed:
    $ pkg list oracle-database-preinstall-19c
  2. To check for the latest version of oracle-database-preinstall-19c:
    $ pkg list -n oracle-database-preinstall-19c
  3. Before you install oracle-database-preinstall-19c:
    1. Use the -n option to check for errors:
      $ pkg install -n oracle-database-preinstall-19c


      Use the -n option to check for installation errors. If -n does not display any errors, then omit the -n option when you install oracle-database-preinstall-19c.
    2. If there are no errors, then log in as root, and install the group package:
      # pkg install oracle-database-preinstall-19c
    3. If you have the oracle user and other user groups already defined, and do not want to change them:
      # pkg avoid oracle-database-os-configuration
  4. To view what packages will be installed by oracle-database-preinstall-19c:
    $ pkg contents -ro type,fmri -t depend oracle-database-preinstall-19c
