Oracle Database 11g R2 requesting package compat-libstdc++-5.0.7 on SLES10 SP3

This document (7004995) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 3

Situation

Oracle 11g R2 is supported on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 2 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 3. 

In order to install it, the following packages (or later versions) must be installed:
binutils-2.16.91.0.5
compat-libstdc++-5.0.7
gcc-4.1.2
gcc-c++-4.1.2
glibc-2.4-31
glibc-devel-2.4-31
ksh-93r-12.9
libaio-0.3.104
libaio-devel-0.3.104
libelf-0.8.5
libgcc-4.1.2
libstdc++-4.1.2
libstdc++-devel-4.1.2
make-3.80
sysstat-8.0.4

That works fine on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 2 but on
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 3, all the above packages are
available but compat-libstdc++.

During the installation on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 3,
that missing requirement is shown in the prerequisites Check Window.

Resolution

The Oracle installer searches for a specific package name (and version), instead of searching for the provides of the installed
packages.

The libstdc++33 package replaces the compat-libstdc++ package with all provides/obsoletes as necessary to make it a full upgrade
candidate:

% rpm -q --provides libstdc++33.rpm
compat-libstdc++
libstdc++5 = 3.3.3-7.8.1
libstdc++.so.5()(64bit)
libstdc++.so.5(CXXABI_1.2)(64bit)
libstdc++.so.5(CXXABI_1.2.1)(64bit)
libstdc++.so.5(CXXABI_1.2.2)(64bit)
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2)(64bit)
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2.1)(64bit)
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2.2)(64bit)
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2.3)(64bit)
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2.4)(64bit)
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2.5)(64bit)
libstdc++.so.5(libstdc++.so.5)(64bit)
libstdc++33 = 3.3.3-7.8.1

Once all the other requirements have been done, and the only missing one is the compat-libstdc++ package,
to complete the installation, the Ignore Requirements box needs to be checked, then, hit the install/next button
to finish the Oracle 11g R2 installation on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 3.
