SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10


The installation of Oracle on SLES10 fails with a lot of link errors.

Reason: a missing Oracle Patch


Preparation: get Oracle patches 6007358 and 5337014

Run the Oracle GUI for on SLES10 until you get the link error
- let the GUI keep running while you install patch 6007358

The manual steps to follow to apply patch 6007358:

1. Unzip the patch zip file into a temp directory, for instance to:


2. This creates an appropriate patch directory structure and has all the necessary files in it.

3. Copy the libraries to the appropriate directory under $ORACLE_HOME.
For example :


cp /tmp/ora/6007358/files/lib/libclient10.a $ORACLE_HOME/lib/libclient10.a
cp /tmp/ora/6007358/files/lib32/libclient10.a $ORACLE_HOME/lib32/libclient10.a

4. Click "Retry" on the error message box from OUI.

This allows completion of installation on SLES10 and then you can upgrade to with patchset 5337014.
