Iâ€™ve received lots mail regarding this issue. A typical question
How do I install Oracle on Redhat or Suse Linux? Howto configure Oracle along with few DBA questions.
First, Oracle goes very well with Redhat / Oracle Linux or Suse Linux. Donâ€™t try other disto. Other distro may work but it requires some expertise. Personally I have installed Oracle on RHEL 4 and Suse Linux as well as few Debian boxes.
Installation is really easy if you follow official installation guide. Iâ€™m not going to write instructions here but following resources should help anyone:
