problem of installing oracle on linux

Dear all,

I have treid to install Oracle 8.1.7 enterprise on Linux Redhat 8 and 9
version. However, both of the linux version has the same problem. It said
cannot initialize VM or say waiting for VM initialize but wait for very
long long time but has no response. I have tried gcc-java, Sun microsystem
JDK2 and IBM java. However, all of them are not work. Can anyone help me
what I have done incorrectly or anything missing as I have set nothing in my
..bash_profile and also the server setting (e.g. metaphroe,memory setting
etc.). Thanks a lot.

Michael

Have you looked at http://www.puschitz.com/InstallingOracle9i.shtml ?
You might find the answer there.

Hello, all:

I encountered the same problem and after reading and follows the
instruction in this page, it did work! thus I now agree with the author
of this page : the installer group sucks :-P

My understanding of the problem is that, the Java VM used by the
installer are 1.1.8, which uses glibc 2.1, since redhat 7 and above not
use that, then it doesn't work... follow the instructions and you can
work out. Good luck!
