Oracle 9i Installation

P: n/a
Dear Group Hi:
Hope to see you in good health.
I am trying to install Oracle 9i on Redhat Linux 9, Iam following the
Instructions from following Website www.dizwell.com, I am following
each and every step very Religiously :), so in those step when I have
to create the User "Oracle" I have to setup its Environment Variable
in file ".bashrc" at location "home/oracle/.bashrc", but unfortunately
iam unable to find the file at the desired location, the link of the
webpage is as follows(just in case!!!) :
http://www.dizwell.com/html/oracle_user1.html.
Iam a Mature Newbie In Linux, so kindly help me in Simple Language :).
Looking for your reply.
Take care of ure self.

I haven't looked at diswell.com, but after you setup the oracle user, you
should log in as oracle - then continue the oracle setup....

Off hand, are you looking for .bashrc using 'ls' with no options. (Unless
you are root or use 'ls -a', ls will not display files starting with a
period.)

Does /home/oracle exist?

And finally, you can create a script by any name to contain the environment
variables. It's just that .bashrc is automatically run (actually sourced)
on login so you would have to remember to 'source' your script using

.. ~/myscript

(Just executing it without the 'dot space', using

~/myscript

will only set the env. variables in the spawned subshell, which disappears
when the script is finished.)

Hi,
I have not seen the document from dizwell.com but it may be that it is not
for Oracle on Linux, maybe it's for the Unix platform. As far as I know,
the environmental variables for the user ORACLE is in
/home/oracle/.bash_profile
You may want to check it again.
