Install Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4

Hi there today I'll show how to install EM on linux.
First check that your system satisfied the requirement for installation,
Modify the /etc/sysctl.conf file to include the lines appropriate to your operating system:

kernel.shmmax = 536870912
kernel.shmmni = 4096
kernel.shmall = 2097152
# semaphores: semmsl, semmns, semopm, semmni
kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 128
fs.file-max = 65536
net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 1024 65000
net.core.rmem_default=262144
net.core.rmem_max=262144
net.core.wmem_default=262144
net.core.wmem_max=262144
run the following command to "reload" kernel settings:
# /sbin/sysctl -p
the following (or later) packages must be installed:
  • glibc-2.3.4-2.9
  • make-3.79
  • binutils-2.15.92.0.2-13
  • gcc-3.4.3-22.1
  • libaio-0.3.96
  • glibc-common-2.3.4-2.9
  • setarch-1.6-1
  • pdksh-5.2.14-30
  • openmotif21-2.1.30-11
  • sysstat-5.0.5-1
  • gnome-libs-1.4.1.2.90-44.1
  • libstdc++-3.4.3-22.1
  • libstdc++devel-3.4.3-22.1
  • compat-libstdc++-296-2.96-132.7.2
  • compat-db-4.1.25-9
  • control-center-2.8.0-12
  • xscreensaver-4.18-5.rhel4.2
to check if the package is installed run
# rpm -q package-name
if something is missing then install it:
# rpm -Uvh package-name
Now you had to create groups, user and directory structure for installation:
# groupadd oinstall
# groupadd dba
# groupadd oper
# useradd -g oinstall -G dba oracle
# passwd oracle
# mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/product/
# chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01
log in as oracle user, download the installation source, unpack, change your working directory to source and run runInstaller.sh:
# ./runInstaller.sh



Select the installation with new database and click on Next...



... set the path where you want to install and click on Next ...



... set the path for oraInventory and an translational group ...



... the system now check for requirements,
note: in my case every is installed by the book but oracle doesn't recognize three packages, simply ignore it and click next ...



... leave everything on default and click Next ...



... click Next ...



... set the passwords ...



... there is an summary, click on Install to begin the installation,
Note: depending on your system it may take a wile, in my case it is about 1.5 h ...




... during installation you must run two script as root, after you run it click on OK ...



... it creates a db ...



... read carefully the summary and click on Exit ...
