Need help in configuring FC4 for installing Oracle DB 10g.
 
Hi,
I am new to Linux FC4 and Oracle DB 10g. I am installing Oracle DB 10g on my already installed Fedora Core 4 (Everything).

I am trying to complete the pre-installation steps for Oracle DB. I need help with the issue of installing lower versioned FC4 packages when higher versioned packages are already installed. I ran the command:

# rpm -q compat-gcc-7.3
Output: package compat-gcc-7.3 is not installed.

# rpm -q compat-gcc
Output: compat-gcc-8.3.3.4.2

What I understand is the following:
I have the compat-gcc package but it is the 8.3.3.4.2 version.

But I need the 7.3 version for the correct installation of the Oracle DB 10g.

When I try to install the compat-gcc version from the 'fedora.us' site, I get the message that, "a newer version is installed". So, the OS doesnt accept the 7.3 version.

How do I install the compat-gcc-7.3 versioned package?

Do I need to uninstall the whole thing and reinstall the whole thing? That
sounds easier and faster rather than wasting time with this workaround.

thanx in advance,
vick

You will have to uninstall compat-gcc-8.3.3.4.2 before you can install the 7.x version.

Uninstall is good. But where do I install the package?
 
Hi Till,

Based on what you said, I was able to uninstall the higher version. I downloaded the required gcc package and saved it on my desktop. I tried to run (install) it directly, but got some error message. So, I downloaded the package and saved it to my desktop.

Then, when I installed the package - I had 365 items put on my desktop. :) So, what do I do now? Can I just cut them and paste them in some folder? If so, which folder? I am not familiar with the Linux directory structure; as to which folder is meant for what functions.

Thanx again, in advance.

You can put the package in any folder you like on your Linux system. then go to that folder on the command line and install the package:

Code:

cd /path/to/folder
rpm -ivh <package>.rpm

a lil problem now...
 
Hi again,

Since I had a lot of items on my desktop, I uninstalled compat-gcc hoping that would eliminate and remove all the patches from my desktop.

That did not happen. compat-gcc got removed from my system, but the patches were still left on my desktop.

I manually deleted the files to trash.

Then I moved the compat-gcc src.rpm to a different folder in my desktop and tried to install the package using yum. I got :

[root@localhost rpm]# yum install compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.128.src.rpm
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
updates-released 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
extras 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
base 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
Cannot open file: compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.128.src.rpm. Skipping.
Nothing to do
[root@localhost rpm]#

(1) why is it skipping the file... the file is present there.
(2) also, where can I find other packages? My up2date has a problem - it wont work for some reason.

thanx

Hello,
I was able to install the package... but the second question still persists.

where do I find new pacakges but not have them install automatically?

thanx

compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.128.src.rpm is a source rpm, not a binary rpm. Source rpms still have to be compiled, I don't think this is what you want. You should search for a binary package.
