Have you ever thought that installing Oracle software on Linux should be so easy as it is on Windows? I think that a lot. At my company we realized that everytime we needed to install Oracle Database and/or Oracle AS, we needed to do some pre-install tasks that were always annoying. As result of that… we’ve made preparing Linux for Oracle Software Installation easy like Sunday morning! What we’ve done? All… All you need:
configure kernel parameteres, sysctl, limits
create oracle user, dba and oinstall groups
create directory for software installation and assign the ownership to oracle:install
check for any missing package dependency… and Install them!
All in a simple GUI interface! It’s NEOPI… Neoface Oracle pre-installer. This works for 9i, 10g and 11g… also works for OAS 10g!
What you need to run it? Only a X Window System working and an Internet connection (if Gnome is missing NEOPI install it too 🙂 ) . This works under Oracle Linux, CentOS and Redhat Enterprise Linux… any 4.x or 5.x version!
This tool uses yum or up2date to install silently any package that’s missing on your Linux installation.
Better than words… I guess a video will show you ALL about it!
