Oracle 8.1.5 GNU/Linux

We do not recommed using Oracle Version 8.15 on GNU/Linux. Installation is painfull and difficult. Use Version 8.1.7 ot 9.x instead.

This page deals with Oracle 8.1.5 hints. More general tips and tricks can be found here .

You have to apply the patches before creating any database. During the installation a empty selectbox for network protocols are presented. That is ok. The installaer chooses tcp/ip by default.


Get the patch from install.


Run $ORACLE_HOME/bin/relink all
