Introduction


This document will help you intall the Oracle Database 11gR1 on Arch Linux. By using the Arch Linux package in AUR, you will be able to finalize the long installation process with only few steps.

Installation


Step 1. Download the Arch Linux package from AUR: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=23730 Download the Oracle database 11gR1: http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/database/index.html

Note: Oracle database 11gR1 for 64-bit Linux doesn't complete the installation properly on Arch Linux.

Step 2. Extract the Arch Linux package into a directory. Copy the Oracle database 11gR1 into that directory as well. and install Oracle by using makepkg:

makepkg -s

In order to create the user oracle and the group dba, makepkg will ask for your root password. After that you'll need to set the password for the user oracle.

Step 3. Install the package that makepkg has created by using pacman:

 pacman -U oracle-11g-i686.pkg.tar.gz

Now pacman will execute Oracle's own installation script(./runInstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs)
