Re: Oracle9i Requirements
- Stuart,The requirements for Oracle9i now start at 512 Mb according to the doco. - however, I shouldn't think that would be a 'strict' requirement, your database and/or related software may be a little slower without the proper RAM level. And of course, you may not want to utilize many of the included features and components anyway. I am pretty sure that the latest glibc libraries are okay with this new database product release.Oracle8i has a lesser requirement for RAM, however, it is problematic for installations against the newer glibc libraries; although some people have stated that they have managed to get this to work - I tried and failed on this score. With Oracle8i, I would stick with RH6.2; although it is only certified for the RH6.2 Enterprise Edition which I don't have access to and won't pay $US2,500 for....From Oracle8i, you must have X-Windows to do the installation. I once did an install of Oracle using a Linux Desktop as the X-Window for a HPUX machine that didn't have a X-windows display available. Therefore, one could only presume that any RAM requirements would include X-windows requirements.RegardsAndrewM> Date: Thu, 12 Jul 2001 08:16:08 -0000
