Dear Sirs/Madams,

I have installed CentOS 5.5 on an Oracle VM VirtualBox and later installed oracle-validated-1.0.0-5.el5.x86_64.rpm. It did not work at the first time so I tried the followings:

# yum clean all

# yum update

And later I tried:

# yum install ./oracle-validated-1.0.0-5.el5.x86_64.rpm

It continued until it said "completed", so I assumed that it was successful. I have following repo's under yum.repos.d:

$ ls -l
totalt 16
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2245 26 apr 2010 CentOS-Base.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 626 26 apr 2010 CentOS-Media.repo


Later I downloaded the following program and unzipped.

10201_database_linux_x86_64.cpio

I found runInstaller under "database" directory so tried
$ ./runInstaller

But received the following error:

Error in writing to directory /tmp/OraInstall2011-04-04_05-30-03PM. Please ensure that this directory is writable and has at least 60 MB of disk space. Installation cannot continue.
: The file or directory does not exist

I set chmod 777 to the /tmp

The size of the tmp catalog is as follows

size, used, available, used (it was in Swedish, but I guess it is like this)

5,8G 5,5G 9,5M 100% /

I wonder if I should change the available size from 9.5M to 60MB, or if the problem is lurked in somewhere else. An another dba mentioned that when oracle-validated is pre-installed, oracle-base and oracle-home already furnished and therefore there would be a conflict with oracle-base and oracle-home that are fursnished by Oracle program. If that is the case, I do not really know how to solve this problem. I would be really happy if somebody could give me an idea of what would have been the cause for this error and how I would be able to fix the problem.

Thanks in advance!

nothing you are doing results in a supported configuration.
post URL to documentation relating to oracle-validated-1.0.0-5.el5.x86_64.rpm.

Seems you are calling runInstaller as root.
You should call it logged in as oracle (oracle-validated will create the oracle accounts and dba groups for you).

Try again with Oracle user.
If you still get error, I would fix the /tmp directory first.

Dear BlackSwan,

Thanks for your time, actually I was told by an Oracle DBA to just execute

# yum install ./oracle-validated-1.0.0-5.el5.x86_64.rpm

after CentOS was installed on a virtual OS. So that was basically what I did. But I guess I was thinking too easily. I will check the documentations and try to install it again...

Thanks again.

Dear Mahesh,

Thanks for your time.

No, I was not calling runInstaller as root, I was calling from my default user named "Oracle", but I guess I should have logged in to "Oracle" that was created by Oracle-validated as you say?


How exactly would you "fix" /tmp directory?

Thanks a lot!

Hi - am I being stupid, or is this a really simple problem? If your /tmp file system is full, delete all the files in it. As root,

/bin/rm -r /tmp/*

[update: typo]

Hi John,
