FAQ
Greetings ALL!

Have a question for anyone who has info....I'm researching what it would
take to convert a NT database platform (Oracle 81730) to Linux. I have not
approached Metalink yet, but will soon. Does anyone have any information on
Linux? Whether or not Oracle can run on it? Info on the steps involved to do
so?

Thanks,

    Run it on Linux like you would run it on Windows. You do need some Unix skills
    for any OS level work though. Otherwise, Oracle is the same (mostly) on both
    platforms.

    Download Oracle for Linux., It's free for evaluation, education and development
    use from http://www.oracle.com

    Christine,

    Runs fine, but you'll have to use the export/import conversion route. OH,
    and get use to a different OS.

    It run beautifully. i've been running oracle(not so much production but
    up thru testing/QA) on linux platform since 8.0.

    I love it.

    You know that the datafiles format is not compatible, so the only choice
    to "migrate" to linux is exp/imp.

    It runs on linux like it runs on any other *nix(except for solaris, now
    where do they keep that oratab file, oh yea /var/opt/oracle, instead of
    /etc) :)

    Any questions don't hesitate to ask.

    We have Oracle 8.1.7 and 9.2.0 running on Red Hat Linux 7.2 - and love it. It is not a production box though. We are still in "test" mode.

    See http://otn.oracle.com/tech/linux/content.html

    It runs very well.

    Moving a database from NT to Linux is as easy as export/import. Other
    methods exist too.

    Define Linux.

    Check the support matrix. I liked running on Redhat, but Oracle seemed
    to drop support for the free versions after 7.1 or so. Anyway, you may
    want support and so you may want to purchase some of the enterprise
    releases of linux, such as from RedHat or SuSE that are included in the
    support matrix.

    For an inexpensive test environment I moved to Mandrake 9.0 and Oracle
    9.2.0 which went together like a glove. It does require .5GB or ram,
    however and is not supported. I don't care about that for this particular
    effort.

    Free at last!

    Well technically, only the advanced version of RH( are supported, i
    think most if not all(some please clarify) of Suse are supported.

    go here: http://www.redhat.com/oracle_cert/

    for the scoop of versions of oracle on which versions of RH are certified.

    Kewlness! Thanks everyone for your input. Totally off the dba subject...does
    anyone know of any C++ developers that have information regarding converting
    to UNIX. My developers are going stir crazy trying to find any "steps to
    follow when converting C++ applications" for Linux. If not, that's cool, but
    thought I would ask.

    Christine,
    I found it easier ( because I had the OS disks) to load the PC with
    RedHat6.2 and then install Oracle 8.1.7. That eliminated the glib and
    java problems encountered with the RedHat 7.0 and 7.1 versions. Then I
    upgraded the OS to 7.0 and finally 7.1 after I found things ran
    perfectly. There are white papers available on the OTN site for
    installing Oracle on RedHat versions. I would suggest you read them and
    get the required patched on hand if you decide to use RedHat.
    The pc is a 850 MH cpu with 512 M memory and a total of 200 GB disk
    across 4 IDE disks with a SCSI 4mm Tape drive and SCSI Cdrom.
    Compaired to the currrent production DELL 6500 server with 1- 450 Mh
    cpu and 1 G mem with 72 GIG SCSI Raid 5 disk, The Linux box is about 3
    times faster than the Dell box running Novell 5 OS and twice as fast as
    an Alpha class server with 600 Mh cpu and 1 G Mem. and 72 GIG Raid 5
    disks.
    I use the Linux box as a test and play familiarity box to get use to
    the new options available for Oracle and to gain confidence for my OCP
    tests.

    Greetings ALL!

    Have a question for anyone who has info....I'm researching what it
    would
    take to convert a NT database platform (Oracle 81730) to Linux. I have
    not
    approached Metalink yet, but will soon. Does anyone have any
    information on
    Linux? Whether or not Oracle can run on it? Info on the steps involved
    to do
    so?

    Thanks,

    We have experience numerous problems with high transaction load
    databases. The i/o drivers and memory drivers have proven to be
    unstable. The largest problem seems to occur with the memory drivers.
    Try running a linux database with and SGA over 1GB. We have been able
    to duplicate these experiences on Redhat 7.1 - 7.3, running Oracle
    8.1.7.3 EE. We have better success running the 2.2 kernel. We plan on
    testing Redhat AS 2.1. Otherwise we may stop recommending linux boxes
    as oracle database servers.

    A particularly bad experience was running a 200+ GB data mart on a linux
    box.

    If you are running a large production db on oracle/linux, I would really
    like to hear about the configuration.

    Thanks,

    -Daniel

    I'll be able to tell you more about 9.2.0.2 on RH 8.0 after this weekend.
    I don't expect any trouble.

    Well technically, only the advanced version of RH( are supported, i
    think most if not all(some please clarify) of Suse are supported.

    go here: http://www.redhat.com/oracle_cert/

    for the scoop of versions of oracle on which versions of RH
    are certified.

    It run beautifully. i've been running oracle(not so much
    production but
    up thru testing/QA) on linux platform since 8.0.

    I love it.

    You know that the datafiles format is not compatible, so the
    only choice
    to "migrate" to linux is exp/imp.

    It runs on linux like it runs on any other *nix(except for
    solaris, now
    where do they keep that oratab file, oh yea /var/opt/oracle,
    instead of
    /etc) :)



    Any questions don't hesitate to ask.

    There are tons of IDE software like Anjuta, CodeWarrior, CodeCrusader, Grasp
    and alike which can ease up transition. The following URL is, however,
    worth looking if you have to deal with hard core Micros*t guys:

    Kewlness! Thanks everyone for your input. Totally off the dba
    subject...does
    anyone know of any C++ developers that have information
    regarding converting
    to UNIX. My developers are going stir crazy trying to find
    any "steps to
    follow when converting C++ applications" for Linux. If not,
    that's cool, but
    thought I would ask.

    Thanks,

    See http://otn.oracle.com/tech/linux/content.html

    It runs very well.

    Moving a database from NT to Linux is as easy as export/import. Other
    methods exist too.
