32.3. Setting Oracle Environment Variables
Make sure to set the following Oracle environment variables before you execute runInstaller.
As the oracle user, execute the following commands. Make sure to set the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL environment variable for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4. Use the "Linuxthreads with floating stacks" implementation instead of NPTL.
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 # for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19 # for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
For the Oracle Environment:
export ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle export ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/9.2.0 export ORACLE_SID=test export ORACLE_TERM=xterm
You will need to export
tnsnames.oraand other variables are not present in
export NLS_LANG=AMERICAN; export ORA_NLS33=$ORACLE_HOME/ocommon/nls/admin/data LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Set the shell search paths:
You can add these environment settings to the end of the
~oracle/.bash_profilefile if you use bash. This will ensure that the environment variables are set permanently when you log in as "
oracle", or when you switch to the user "
oracle" by executing "
su - oracle".
