31.3. Required Packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4

Ensure the following packages are installed by executing the following command:
rpm -q make                    \
    compat-db                      \
    compat-gcc-32                  \
    compat-gcc-32-c++              \
    compat-oracle-rhel4            \
    compat-libcwait                \
    compat-libgcc-296              \
    compat-libstdc++-296           \
    compat-libstdc++-33            \
    gcc                            \
    gcc-c++                        \
    gnome-libs                     \
    gnome-libs-devel               \
    libaio-devel                   \
    libaio                         \
    make                           \
    openmotif21                    \
    xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-devel \
    xorg-x11-deprecated-libs
Many of these packages depend on other packages. For example, compat-gcc-32 requires binutils, gcc and several other packages. You may have to install the following RPMs to satisfy Oracle's dependencies:
rpm -Uvh compat-db-4.1.25-9.i386.rpm     \
    compat-gcc-32-3.2.3-47.3.i386.rpm             \

    glibc-headers-2.3.4-2.i386.rpm                \
    glibc-kernheaders-2.4-9.1.87.i386.rpm         \
    cpp-3.4.3-9.EL4.i386.rpm                      \
    compat-gcc-32-c++-3.2.3-47.3.i386.rpm         \
    compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.3.i386.rpm       \
    gcc-3.4.3-9.EL4.i386.rpm                      \
    cpp-3.4.3-9.EL4.i386.rpm                      \
    gcc-c++-3.4.3-9.EL4.i386.rpm                  \

Note

If you are using the Red Hat Network(RHN), you can run:
up2date gnome-libs gnome-libs-devel
You can use the up2date command for any packages. It takes care of dependencies by installing all required packages automatically.
To install the compat-oracle-rhel4 and compat-libcwait packages you have to download the patch 4198954 from http://metalink.oracle.com. Make sure to select the Linux x86 platform. To unzip the downloaded p4198954_21_LINUX.zip file, run:
$ unzip p4198954_21_LINUX.zip

inflating: 4198954/README.txt

Note

The compat-oracle-rhel4 and compat-libcwait packages require the xorg-x11-deprecated-libs and xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-devel packages, see above. To install the two RPMs from the 4198954 patch, run:
# rpm -Uvh 4198954/compat-oracle-rhel4-1.0-5.i386.rpm 4198954/compat-libcwait-2.0-2.i386.rpm
