Install LinuxPretty straightforward. Used Oracle 6.7, as 7 is not certified. Create a 200MB /boot, and an LVM for /, both ext4. Install just the server. Deselect *all* options, just X system and X legacy support (the OUI needs it). Some 566 packages will get installed. Make sure it boots, and the network starts.
Linux MaintenanceChange /etc/sysconfig/selinux to read
I needed to use
ifup eth0Address that by editing /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and change
Update to the latest:
As a pleasant surprise, my 6.6 was updated to 6.7, according to the boot messages.
Then, log in as root again, and start preparing for installs:
yum install oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall
Also, add the following to /etc/sysctl.conf:
# IPv6 disabled net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1
As the oracle preinstall alters you grub, you do want to... reboot.

Database/oracle/depot/12G/database/runInstaller - fails with
"PRVF-0002: could not retrieve local node name".
I have to modify the hosts file (/etc/hosts), and add the current ip address and host name. I chose just to install the software, for a single instance database, changed the base to /oracle/app, and that changes the db software location to /oracle/app/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1. All else remains default.

JavaInstall the latest Java JDK; WLS 12C needs a development environment...
tar zxf /oracle/depot/weblogic/jdk-8u51-linux-x64.tar.gz -C /oracle mv /oracle/jdk1.8.0_51/* /oracle/java/Alter .bash_profile, source it, and check:
export JAVA_HOME=/oracle/java/jre export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH [oracle@tvs] . .bash_profile [oracle@tvs] java -version java version "1.8.0_51" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_51-b16) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.51-b03, mixed mode)This version is not aligned with the installers, these make Java throw this warning:

Use netca to create a listener, or manually, if you like that:
[oracle@tvs ~]$ cat /oracle/app/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1/network/admin/listener.ora # listener.ora Network Configuration File: /oracle/app/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1/network/admin/listener.ora # Generated by Oracle configuration tools. LISTENER = (DESCRIPTION_LIST = (DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = tvs)(PORT = 1521)) ) )
If you want to cut-n-paste the above code, make sure to manually start the listener, using lsnrctl start.
Repository Creation Utility
OK, that has no problems installing against a 12C database. I heart (never seen it, though) that previous versions would not install against 12C.
java -jar -d64 /oracle/depot/weblogic/fmw_22.214.171.124.0_wls.jarDo NOT start the Configuration Wizard. Also, make sure, this is the first install in your middleware home - WLS refuses to install in a non-empty location.
OUDHas been done before, nothing new, but for the Java version used here.
/oracle/depot/OFM/126.96.36.199.0/oud_188.8.131.52.0/Disk1/runInstaller -jreLoc $JAVA_HOME
Just as well create an instance, as described here.
