Patches to apply when installing E-Business Suite

I wish to install Oracle E-Business Suite on RHEL-4. Please let me know which patches are to be applied before and after the installation.

Depending on the version of E-Business Suite you wish to install, the operating system patches required can be found by reviewing Oracle's Certification Matrix.

For example, assuming that you wanted to install E-Business Suite Version (11i), you would install the following patches for Red Hat Enterprise AS/ES 4:

  • compat-db-4.1.25-9
  • compat-gcc-32-3.2.3-47.3
  • compat-gcc-32-c++-3.2.3-47.3
  • compat-oracle-rhel4-1.0-3
  • compat-libcwait-2.0-1
  • compat-libgcc-296-2.96-132.7.2
  • compat-libstdc++-296-2.96-132.7.2
  • compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.3
  • xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-devel-6.8.1-23.EL
  • xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.1-23.EL
  • openmotif21-2.1.30-11
  • libaio-0.3.102-1
  • libaio-devel-0.3.102-1

I would encourage you to review the matrix (and not just rely on this list) as there is other information you will require for a successful installation of E-Business Suite. In addition, there is a considerable amount of documentation located on the Oracle Technology Network Web site.
