How much space do we need to install Oracle software (standard edition) if we don't create a database during installation?
This will vary across Oracle releases and will depend on which options you choose when you install the software. It also varies across platforms and operating systems. This information is generally available in the specific installation guide for your Oracle release and operating system. For example, Oracle9i release 9.2 on most UNIX platforms requires approximately 3.5 GB of disk space for just the software; Oracle 10g release 2 on Linux x86 requires between 1.5 and 3.5 GB of disk space depending on the installation. The installation guides can be found on
